Holiday-Candy-Canes

Sensitive Santa sponsored by Therapy Connections

The holidays are a magical time for families to experience the wonder of Santa and to create heartfelt memories together. Understanding that children with sensory sensitivities may require a more customized experience, The Mall at Fairfield Commons will offer Sensitive Santa®, a sensory-friendly holiday event.

During Sensitive Santa, families will have the opportunity to meet Santa prior to the center opening for a quieter, more subdued experience, with the opportunity to support Autism Speaks. With each purchase of a photo with Santa, a portion of proceeds will be donated to support the mission of Autism Speaks’ important research and advocacy.

This family-friendly event allows children with special needs to experience the annual magic of the holidays in safe, controlled environment, featuring alternative seating options for children taking photos with Santa, as well as muted lights, quiet music, and reduced center traffic to help lessen sensory stimuli.

The event is free to attend and photographs are available for purchase. Advanced registration is required.

The Mall at Fairfield Commons remains focused on providing a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone. In addition to our already rigorous cleaning practices, guests will also find hand sanitization stations located throughout the town center. We ask that everyone conduct themselves in a safe and respectful way in accordance with all federal, state, and local regulations, recommendations and health mandates, as well as each individual retailer's policies.

Registration opens November 12th at 10AM. Please click this link to register one ticket per family: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sensitive-santa-tickets-205334279357
