Royal Botanical Gardens Holiday Traditions


Santa makes multiple appearances at the RBG in Burlington during the holiday season. There’s the Santa Signature Experience, where you climb aboard the RBG Express train for an hour-long round-trip to see Christmas lights in Hendrie Park before visiting Santa in his cabin. You can also reserve Brunch with Santa and Mrs. Claus on three dates in December. Included with regular RGB admission on select dates are visits with Santa and storytelling with Mrs. Claus (this one requires advance registration), both in Santa’s Cabin—you can take a train ride there for an extra $2.
