2019 Breakfast with Santa at the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge Hall
Updated November 13, 2019
It’s that that magical time of year again. Santa and his helpers are getting ready for Christmas; making toys in the North Pole.
But before he heads out to deliver gifts and good cheer to children around the world, Santa and his elves makes a stop in Davis for a quick bite to eat. At the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge Hall, Santa will visit with the hundreds of children who come out for breakfast. He will also pose for some wonderful Holiday photographs. So be sure to bring and appetite and a camera.
This year’s event, sponsored as always by the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge, will be held on Saturday, December 14, 2019 at the Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second Street in downtown Davis.
The 2020 Breakfast with Santa marks the fourteenth year that the event has been hosted by the Davis Odd Fellows.
This year, the breakfast will be served in the Upper Hall of the Odd Fellows Lodge, and Santa and his elves will be on hand to greet all attendees, and to spend time with each child.

Seating is limited and tickets are not sold at the door. The ticket price is $11 per person, just like last year.

About the Davis Odd Fellows
“We continue a community tradition and are delighted to once again present this fun event for the children and families of Davis. But only 120 tickets are available for each seating and they go very fast,” said Breakfast with Santa Co-Chair Lea Rosenberg, now in her 14th year of chairing this event. In past years, tickets have sold out within two weeks.
Co-chairs of the event are Lea Rosenberg and Diana Schmiegel. Over 40 members of the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge volunteer to get the Lodge Hall ready and serve breakfast.
The Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) is a long-time fraternal order and service organization and traces its history in Yolo County back to 1870 when the Lodge was chartered. Currently, the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge has over 300 members – making it the largest Odd Fellows Lodge in California and North America. The Odd Fellows Hall, located in Downtown Davis, has been in its current location on 2nd Street since 1955. The Odd Fellows will continue to make donations to emancipated foster youth programs (helping foster children as they transition to adulthood) and to aid foster children from funds and donations generated from the Breakfast with Santa.
Major Sponsor of the event is The Stuart Foundation.
The Odd Fellows have arranged for a professional photographer to take photos of each child with Santa, however, adults are encouraged to bring their own cameras to record their child’s moments with Santa and the Elves.
