Christmas Activities In Fremont

2021 Christmas Holiday Season

Visit With Santa 

Santa Claus will visit the Fremont Community on Saturday, December 4th, 2021 from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Santa and Mrs. Claus and Sleigh will be at the parking lot at the Fremont High School football field to wave to and greet the children and receive Christmas letters with their wish lists. 

The Fremont Legion Auxiliary will serve cookies and a drink and the Fremont Public Library will have a book/craft for all the children attending. Mark your calendars to attend this popular event during the Christmas season. 

Visitors to Santa will enter through the Fremont High School entrance on the west side of the High School and drive behind the School to the Football field area and stay in their cars to wave to Santa, drop off their letters, and receive a bag with a candy cane, cookie, book, and drink. 

Please bring along a non perishable food item for donation to the Fremont Community Food Bank this Holiday season. Horse pulled wagon rides may be available for those wanting to partake of this.

Annual Holiday Food Drive

The Chamber and Town of Fremont will again sponsor a Holiday Food Drive beginning on November 26th, 2020 running through December 10th, 2021 for the Fremont Community Food Bank at the Fremont Community Church.
