Taking an annual photo with Santa is a holiday tradition for many families. Cabela’s is keeping this tradition alive by offering contactless free photos with Santa.
The annual event is called Santa’s Wonderland, featuring free photos with Santa, a chance to mail a letter to Santa, and a free take home craft for kids (while supplies last).
Families who visit Santa receive a free 4×6 photo and a free digital download. Additional photo packages are available for purchase and print instantly at the store.

2020 Santa's Wonderland at Cabela's
For 2020, Cabela's is making these changes to its annual event to keep visitors safe:
- Free reservations are required in advance of your visit.
- Once families arrive, they will standby in a designated area with themed floor decals and signage to ensure a safe distance.
- This will be a contactless Santa experience with a “Magic Santa Shield,” a glare-free plexiglass barrier.
- A team of elves, known as Santa's Sanitation Squad, will clean all surfaces between visits.
- All team members in the store will wear face coverings.
The free photos with Santa will take place from November 7 through December 24.
Online reservations for Santa’s Wonderland are required and open on Monday, November 2. You can reserve your spot for free on Cabela's website.
The contactless visit with Santa includes a comprehensive approach to help ensure everyone’s safety throughout the event. Key elements include:
- Free Digital Reservations: Advance digital reservations are required for all guests and can be made online. Spots are limited to allow appropriate physical distancing and additional cleaning.
- Temperature Screening: All families and team members will complete temperature screening with a non-contact thermometer prior to entering Santa’s Wonderland.
- Magic Santa Shield: An innovative, glare-free clear protective barrier will be in place between Santa and families at all times to allow for a contactless experience. The shield is cleaned and sanitized between each visit.
- Physical Distancing: Families will standby in a designated area away from other shoppers with fun winter wonderland-themed floor decals and signage to ensure a safe distance.
- Santa’s Sanitation Squad: Santa’s team of elves will clean all surfaces between each visit and frequently ensure all safety measures are being implemented correctly.
- Face coverings: All team members throughout the store are required to wear face coverings. Customer requirements vary by location based on local public health guidelines.
