Alumni Weekend at Santa’s Village

October 4th, 2017

Please note that due to inclement weather, Santa’s Village plans to close the park today, Oct. 14. Tickets can be used on weekends through Oct. 29 and on weekends from Nov. 24 until Dec. 23. We’re sorry for any inconvenience.

The NIU Alumni Association is offering tickets to Santa’s Village during the weekend of Oct. 14-15 for only $15.25 to alumni and friends instead of the $24.25 admission at the gate – almost a 40 percent discount. This is the lowest rate that you’ll find for these tickets.

As a bonus, each guest wearing red and black or Huskie gear will receive a giveaway (while supplies last) at the alumni table, which will be stationed inside the main gate from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and NIU’s mascot Mission will be there to greet you from noon until 2 p.m. Saturday.

Visit the corporate access pass program to get your discounted tickets. Or you can visit and enter NIUAlum@Santa as the store name.

In addition to the deal on admission tickets at this website, you can get bucks to play games for only $15 instead of the standard $20 and get soda refills all day when you pay only $8 for a souvenir cup.

Santa’s Village will take you back in time as you see Santa and the spinning snowball ride that you once enjoyed as a kid. Besides rides, families can enjoy Santa’s reindeer, zoo animals, games, magic shows and story time programs. The park will be open from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.

For more information, call the NIU Alumni Association at 815-753-1452.
