{GET YOUR TICKETS HERE on Thursday, November 14th at 9pm EST!}

Chattanooga Moms invites your family to travel with us to the North Pole for a winter’s evening! Our annual Christmas event at the historic and sumptuously decorated Chattanooga Choo Choo {formerly Cookies with Santa} will be a night of merriment, twinkle lights and all things Christmas. Some of our favorite businesses and schools will make up the North Pole village scene with Reindeer Stables, Santa’s Post Office, Snowman’s Hot Chocolate Bar, Candy Cane Lane, a Snowflake Factory, Christmas Tree Farm, Elves Workshop, the Legend of St. Nicholas, the Nutcracker Theater, and a Sweets and Coffee Shop! There will be reserved spots for guaranteed photo sittings with Santa, shot by Tinman Tintype Photography, as well as ice skating outside in the Choo Choo Gardens. With door prizes, swag for all attendees, crafts and tasty snacks, it will be night perfect for the whole family to enjoy. Chattanooga Moms loves to be a part of your family’s holiday season and we look forward to seeing you there! 

To minimize Santa picture wait times and maximize merriment, we will be selling tickets in 30 minute time slots, starting at 4pm and running until 8 pm. Please be on time and in line during your selected time slot, as there will be no holds for the spots reserved once time is expired. Your reservation guarantees your family has a short wait time and no-rush Santa sitting.

In partnership with the Forgotten Child Fund, this year the A Night at the North Pole event will include a Grand Prize Family Giveaway, sponsored by the Chattanooga Moms and the Chattanooga Choo Choo. Any unwrapped Christmas presents for a child between the ages of 0-16 years will be entered into this raffle ticket giveaway. 

The Forgotten Child Fund is a locally run organization headed up by the Chattanooga Fire, Chattanooga Police and Hamilton County EMS departments and began over 50 years ago, in a effort to make sure there were no children in Chattanooga who were forgotten by Santa Claus. Real life heroes spend their Christmas Eves delivering toys, clothes and a Christmas feast during the Santa Train event each year. We are thrilled to help the FCF collect gifts this year!
