We provide a simulated walk through a Christmas lighted forest where you can view 99 scaled down scenes of Mother Goose rhyme characters, fairy tale characters, and family movie characters, some of which are animated. In addition there are two huge train displays, and a Victorian Village and Main Street. At the end of your walk, you reach the North Pole and can visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus! Although the venue is free to all, you’re encouraged to bring canned food or personal hygiene items for the less fortunate.
In 2015, we had 41,112 visitors and through their generosity, we were able to donate 30,678 non-perishable food items to Fish of Albany’s pantry for local distribution. We are a non-profit corporation, not affiliated with any church, civic, or social organization. The sole purpose of Christmas Storybook Land is to give people of all ages something to enjoy during the Christmas season that is FREE and non-commercial. Christmas Storybook Land is a year-long project. We survive with the help of hundreds of regional volunteers. If you are interested in helping, see our volunteer opportunities or contact us to volunteer.
