World Santa Claus Congress

Christmas in july

Since 1957 the World Santa Claus Congress has been an annual event at Dyrehavsbakken "Bakken" - the world's oldest amusement park, located just north of Copenhagen.

Every summer a jolly group of Santas, Santa's wives and Santa's elves from all over the world gather at Dyrehavsbakken to spread the christmas joy and socialize with other santas from near and far. 

A social event

The World Santa Claus Congress (WSCC) at Bakken is both a professional forum and social meeting place for real Santas from all around the world. The Santas from around the world have the opportunity to meet and exchange experiences and to network. The World Santa Claus Congress also provides a chance to promote the Santa Claus trade and show how Christmas cheer is done in different parts of the world.

Participation is free, so sign-up today!

An old tradition

The World Santa Claus Congress emerged in the middle of the last century by Professor Tribini. He was a legendary entertainer at Bakken and did not believe that Christmas should only happen once a year. Since the Santas are usually very busy in December, the professor created 'Christmas in July" - an event, which now attracts hundreds of Santas' female and male Christmas pixxies, elves and many thousands of spectators. 

The World Santa Claus Congress is organized by Dyrehavsbakken (Bakken) in close partnership with the Danish Santa Claus Guild. 
The Congress is finding place at Bakken, the world's oldest and Denmark's most amusing amusement park.

"Alletiders Julemand" - Denmark

”I have been a Santa for 5 years and have participated in the World Santa Claus Congress for 5 years. I participate in the congress because of the social network and to meet national and international peers. My favorite part is the excursion to Copenhagen with the canal tour excursion and the parade in the main street. WSCC is unique, there is nothing like this elsewhere. The atmosphere around the amusement park is fabulous and we have the opportunity to talk with all the happy guests.”

”I have been a Santa for 18 years and have been to the WSCC for two years now. I have many international contacts with other Santas, and the WSCC makes it possible for me to meet them and get some new Santa-friends. WSCC is an open-minded congress where you have the opportunity to learn more about other Christmas cultures from around the world."
