Quincy & Tracey Vrecko are proud to announce their 7th annual Sensitive Santa event in Kelowna. Sensitive Santa brings the magical experience of meeting Santa to a sensory-friendly environment for families living with loved ones on the Autism Spectrum. The Vreckos partner with Kelowna Actors Studio and Autism Okanagan to bring this special experience to the Okanagan.

With the Santa you all know and love, you can enjoy a magical meet and greet with him at the new location, 1111 Lawson Ave. This new location gives us the full North Pole village experience. The true feeling of the North Pole with Santa, Mrs. Claus and of course the elves! You are guaranteed to leave the event feeling the holiday spirit!

Sensitive Santa has been an important event to the Vrecko family as they know how difficult and at times unattainable for children living with sensory sensitivities to have a visit with Santa. The teamwork of Quincy and Tracey with Autism Okanagan and Kelowna Actors Studio has made the magical moments of meeting Santa available in an atmosphere that is sensory-friendly.
