 Generations of Oregonians have fond memories of the downtown Portland Meier & Frank department store’s Santaland. A ride on the iconic Monorail and a chance to sit on Santa’s lap became a Christmas tradition for many families.

Following the closure of Macy’s downtown store (which purchased Meier & Frank in 2005) this past year, items from Santaland were donated to the Oregon Historical Society and the Portland Business Alliance.

This holiday season, the OHS Santaland is on display until Dec. 31 and features Santa’s throne, Rudolph, animatronic elves, and a decorated Christmas tree.

OHS is pleased to announce that Santa will be visiting Santaland from 12 – 4 p.m.:

  • Sunday, Dec. 4 (part of the Holiday Cheer event)
  • Saturday & Sunday, Dec. 9 & 10
  • Saturday & Sunday, Dec. 16 & 17
  • Saturday, Dec. 23


Admission to view the Santaland display is free, and photos with Santa are welcome.
