The Princeton Shopping Center will host its annual Cookies with Santa Event on Saturday, December 7 from 12-2PM. This family-friendly event includes cookie decorating courtesy of LiLLiPiES, holiday craft station, photo ops with Santa, holiday selfie station, live performances from Princeton High School’s a capella groups, holiday treats, and enter a raffle to win four tickets to A Christmas Carol at McCarter Theatre Center. 

Attendees are asked to meet in front of Marlowe’s Jewelry at 12 noon sharp to greet Santa’s fire truck and then parade with Santa for a sing-a-long through the shopping center spreading holiday cheer.

The parade will end at Santa’s pop-up shop in the courtyard between Surf Taco and Orvis for the event activities. Attendees have the option of bringing an unwrapped toy to be donated to HomeFront.

Cookies with Santa is free and open to everyone, and is rain or shine. This is a popular event — please pre-register via (search “Cookies with Santa in Princeton”) to help plan for attendance. 

Princeton Shopping Center is located at 301 North Harrison Street, Princeton, New Jersey. Parking is free. 

For more than 60 years, Princeton Shopping Center has been a true community gathering place. Its unique design boasts 40 local and national retailers, and a two-acre landscaped courtyard that is warmly referred to by community members as “the living room of Princeton.” Anchored by local and family owned McCaffrey’s Market, the center not only serves as a staple for goods, but is jointly used as a neighborhood events space. Partnering with local organizations, the center remains a vibrant meeting place for residents and visitors throughout the year.
