We are lucky to have a diversity of Santas in our area, but it's difficult to guarantee where you can see a Black Santa (often Fairyland and the Tilden Park Carousel hire African American men as Santa Claus, but not always). That's why Baron Davis's Black Santa Company is such great news for Oakland and surrounding areas. There will be a reliable Black Santa for children to visit posted at Jack London Square this Christmas season.
What is Black Santa Winter Wonderland?
The cute, illustrated representation of Black Santa seen above will be available on t-shirts and other merchandise. That's the primary offering of the brand, co-founded by former Golden State Warrior Baron Davis.
Black Santa Winter Wonderland is the name for the pop-up shop coming to Jack London Square from Black Friday, November 23, through Christmas Eve, December 24.
In addition to Black Santa products, the pop-up destination will feature Mrs. C’s Sweet Shop (treats), workshops including ornament-making and, of course, meet-and-greets with Black Santa and Mrs. Claus. Guarantee your family the cutest Black Santa photos!
More Black Santa photo opportunities will appear on our calendar as they become available, as well as special events such as kids’ yoga and dance parties.
The Black Santa Winter Wonderland will be located at 54 Washington St. in Jack London Square. The retail show will be open Wednesdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. Meet Black Santa and/or Mrs. C, from 12–6 p.m. Fridays through Sundays (hours are subject to change.)
