Local children will be able to visit Santa in his grotto at Moss Bank Park on December 11 and 12.
Visitors to the park will be able to board the Santa Express miniature railway for a ride to visit Santa as he finishes making presents in his Toyland workshop.
Once the train has returned to the station, children can enjoy the rides on the fairground and join in making winter bird feeders and Christmas cards.
Meanwhile, parents can sample traditional treats such as free mince pies, hot chestnuts and refreshments, while entertainment will be provided by street artists and live Christmas carols from a brass trio.
The event has been organised by Bolton Council in conjunction with the Moss Bank Park Model Engineering Society and will be open from noon until 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday. A charge of £4 will apply for the train journey with 1 accompanying adult riding free.
