Visit Father Christmas and his Elves at Ulster American Folk Park

Contact Information


Here at the Ulster American Folk Park, Father Christmas and Mrs Claus are toasting their toes by the turf fire before they pack up the sleigh for Christmas!

The North Pole elves are busy getting things ready and spreading magic dust wherever they go. Did you know that only children who truly believe in Christmas magic can see the elves? They aren’t so fond of grown-ups!

Take in the magic of Christmas with a stroll through the snowy streets of Ulster and America, where one of our elves will then guide you to the magical home of Father Christmas and Mrs Claus. If you’ve made it on the good list, you might even receive a traditional wooden gift to bring home.

While you’re there, meet the Chief Story Elf for readings of the ‘Night before Christmas’ and fill up on Christmas shortbread and mulled spiced apple juice.
