AutismBC Goes to Quiet Time with Santa at Westshore Town Centre (Victoria)

December 3, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Join us for our AutismBC GOES to Quiet Time with Santa, a heartwarming and sensory-friendly visit with Santa. This exclusive event is designed for families who appreciate a calm and welcoming atmosphere for their children, especially those with sensory sensitivities.

Christmas is a busy time of the year. The malls are crowded with people taking pictures with Santa, buying gifts, and running around. The sights, sounds, and smells of malls can be overwhelming for many. Westshore Town Centre understands that this can be hard for autistic children and their families and wants our community to also join in on the holiday festivities. 

This event will provide a comfortable, sensory-friendly environment for ten families to enjoy their time with Santa in a quieter setting.

We have partnered with Westshore Town Centre this holiday season to bring our members to this event.
