Santa’s Arrival


The City of Acworth is excited to partner with NorthStar Church each year to make Santa’s Arrival the best yet! Santa will be reaching the Depot in downtown Acworth on Friday, December 1, 2017. Festivities begin around 5:30 p.m. and Santa arrives around 6:30 p.m. There will be a host of live performances into the evening to help Santa kickoff the holiday season.

Bring the entire family to hear Mayor Tommy Allegood read The Night Before Christmas and watch the lighting of the tree on Main Street.

Enjoy pictures with Santa, eating candy canes with all his elves, and filling the streets with the holiday spirit. There will be face painting, train rides, hot chocolate and a live nativity. Don’t forget to visit Frana Brown Park, where you can peruse the beautiful Festival of Trees!

Pictures with Santa are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Make sure to line up soon to guarantee a picture! Plan on bringing your camera to capture the special moment. Don’t want to wait in line? No worries! Santa will be back in Acworth for pictures at the Depot on select Saturdays later in the holiday season.
