Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park

Chandler, AZ  85226
There’s a lot that goes into transitioning Chandler’s Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park into an awe-inspiring, shimmering winter wonderland reminiscent of the North Pole, and it all must be done by Black Friday, which, this year, falls on Friday, Nov. 24. Starting that weekend and continuing every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through Christmas, Winter Wondefest will welcome good boys and girls and their families who come to visit Santa’s House and Toy Workshop, pick out a perfect Christmas tree, burn off some sugar at onsite obstacle courses and bounce houses and take a spin on a 6-story-high ferris wheel overlooking all the action.

Visitors can take a turn on a carousel or a zipline or tour the festive event space on Santa’s Train (all proceeds from train ticket sales will benefit Phoenix Children’s Hospital), and they can also start checking off their own shopping lists while perusing dozens of vendor booths provided courtesy of Front Porch Pickins Vintage & Handmade Market, known throughout the state and region for its handcrafted items, antiques and other vintage and one-of-a-kind finds.

From Gingerbread Land and S’Mores Land to the Ice Princess Castle, Winter Wonderfest promises plenty of festive, holiday fun for folks of all ages. Photos with the big guy himself will be available and guests will find plenty of food vendors onsite serving up holiday sweets, snacks and surprises. Tickets are $15 per person at the gate. Advance sales and family packages are available online at a discounted rate. For more about Winter Wonderfest, visit
