Pajama Christmas is the only time of the year when we're open to the public after dark. It's the only way to experience the magic of moonlight steam train rides. The glow from the locomotives' fire flickers across the ground and the occasional sparks from the smokestack swirl up into the air before burning out. Steam hangs in the air to take on the appearance of riding the train through the clouds.

Tickets are limited and had by advanced sales only so there won't be the usual crowds seen during the day. Making for a much more cozy and relaxed atmosphere.

Don your snuggliest pajamas and come to the farm after dark (6pm). Parking is in the lower parking lot lit by white Christmas lights hung in the trees. Enter at the front gate, park your car, and follow the lanterns to the Stone Bridge where you will check in and get your armbands, then head up the stairs up to Hillcrest Station.

Unlimited steam train rides through the redwood trees and across the farm in the crisp December night air with lights and displays. Fire bowls ablaze to warm yourself by while listening to live music. All-you-can-eat yummy cookies and a fun hot chocolate bar.  Hot food also available for purchase. Photos with Santa also available for purchase.

It's a night of family, friends, music, and holiday cheer with a touch of magic.


Santa makes an appearance to talk with the children (ages 1 to 100+). Santa's personal photographer will also be there for purchasing a photo with Santa.

All nights 6:00pm to 8:30pm











$20 a ticket (ages 2 and up)

Includes admission, parking, train rides, cookies, hot cocoa, live music, and more!!!


When you make a purchase your name will be added to the guest list for that night. You will receive an order number for that purchase so print that page or note the order number,  and are good to go. If you got the 4 digit order number, your order went through. You may receive a confirmation email also--but no worries if you don't! The order will say "Pending" until the event date. On the date you have reserved tickets, simply show up at the Hillcrest Main Gate between 6 PM and 8PM where an attendant will help you find a place to park.

After parking, follow the hanging lanterns to the Stone Bridge.  Please check in at the stone bridge to receive your wristbands for the night.  We look forward to seeing you there!



This is a rain-or-shine event. A couple of times we have tried to cancel it due to heavy rain, but everyone came out anyway and had a grand time.
