Event date: 2022-12-17

Skydiving Saint Nick is soaring to town for Fayetteville’s annual Santa Drop! Watch the big jump live at the Arkansas Air & Military Museum on Saturday, December 17th, as Santa and his Elves make the leap.

Make plans to witness “the most magical 90 seconds in Fayetteville” this year and it just might become your new favorite holiday tradition!

Santa Drop is free to attend, with gates open to the public at 10am. Just be sure you’ve made it into the museum grounds by 11am to see Santa and his jolly crew fall from the sky! Attendees can write their Christmas wishes on a paper airplane to be flown to Santa for later reading and pose for pictures with him at his makeshift sleigh - a C-130 Hercules.

Want to see Santa twice in the same day? Head to Fayetteville’s downtown Square where the Lights of the Ozarks display bursts to life at 5pm! Santa will be on the Square for visits and pictures from 6-9pm on Saturday, December 17th, the evening of the Santa Drop. 

Need to fill some time before the lights shine bright? Check out our list of holiday fun and get your fill of festivities in Fayetteville!
