Every year, the Center brings the North Pole
to the heart of Escondido. Children will
have the chance to frolic in real snow, decorate their very own Christmas cookies, and
even rendezvous with live reindeer!
The highlight for kids is, of course, Santa
Claus himself, but there will also be a number of holiday-themed entertainers — from
carolers, to stilt walkers, to hula dancers — 
for all ages to enjoy. Food and drink will be
available to warm your hands and hearts,
and a number of local businesses will be
displaying their wares for your holiday
shopping needs.
At dusk, our Winter Wonderland Forest will
come alive with twinkling lights, and no
one will be able to resist the holiday spirit!
There are always a few extra surprises in
store, so don’t miss your chance to celebrate
the holidays at the Center!
The festival begins at 3:00pm and ends at
8:00pm. It is free and open to the public.
Guests will not need a ticket to enjoy the
festival, but you can RSVP if you want to
avoid Santa’s Naughty List!
ArtHatch and Distinction Gallery are proud
to present a solo exhibition by sculpturist,
Valency Genis, entitled “Spirit Guides”. Valency Genis is an amazing sculpture artist
that creates hybrid creatures of fancy. She
hails from the Republic of Cascadia; she
entered the world as a 12-pound baby born
in Portland, Oregon, and was then raised in
Seattle, Washington. She was utterly obsessed with television and video games for
most of her life, so it is ironic that a summer spent on Flathead Lake, Montana in
an electronics-free log cabin when she was
10 years old would change her life forever.
