The Holiday Hoedown With Santa at the Farm!

by | Nov 26, 2019 | Community

 Join us at the Gilchrist Farm on Saturday and Sunday, December 14th and 15th for the second annual Holiday Hoedown. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be with us all day long on both days. The event will kick off with a festive holiday horse and rider parade at 10 a.m. on Saturday, December 14th. The parade will feature horses and riders in their holiday best and will deliver Santa himself by festive wagon. Once Santa arrives at the event, guests can enjoy pictures with Santa, Mrs. Claus and other festive farm friends. The wagon will then begin boarding passengers for caroling rides around the farm, led in song by festive elves straight from the north pole.
The entire weekend we’ll feature live holiday music, food and treats. Kettle corn, cotton candy, hot chocolate bar, tamales and more. There will be pony rides and a festive petting zoo, complete with goats in sweaters and pigs in blankets. At “Santa’s Workshop” we’ll have a host of fun holiday crafts to make and take.
Get in some holiday shopping and support local vendors. We’ll have a great mix of local, handmade items: jewelry, signs, unique t shirts, hand painted items and much more-along with local vendors selling LuLaRoe, LipSense, Origami Owl, Young Living Oils, Usborne Books and others.
We’ll also feature gift cards and baskets from the farm! Looking for a special experience to gift? How about a week of our incredible summer camp or an introductory horseback riding lesson package? Get a gift card to Gilchrist Farm at the Holiday Hoedown all wrapped up with a nice handmade goat’s milk soap to present a truly unique gift this season.
Join us at the farm year-round for horseback riding lessons & birthday parties. Join us every Saturday all year from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for pony rides, petting zoo, wagon rides and farm crafts. Keep an eye on our classes next year as we resume soap making, cheese making, and animal care classes in the spring. Gilchrist Farm is an approved vendor for several local homeschool and charter schools including Inspire, Sky Mountain, Sage Oak and the Gorman Learning Center.
Gilchrist Farm is located at 30116 Bouquet Canyon Road, Santa Clarita. Learn more at
