Discover Santa Convention in Branson

Branson Reunion of Santas to Benefit Toys for Tots July 6 - 10, 2016


The annual Discover Santa Convention at Chateau on the Lake brings Christmas to Branson in July! You’ll find more rosy cheeks, twinkling eyes, and red fur trimmed suits Discover-Santa-Convention-Bransonthan you’ve probably ever seen in one place at this get together for Santa enthusiasts from around the country. Hundreds of Santas gather for several days of meeting fellow professional Santas, performances from Branson entertainers, charity events, vendors, and dozens of workshops. The convention & yearly reunion originated in 2006, and continues to grow and improve each year! The Discover Santa convention is yet another great Branson summer event benefitting the Toys for Tots organization.


Events and Activities at Discover Santa


  • See why “red is the new black” at the Meet the Kringles Fashion Show, where you’ll see a huge variety of costume styles for both Mr. and Mrs. Claus!
  • Branson is a popular destination for family reunions, so what better place for a Kringle Family Reunion, where you can meet hundreds of other convention attendees!
  • Even those not attending the convention can enjoy the Parade of Red Suits at the Branson Landing, where the Santas will be joined by other floats, entertainers, and more.
  • The SNO-lympics are a lot of fun for Santas who love reindeer games! From obstacle courses and relay races to less physically taxing events like Christmas tree decorating and stocking stuffings, this is the place for Santas and Mrs. Clauses to show off their talents!
  • Santa is known for giving, and the convention’s blood drive is the great opportunity to give in a meaningful, life saving way!
  • See how Santa gets around when his sleigh isn’t available at the Car & Motorcycle show.
  • Learn something new at workshops such as tips on posing for photos, how to create memorable interactions with children, and how to market yourself online.
  • The Red Suit Gala is one of the highlights of the event, with live entertainment and a banquet.
