Christmas Storybook Land is a non-profit corporation, not affiliated with any church, civic, or social organization. Our mission is to provide people of all ages something to enjoy during the Christmas season that is FREE and non-commercial while partnering with other local nonprofit/charitable organizations to benefit the community. Christmas Storybook Land is a year-around project which survives with the help of hundreds of regional volunteers, business and private sponsors. We always welcome new participants who are interested in volunteering, fundraising, or becoming a sponsor.
Visitors experience an enormous indoor Christmas forest wonderland with over 120 scenes of characters from Mother Goose rhymes, children’s fairy tales and family movies, two elaborate model train displays, a Victorian Village and the North Pole with Santa TOO! Although admission is free, a donation of canned foods for Fish of Albany food pantry is gladly accepted.
