The promotion takes place at over 35 businesses in Old Town.  All Santas are hidden in the window displays and are viewable from the sidewalk.

 

How much does it cost?
This activity is free to participate!  No purchase is necessary.

 

How do I get started?
Visit the Downtown Visitor Information Center to pick up your Quest Card.  Then, discover Downtown as you visit each business to find the hidden Santa Claus figurine in their window.  When you find it, write down the name of the Santa on your Quest Card (look for the unique name of each Santa on their name tag).

 

Where do I submit my completed Quest Card?
After collecting the names of each hidden Santa figurine, submit your Quest Card at the Downtown Visitor Information Center (1 Old Town Square, Suite 107) in the Santas Quest mailbox.

How do I know if I’m selected as a winner?
To be eligible to win, you must complete the entire Quest Card by finding the names of all hidden Santas.  Completed Quest Cards will be drawn at random on Friday, December 2 and Monday, December 19.  Winners will be published on DowntownFortCollins.com and will be contacted directly via email with instructions for claiming their prize.

How do I get downtown?  Where is parking available?

Getting downtown is easy!

For visitors traveling on I-25, take exit 268 for Prospect Road.  Head west for about four miles, then turn right on S. College Ave.  Continue for about one mile.

Downtown offers a variety of parking options, including on-street, three parking structures, and five surface lots. In general, the on-street parking in the core of downtown has 2-hour time limits, while the parking around the periphery of downtown has free, open, all-day parking.  On the map, the 2-hour parking is shown in the light blue.

Additional Questions?
Please contact the Downtown Development Authority, DDA, at info@downtownfortcollins.com or (970) 484-6500. Full terms and conditions here.

Created in 1981, the Downtown Development Authority uses tax increment financing to stimulate redevelopment in the central business district.  The Authority focuses on projects that have benefit for the entire community.  In 2020, the DDA developed a Business Marketing Communications Program, this program continues and evolves traditional promotions that add vibrancy and vitality to the downtown district.
