We like to think of the holiday season at HERSHEY’S CHOCOLATE WORLD as one big heartwarming hug. When you can make memories with scarf-clad HERSHEY’S Characters. Take photos by a house made of candy. Or shop for sweet stocking stuffers while sipping minty milkshakes or melted hot chocolates. So join us, enjoy some together time – because that’s the most heartwarming gift of all.

Our best tips to make the most of your holiday visit:

  1. Mark your calendar for festive events
    There’s no shortage things to do in Hershey during the holidays! Gather for photos with Santa, decorate ornaments and cookies with Mrs. Claus, board a holiday-themed trolley, and check out our annual HERSHEY’S Holiday Chocolate House. Considering an attraction? Be sure to book tickets online in advance, and consider a bundle for even bigger savings!

  2. Don't miss all things Grinch!
    The man in green is back and we swear his heart has grown three sizes with all the love he’s spreading here at Chocolate World. Pose for photos with him in our Character Corner, snag some themed mugs and socks (among other gifts)…even snack on a Grinch cookie, milkshake and hot chocolate. And while HERSHEY’S KISSES Milk Chocolates with Grinch Foils may be the traditional flavor, let’s be real - they’ll be the cutest.things.ever in your candy bowl.
