Deck your halls, hang your stockings and get your wish lists ready – Santa is coming to town to make the holiday season merry and bright. Find out where he’ll be parking his sleigh in Mississauga this year. 

Visit Santa While You Shop

Mississauga’s malls are lucky to be visited by the big guy himself, and their Christmas displays are sure to get you into the festive spirit. Head over to Square One or Erin Mills for a visit and a special photo while you finish up your holiday shopping!

Square One Shopping Centre:

  • Santa has finally arrived at Square One. No need to book an appointment.
  • To secure your sport with Santa – simply scan the QR code on posters located throughout the shopping centre, and provide your contact information, and you will be placed in a virtual queue.
  • You may continue shopping until you receive an ‘It’s Your Turn’ message. You then return to the chalet for your visit with Santa.
  • BONUS: This year the Santa Set Experience is complimentary and includes a free photo.

Erin Mills Town Centre:

  • Santa arrives November 13 and you’ll find him in Centre Court. Pre-registration is required.
  • Furry friends are welcome to visit Santa as well on select dates.
