HO! HO! HO! I am Santa Joe and live in Allegan, MI.  I am a real bearded Santa, and a graduate of the Charles W. Howard School for Santa's in Midland, Michigan.  The school has been around for about 87 years and has been teaching Santas from all over the world.  While at the school, I had the opportunity to visit my reindeer, ride the Polar Express, make toys in one of my many workshops and was happy to eat a lot of cookies and drink more than my fair share of hot chocolate. I have attended the Saint Nicholas Institute in Detroit Michigan, where I learned the history and evolution of the present-day Santa.

I am a member of several Professional Santa organizations, including,

IBRBS-International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santas; M.A.P.S.-Michigan Association of Professional Santas; FORBS-Fraternal Order of Real Bearded Santas; Santa America Organization and the Wings of Hope. I am fully vaccinated and am looking forward to the 2024 Christmas season.

I'm willing to travel throughout the country to spread the Christmas Spirit to children and adults alike.  There is no better feeling than to look in a child's eyes and see the excitement and love the Christmas season brings. I provide an unforgettable and delightful experience for your family or event.  

"As long as we know in our hearts what Christmas ought to be, Christmas is" -Eric Sevareid

I am so thankful to have Santa Joe as the official Downtown Allegan Santa Claus at our weekly Festive Fridays events in December. He elevates the event in a way that can only be described as magical. Any holiday-themed event throughout the year would be lucky to have him as the Man with the Bag. Santa Joe the real deal!

Do not hesitate to have Santa Joe come to your event! He came on XMAS eve to our house and not sure who was more excited the kids or the adults. He was very entertaining and it was one of the best christmas experience we ever had. Thank you so much Santa Joe!!!!

Santa Joe joined us for the South Haven Holiday in the Park event the day after Thanksgiving.  He was without exaggeration, perfection!  He was great to work with before the event, during and after as well.  Communication was great, he was professional, friendly, and absolutely amazing with the kids!  We are still hearing raves at how fantastic he was! We're pretty sure he's the real Santa : )  Can't wait for him to join us again next year!  Thank you Santa Joe!

I am so happy to have been able to have Santa Joe and Mrs. Clause come to the J.C. Wheeler Public Library for a Toddler Time event. He brought his own books and one of them was even a 'magic' book. He had imaginative stories about the North Pole and Santa's life and just made things very special for the kids! I am excited to have him back again next year!

🎅Santa Joe,I would like to express my sincere gratitude for joining us at our Coldwell Banker Schmidt Christmas 🎄Event in East Grand Rapids. Your presence made the event a huge success, and our clients and their families were so excited to interact with you. You were undoubtedly the star ⭐of the night, and we received numerous compliments from our clients who couldn't praise you enough. Thank you for your excellent work and professionalism throughout the event. We are already looking forward to working with you again next year. Great job, Santa!🎅

Santa Joe was AMAZZING to work with. We had him attend an employee appreication event, not only did our staff and their children love him, but Santa took the time to visit with our residents in our Assisted Living facility and they just love it! His communication from the day we booked him to the day of the event was excellent. I'm looking forward to having him back next year. Thank you Santa Joe!

Joe was Santa for the lobby of our school play. He is SUPER great to work with! Such a kind man! He really made every child feel special. Even some of the adults got in for a picture!

I saw on Facebook that I had missed Santa at our local library. I posted on their page how disappointed I was that I hadn't known about the event. He is one of my special needs granddaughters favorite!!! Santa saw the post and reached out to me. He suggested coming to our home to make it more memorable for her. The very next day he was at our house with treats and kindness for her and her friends! Santa Joe has no idea what his kind gesture meant to her. BEST SANTA EVER ❤️💚❤️💚

Thank you for your review. I had a great time at your family event.

I cannot say enough about our Santa Joe experience! We first met in the aisles of Sam's Club when my children spotted him from across the store. We then had Santa Joe to our home with other families - he brought so many wonderful things, including naughty/nice cards, a special book, and gifts. It could not have been a better experience for everyone, young and old. Highly, HIGHLY recommend!
