What is the World Santa Claus Congress?

The World Santa Claus Congress has taken place in the Dyrehavsbakken amusement park (usually shortened to Bakken) north of Copenhagen in Denmark since 1957. Every summer, Bakken is invaded by Santas from around the world who gather to spread good Christmas cheer, have fun and socialise with their peers.

The World Santa Claus Congress at Bakken is both a professional forum and social meeting place for real Santas from all around the world. Here Santas from around the world have the opportunity to meet and exchange experiences and to network. The Congress also provides a chance to promote the Santa Clause trade and show how Christmas cheer is done in different parts of the world.

The World Santa Claus Congress was created in the middle of the last century by Professor Tribini, Bakken’s legendary entertainer, who did not believe that Christmas should only happen once a year. And as the Santas are usually very busy in December, the professor created ‘Christmas in July’ – an event which now attracts hundreds of Santas and both female and male Christmas pixies and elves. And many thousands of spectators.

The World Santa Claus Congress is Christmas fun – in the middle of summer.
