Follow along with the CGO Elf up until Christmas as she explores the farm with all we have to see and do. We hope she can stay on Santa's nice list!
When you purchase a ticket for Brunch with Santa, you can meet our elf in person along with Santa & Rudolph. They all  will be excited to see you!

You’ve been asking and here’s your answer!

Santa Claus is coming to town! 🎅🏼

Join us for Brunch with Santa each weekend until Christmas.  Tickets must be purchased online and include brunch 🍴, crafts and activities 🎨, a CGO Express train ride (weather permitting) 🚂, and of course...SANTA! 🎅🏼

Being safe is a gift we can all give each other this year, so Santa (masked) will be in the chair while children (masked) share their wishes with him from the straw bales behind the picket fence. Elves will help monitor the timing so that each child/family gets their best-that-2020-can-offer photo op 📷 with Santa. 

Tickets are limited for each time slot.

We at CGO are so grateful for our staff who came up with creative and adapting ideas then put more than 💯 effort into it. 
And you! Thank you! For your support, feedback and ideas so we can better provide the space for running, jumping, picking, laughing, playing and of course, eating! 
We hope the joy sustains you and your loved ones and you too feel the gratitude with memories that last a lifetime!
