Tips for Hiring Santa Claus

If you’re interested in having Santa Claus attend this year’s holiday party, there are a few factors to help you pick the best performer yet.

  • Santa Costume – You want a Santa Claus that matches the picture in your head. The jolly old man with a big beard, the red suit, and a magical look in their eyes. You want someone who can bring the tales of Santa Claus to life.
  • Background and Insurance – Santa Claus is magical, but you’re still inviting a stranger around your children. You want to ensure everyone is safe. Make sure the Santa you hire is a professional with a clean background check and Entertainer Liability Insurance in place.
  • Children – For most holiday parties, Santa Claus is there for the children. As such, you’ll want to consider how Santa will interact with the kids. Consider providing a little information on guests so Santa can personalize the visit.

Questions to Ask

Before you make a concrete decision, here are a few questions to ask your potential Santa Claus:

  • What will Santa Claus be wearing to the event?
  • What does Santa Claus offer in addition to visiting the children?
  • How long does the performance/visit generally last?
  • What rates are charged for a visit that runs past its time?
