On Saturday, December 4, 2022, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., the Fenton History Center will be hosting a “sensory friendly” Santa Claus at the Fenton Mansion.
This event is geared towards children and families who might be uncomfortable, nervous, or anxious in the traditional Santa Claus encounter environments, which often feature bright lights, loud music, and large crowds. The Santa at our event has experience working with people with disabilities, and the room around him will be set up to be calming and straightforward, while maintaining festive elements where appropriate.
Children who attend the event must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver. This event is free, and open to any community members who wish to attend.
The Fenton is committed to making sure that all our visitors can have a safe, educational, and enjoyable experience. For more information about the event, or to request any special accommodations, please contact Jane Babinsky at the Fenton History Center by calling (716)-664-6256.
