The Mariemont Elves Are Coming to Town

The Shillito's Elves are back in Mariemont and better than ever!

Along the beautiful streets of Mariemont you will see the The Shillito Elves back in business at Santa’s Workshop, located at 6940 Madisonville Road (in the Village of Mariemont, across the street from the Mariemont Inn and next to LaRosa’s.) The Shillito Elves are bringing all of the holiday magic with them beginning Friday, November 24 – December 30.

In addition to this exciting, walk-through experience, kids will love mailing their letters to Santa, touring his workshop featuring over 60 of the restored animated elves in 14 largely original scenes, an all-new scavenger hunt (with a chance to win holiday gifts and keepsakes!), new scene updates and more.

Mariemont is the spot to experience the holidays with the family. This quaint, family-friendly town has it all: from The Shillito’s Elves’ Workshop, Breakfast with Santa at the National Exemplar, Village of Mariemont Annual Tree Lighting and Luminaria Event local shops, restaurants, the historical village (did we mention free parking?) – your holiday fun is set.

Admission is $5; free parking; open Thursday & Friday: 2 – 7:30 p.m.; Saturday & Sunday: 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.; closed Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday; open extended days leading up to Christmas (Monday – Sunday). Follow Santa’s Workshop on Facebook for the latest or visit for all of the “Merry”mont magic!
