At Aventura Mall, the holiday season is more than just a time of the year – it’s a magical experience waiting to be shared with family and friends. As one of South Florida’s most cherished holiday destinations, Aventura Mall becomes filled with the magic of holiday wonder, offering a plethora of festive activities and exclusive experiences to create lasting memories.
Experience The Holiday Village
For the first time, Aventura Mall has unveiled the Holiday Village, enchanting and delighting guests and bringing the spirit of the season to everyone. The Holiday Village, which will run until January 7, is a bespoke shopping experience, offering a curated collection of local craftsmanship, delectable treats, holiday gifts, and heartwarming festivities.
The Holiday Cottages that make up the delightful village are occupied by vendors including Two2Guys, Ralph’s Cigars, Ofner Americas Panettone, Läderach Chocolatier Suisse, Deck the Halls, HOLYSHAKES, and Peppermint Park.
What’s more, the highlight of this magical setting is the opportunity to meet the jolliest of all personalities-Santa himself. Children and adults alike are invited to share their wishes, laughter, and joy with Santa, capturing cherished moments and spreading the magic of the season.
Santa welcomes families, including pets, for meet-and-greets filled with joy and wonder. Capture your own complimentary photos Wednesday through Friday, 3 – 8 p.m., Saturday 12 – 8 p.m. and Sunday 12 – 7 p.m.
The Aventura Train Station
The Aventura Train Station is the largest and grandest model train station in Florida, and it’s straight-up magical. This year’s Aventura Train features several new elements, including ten carnival-themed additions. The 18-by-30-foot display spans over 100 scale miles of track and features more than 500 figurines, over a dozen animated accessories, a working drawbridge, a party yacht, towns with lighted buildings, and more. Families are encouraged to experience the magic in person and share their joy by tagging @AventuraMall in their Aventura Train Station videos and photos!
Holiday Favorites and Instagrammable Moments
In addition to the Holiday Village, Aventura Mall is proud to host other holiday-inspired unique experiences throughout the mall for the whole family.
Capture precious moments in Santa’s whimsical red and gold sleigh, surrounded by frosted, illuminated Christmas trees, a cheerful red-nosed reindeer, and Santa’s Mailbox, where children are encouraged to deposit their heartfelt letters. This delightful installation awaits you on the Upper Level, creating a magical backdrop in front of Zara.
Throughout the shopping center, discover Santa’s Topiary Reindeer, charmingly seated on lacquered red benches in playful and engaging poses. These festive reindeer serve as perfect photo opportunities, adding an extra touch of joy to your holiday memories.
Season of Giving
As you indulge in your holiday shopping, take advantage of Aventura Mall’s Gift Wrap Station on the Lower Level, adjacent to the Concierge. Select from a curated collection of simple and whimsical designs, bows, accessories, and cards to adorn your gifts. Gift wrapping services start at $5 per gift, with all proceeds benefiting Voices for Children Foundation, Inc. This charitable initiative supports the organization’s mission to provide every child in the child welfare system with a Guardian ad Litem, offering them a voice in court.
Discover Dior Garden of Dreams
Dream in Dior this holiday season. Open through January 7th, exclusively at Aventura Mall, the Dior Garden of Dreams holiday pop-up brings the magic of the Tuileries Garden to Miami and South Florida’s premier shopping destination.
Evoking the holiday campaign starring Anya Taylor-Joy by Benoît Delhomme and the golden holiday motif created for Dior by Italian artist Pietro Ruffo, the Dior Garden of Dreams transports guests on a fantastical journey through a snow-dusted, enchanted garden.
Upon entering, guests find themselves in an olfactory maze of magical woods and are guided by an exclusive virtual experience to re-discover the iconic Dior fragrances: J’adore, Miss Dior, Sauvage, and Gris Dior.
The experience continues in an immersive room, where guests enter a universe of sparkling gold. The endless reflections of the gilded foliage transform these mirrors into the perfect frame for a unique photo experience.
