15th and Final Santa Secret Shop | Saturday, 02. December 2017

The Santa Secret Shop, sponsored by the Dodgeville Kiwanis, is located at the QLF Research Center, 3625 State Road 23 (beside House on the Rock Inn), Dodgeville. The dates for the event are December 2 and 9, 2017, from 8:30 AM to 1:30 PM. The purpose of this event is to give children (Pre-K through grade 6), in Dodgeville and the surrounding areas, an opportunity to purchase gifts for family and friends.

As families enter the Santa Shop, they must stop and register their child(ren). Volunteers will, then, accompany your child to the shop, located in the lower level of the building. NO parents are allowed in the area, where the children are shopping. It’s a secret and a special place for all the young ones!

Prices for all the gifts in the Santa Secret Shop range in price from $1.00 to $10.00, however, no child is turned away, due to his inability to pay. After each child has selected all the items needed, the gifts will be wrapped, tagged, and bagged by reindeer and elves. There will be treats and cookies for each child, as well as a special visitor or two.

Christmas vendors will be available for adults to browse (such as Avon, Pampered Chef, Stampin' Up, etc.) on the main level of the building. The Dodgeville United Methodist Women will have inexpensive lunch items available on both Saturdays, as well as homemade baked goods on December 2. The Dodger Food Locker will have baked goods for sale on December 9. There is something for everyone!

  • I just want to clarify that this event is for age 3 through grade 6. Parents aren't allowed in the gift area, for children, and it is extremely difficult for volunteer shoppers to hold an infant/toddler, hold a basket, etc. Some of our volunteers are middle and high school students.
