Hilton Richmond Downtown is reimagining their famous Tea with Santa tradition will continue this year but as a “virtual” experience for families to enjoy from the comforts of their homes.
Perhaps one of Richmond’s oldest and most beloved holiday events, Tea with Santa, began over 84 years ago on the 7th floor of the historic Miller & Rhoads department store. Today, the former department store building is now occupied by the Hilton Richmond Downtown. Since 2010, the hotel has partnered with the Children’s Museum of Richmond to bring the event back to life each year.
“Hosting Tea with Santa each year is something our hotel has taken great pride in,” said John Cario, General Manager of the Hilton Richmond Downtown “After the many challenges of this year, finding a way to continue this holiday tradition became extremely important to us. After receiving overwhelming support and encouragement from past attendees we decided to make this year a virtual event. We will use a bit of Santa’s magic to bring the event into homes of our families and friends.”
The virtual Tea with Santa will include storytelling and singalongs with Santa and his elf, and a special visit from the Snow Queen. The filmed event will take place December 12th, 13th, 19th, and 20th beginning promptly at 2:00pm. Tickets will be available for purchase on November 23, 2020 via this website.
