A project of the James D. Rielly Foundation, Bristol Santa House™ is a family-friendly holiday destination full of joy, whimsy, and nostalgia, where the season comes alive through interactive experiences, live performances, and Hallmark-worthy moments.
The mission of the Bristol Santa House is to foster the magic of Christmas for children with special needs and their families. We provide immersive holiday experiences free of charge through community partnerships. Our volunteer-run organization strives to create cherished memories, spread holiday cheer, support our community, and promote goodwill and giving.
The Bristol Santa House envisions a welcoming place where children of all abilities can experience the wonder of the holidays. We see a space for children with special needs and their families to make treasured memories, sharing wishes with Santa Claus regardless of any physical, mental, or financial challenges. We see the Bristol Santa House becoming a yearly destination, generating incremental revenue for businesses through enhanced tourism.
The Bristol Santa House is available to other charities and community organizations focused on helping families and children in need.
