The Story: Jolly the Bear Needs Help!

Jolly the Bear was left behind at the train station and has to get to Santa’s Workshop to be finished in time for Christmas Day! The little ones—and their Christmas spirit—are needed to help Jolly get to the North Pole so he can become an official Santa Train Conductor Bear!

Join the Conductor, Santa, Jolly, and a cast of holiday friends on this magical journey to the North Pole. Enjoy visits with our special hosts, lots of fun and entertainment, and hot cocoa and cookies. As a special thanks for making Jolly’s Christmas wish come true, children get a toy Jolly Bear ornament from Santa to take home.

The Station

Joined by Elf and Fairy friends, the conductor greets guests at the station and welcomes them aboard the Santa Train. When this interactive musical journey begins, be ready to sing, cheer, and dance! Meet poor, unfinished Jolly, and don’t forget to bring a secret Santa unwrapped gift for Foster Kids of Napa.

All Aboard!

Climb aboard with Santa, Jolly the Bear, and their holiday friends to embark on a special Christmas mission and experience you won’t get anywhere else. Play games and join in sing-a-longs with a fun cast of characters on your way to Santa’s village and workshop.

North Pole Journey

On the return journey, enjoy even more songs and games. Fairy will collect letters to Santa, and Santa and Jolly will hand out toy bears. Watch as little faces light up with pure Christmas joy as they help complete the mission to deliver Jolly the Bear.

Our Partner

Giving back during the holiday season is important to us. That's why we've partnered with the Napa Valley Food Bank for this event. In support of the food bank, we ask that each guest bring a non-perishable item to donate, and we will collect the items at the station.
