Since its opening in 1929, Shaker Square has been a place to meet and share experiences,  together. There is always something happening in the Square inviting you to gather, engage,  and enjoy the spirit of community!

Join us in Shaker Square’s public space to celebrate the holidays. Get a family photo with Santa, create fun crafts,  listen to live holiday music, and more!

Celebrate the spirit of the season with free and festive activities!

Say Cheese with Santa
