Christmas activities and program
Doghill Christmas is full of fun activities and programs. This year, the spotlight is on Doghill's animal friends who celebrate their own Christmas at Doghill both in the cozy stable and outdoor enclosures. You can also try pony rides (7 € per ride).
In the Doghill House (Koiramäen talo), children's Christmas gift wishes are listened to by the real Santa Claus, and at the Grandma's house (Mummula), you can meet the mysterious Kotatonttu elf, the protector of the elves' tasks, who shares secrets with groups and helps everyone find their own mission. Visits to Kotatonttu and Santa Claus are included in the Doghill entrance ticket price and are suitable for the whole family.
In Dr. Oetker's gingerbread workshop, you can decorate gingerbread cookies, and at the Purina gift wrapping workshop, you can wrap a special treat for your furry friend. Tassu Theater hosts festive celebrations, and at various animal enclosures, you can observe both the animals' feeding shows and the Mangalitza pigs' Christmas gift playtime. You can also listen to a Christmas story, and each event day concludes with Fire Lady's Christmas fire show.
At Gunnas Bookstore and Tropin ja Nekun Candy Store, you can do your Christmas shopping, and Cafe Von Guggelböö and Hurtan Hattara & Tötterö's treats, as well as the tent's tasty grilled sausages will keep you warm even in cold weather. Don't forget about String Pull, where you can win a prize with every pull! Join the fun Elf Path too!
