2018 Holiday Events at Walden Galleria

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Snow, mistletoe, and of course, Santa!

At Walden Galleria, there are plenty of events to get you into the holiday spirit. Whether it’s shopping til’ you drop on Black Friday or bringing your pet in to get a picture on Santa’s lap, there is something for everyone! Below is list of the activities you can enjoy this holiday season at Walden Galleria.


1.Tree Lighting Ceremony

Friday, November 9th from 4pm-6pm on the lower level near Apple

Kick the season off with the grand reveal of our twenty-five-foot Christmas tree! It is the largest and tallest tree to be displayed in the Buffalo area’s only super-regional mall in over a decade! Santa will come out and turn on the tree with his magic powers while guests enjoy music, light refreshments, crafts, giveaways, and an ugly Christmas sweater contest! Santa will also be taking pictures in his big green chair!
