We are thrilled to welcome you to South Cross Homestead for your Christmas Hallmark Experience! To ensure a smooth and magical visit, here’s a guide to the flow of your festive day:


Please arrive 15 minutes early to maximize our time, and to ensure a relaxed start. It also allows for any last-minute adjustments and helps the kids get comfortable! Upon arrival, you’ll find signs directing you to designated parking areas. For everyone’s safety, we kindly ask you to keep your speed extremely slow, as there will be many people enjoying the grounds. If you encounter any parking challenges, our friendly Elf “Chrissy” is just a quick phone call away at 705-931-0192 and will be happy to assist. *PETS: they are absolutely welcome, but kindly ensure they’re kept on a leash throughout the session. For the safety and consideration of all involved, pets won’t be permitted inside any buildings.
