About Claus Festival

Bootah’s Claus Festival at the Pacific North Pole is the one and only Central Oregon winter Classic Festival celebrating farming and the Christmas holidays.

Bootah’s Pacific North Pole Claus Festival is a family adventure featuring artisan vendors, holiday theme foods, fun activities, miles of trails for timed and fun runs, hikes to the Pacific North Pole and Santa’s Workshop, entertainment and tiny tot Christmas fun, held over three weekends in Prineville, Oregon.  Celebrating farming and seasonal joy, the event is hosted at SunLife Farm and Ranch amidst its apiary, orchard grass and lavender fields. 

Who is Bootah?  Why, the original Queen Bee of SunLife Farm’s very first beehive colony, of course!  Claus Festival’s central gathering area is Bootahville, next to the Beeburbs, in a grove of Ponderosa pines nestled among the surrounding trails.  During the holidays, these walking paths beckon visitors to Claus House up Little Wonderland Trail; or for those interested in taking the trek up Wonderland Trail, visit Santa’s Workshop and the Post Office at the Pacific North Pole.

Claus Festival brings people together to celebrate farming and the Christmas spirit.  It’s an adventure for the whole family.

Why Claus Festival

We Can’t Wait to See You There!

Quotes from Jeffery Fox

Our festival also supports select non-profit organizations from the tri-county area that focus on food, shelter, health and youth programs. The support comes from key running event proceeds, tip token boot drops, donations for parking and the Bears and Bees daily runs for children.

Our event is held outdoors on SunLife Farm’s 160-acre property. Plenty of room to safely roam in accordance with today’s socially conscious settings.

SunLife Farm’s Bootahville and surrounding Beeburbs in the apiary are the perfect fit for Claus Festival. Bees play an intricate role in our local farming environments. Amongst our artisan vendors, beekeepers from Central Oregon will present their honey and other products.

Claus Festival is a celebration – end of year is the perfect time to celebrate the high desert central Oregon farming community and many holiday traditions.”

Claus Festival features a unique surprise for attendees and our sponsors.  Visitors can rely on their mobile phones to interact at the event or connect in the future with event sponsors, artisan vendors and area farms. Augmented reality through Zappar provides year-round access and Claus Festival fun.

Keeping with the spirit of the holidays, giving is a theme we will promote to support our local charities that work tirelessly all year to provide community support to those in need.
