Christmas Workshops & Entertainment
Doghill visitors get to join Christmas crafting workshops, decorate gingerbread cookies and Christmas cards. All of the workshops and materials used are included in the ticket price. During the festival, the elves walk around town and invite visitors to join in their games. When the night falls, the visitors can relax and admire a spectacular fire show by the duck pond.
Come and visit Santa’s reindeer at an enclosure at the edge of the Doghill town. Other Doghill animals, such as minipigs, mangalitza pigs, sheep and pygmy goats, can also be seen daily around the park.
