It’s a time honored Christmas tradition — having a photo taken with Santa Claus. But did you know there are quite a few opportunities to meet Santa without paying for an expensive photo package?
We’re listing all the free Santa photo opps we can find around Atlanta and suburbs, for the 2021 holiday season. It’s a day-by-day format, in chronological order.
It’s still very early in the season, though, so the list will continue to grow. Last year, we had over 100 free photo opps!
If you know of other free Santa photo events in metro Atlanta, you can send the details to email@example.com and we’ll add them.
Things to know
- This day-by-day list includes photo opportunities for both people and pets
- These photo opps go right up until Christmas Eve — so you have plenty of time!

- Remember, there may be a line (but some venues let you reserve a time slot)
