Where Is Santa's Cottage Located?

Santa's Cottage is located on Broadway in front of Putnam Market (across from Caroline Street) in downtown Saratoga.

Will Santa Be at His Cottage in 2020?

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Santa will not be in his cottage in Saratoga Springs this holiday season. However, his cottage will still be on Broadway, and local children are invited to bring their letters to Santa and deposit them in Santa's mailbox on the front of the cottage.

In addition, as an alternative to in-person visits with Santa, the Saratoga Springs Downtown Business Association and Stewart's Shops are bringing Santa to the children of Saratoga Springs. On six dates prior to Christmas, children are invited to catch a glimpse of Santa as he travels through Saratoga neighborhoods atop a Tower Ladder fire truck, provided by King Enterprises.

Santa Is Coming To Town is sponsored by Stewart's Shops. Dates, as well as neighborhoods that Santa will visit, will be available on
