If you can't get the kids out to see St. Nick this year, don't worry, we'll bring him to you digitally!

Book a Zoom with St. Nick session so your kids can let the big man know what they want for the holidays; he's got a direct line to Santa! Each session is 10 minutes long and is just for you and your children.

Patrons will be sent a personalized Zoom link in the half-hour before the session. It's that simple; just have your kids ready to go and sign on when you're ready!

Tickets: $19 ($15 ArtsQuest Members)
