Santa was fantastic!

From the booking process through the conclusion of our event, he was informative, helpful, and easy to work with. We have every intention of calling upon Santa again for next year’s event. Thank you!

Santa was awesome!

Hiring Santa Chicago for our annual Christmas party was the best decision I ever made! All of my guests were completely surprised and everyone had a lovely time. I can’t wait until next year!

Best Santa

Whenever I picture Santa Clause, I picture the Real Bearded Santa Chicago!! He was Awesome! The kids loved him, and the ones who didn’t believe, now have doubts! I will definitely hire him again and recommend him to others. He was very professional, on time, well mannered. Interacted with the kids and sang happy birthday for the birthday girl.. Made himself at home!! Thank you again, Santa!!!

Stress Free Experience

Santa Chicago – Real Bearded Macy’s Santa on a 1 to 5 scale was easily a 10! He was perfect with our believing guests, compassionate and caring with a disabled guest, and, when the people didn’t come to him, mingled with the crowd and spread Christmas cheer. Our Christmas party was held for friends and clients at iFly in Naperville. Santa stayed late and stayed in character. He said he wondered how it would be to fly without reindeer and then took three flights in the tunnel (boots and all). What he added to our party was huge!
SHARRON E, Naperville, IL

All time Favorite!

Santa was perfect! He even drove over an hour in a snowstorm to us and arrived on time, He truly is magic! The kids LOVED him and Santa made sure to talk to each of the 15 kids individually was available for pictures for all guests and sat with a few guests and shared a meal with them! Very happy, will hire again!

Best Santa Ever

Santa Chicago was wonderful! The children really enjoyed his visit and he was truly the real deal. Each child got to take pictures, tell their wishes, and get some wonderfully practical advice in return as well! We will certainly consider him for next year’s event! Thanks again!
Daria J, Bensenville, IL

So Good!!

He is the real deal!!!

I went back and forth on hiring an actor that could roll with things or a more authentic Santa. I chose authenticity, and couldn’t have been happier. He was so gentle and kind. I had 45 kids and 2 hours scheduled. He spent about 2 minutes per child. He beautifully and effortlessly set up shots for parent after parent to capture the magic of the moment while the child was virtually unaware of the pictures. With the remaining time we had, he sat on the floor with the children all around him while talking and reading “T’was the Night Before Christmas”. My 5th grader, who was on the fence before this, emphatically declared she had met the real Santa!! Whew!! Will book again!!

Santa was AMAZING

Santa was AMAZING. All of our families and the children all loved him. He is the best Santa we have had and will want to book him again 🙂
Kathy K, Burlington, WI

I am in love!

I am in love! He was fantastic and I think he is the best looking Santa you can find. Just perfect! I had 55 ladies at the party and they all think the same. We also think he has a fantastic costume. I will definitely hire this Santa many more times. Thank you, Santa.
Donna J, Glenview, IL

Best Santa around

We enjoyed this Santa at our company party. He took lots of pictures and was the best price on this platform. If we had to hire someone again for sure it would be this Santa. Thank you, Santa you were great!

Santa was great

Santa was great and accommodating for our office, as we asked for him to read a poem that one of the team members had written and he did it without hesitation.
Daniel S, Chicago, IL

Wonderful Christmas Cheer!

We greatly appreciated Santa’s participation in our Christmas Day Brunch. His interactions and posing suggestions during photos were particularly great! We received a lot of comments on the quality and authenticity of his wardrobe, as well. Thank you!
Ashley V, Lake Forest, IL

Santa Chicago was great

Looked the part and was very nice and kind. Our community loved Santa Gale! He was even kind of to stick around a little longer than scheduled to get the last few kids in line and to take photos with our sponsors. Thanks again..
Dan M, Valparaiso, IN

I am very satisfied

Real Bearded Macy’s Santa arrived on time to the party and was a big hit. He quickly got in contact with me when I booked and asked what would I like him to do for my family. he did great greeting the children and taking pictures with the family. If my younger cousins were having doubts in Santa they don’t anymore. I am very satisfied and would recommend Real Bearded Macy’s Santa to all my friends. Hopefully, he is available next year.
Seamus S, Chicago, IL

Everyone loved him

Well, what can I say apart from amazing! I booked Santa for my boy age 10 and my parents that were visiting from England, everyone loved him, it was a total surprise for them. They were all crying with joy. And Santa was amazing singing with us taking photos giving out presents, and telling my boy stories 35 minutes of total joy in the family. We will never forget thank you.

This is the second year we’ve had Santa Chicago join us for our wildly popular Christmas Day Brunch, to rave reviews! Guests especially liked that he suggests fun photo ops and poses.
Ashley V, Deer Path Inn, Lake Forest, IL

Still talking about him!

We had Santa deliver cheer and gifts to employees at 2 locations. All were stunned and the next day are still talking about how wonderful he was and how he made them feel appreciated and special. Was a great morale booster. Thank you sooooo much!!! From the staff… “Santa was Amazing and it put a huge smile on our team’s face.”, “This was the best we all thank you so much for having Santa Claus Making our day. And taking his time to make us feel special.”

Santa was very professional

Christmas Housewarming Open House Santa Chicago added the perfect touch to our Christmas housewarming open house celebration. Santa was very professional and provided a great experience for all guests, both children, and adults. Good communication leading up to the event as well.

Santa Lives!

Santa comes through, even in the heat of summer! We were hosting a 4th of July party at the lake with this year’s theme being a Christmas party. The weather “cooperated” by being in the mid-90s, but Santa still made his appearance and never skipped a beat. A true professional and was one of the highlights of the night. If you are counting on Santa being at your event, you can’t do better than Santa Chicago!
Jeff M, Lake Villa, IL

Great experience

Top-Notch Santa…. Did a great job with my 2-year-old son. It was a great experience all the way around.
Paul K, Norridge, IL

Best Santa Ever!!

Great appearance and believable…
JJudy S, Barrington, IL


That’s was our experience last night. Santa Arrived on time, took photos, sang a song, told a story, and passed out gifts. This Santa added that magical feeling.
Ernesto A, Chicago, IL

I was very happy

I was very happy with Santa Chicago, with all the crying from the new one and two olds who have not encountered Santa before, Santa kept his cool. The older children have gone thru the terrible twos behaved appropriately and made the family Christmas Party a lot of fun. Children’s photos, as well as family photos with Santa, were a hit and even older family members had the occasion to sit with Santa for a photo opportunity. I will want Santa Chicago back again.
CEmil M, Elmhurst, IL


The perfect Santa made for the perfect surprise!
Sam P, Chicago, IL

Great Job

Santa Chicago was on time, professional, and very much looked the part. We would work with him again.
Dawn Z, Hampshire, IL

Authentic Santa!

Santa Chicago was a great addition to my holiday-themed photo shoots. Very authentic and personable. Would definitely use him again & recommend him to others who are looking for a Santa for their events. Thank you!
Birth & Beyond by Kendall, Kendall L, Hartland, WI

Very Nice Santa!!

Right on time, Santa arrived and helped create a joyful Christmas atmosphere. He sat with each child and discussed their Christmas wishes. Thanks for making our celebration even more special!
Maureen L, Chicago, IL

He did a great job!

Santa did a great job! Was kind and pleasant with the kids and took time to sit and chat with each one.
Isabelle W, Arlington Heights, IL

Great Santa!

This Santa really looked the part. His outfit, boots, and beard looked realistic and captured the magic. All my party guests mentioned how great and real he looked. I wish we had a little more interaction with the kids asking them questions and getting them engaged in conversation, but we had a young shy crowd so that may have made it difficult to interact. I wish I had pre-planned more activities after visits with kids to fill the session. He did a great job jumping in and singing with the kids to help fill our time. Overall, it was a great experience and he did an amazing job. I would recommend his Santa services to others and use him again for future events. Thanks!
Jessica R, Volo, IL

Great Job !!
