Santa Doug - Real Beard Santa Claus in Ann Arbor, Detroit MI

Santa Doug is a real bearded Santa from Michigan. He has been a professional Santa for five years. He is a retired middle school English grammar teacher and great with children of all ages. It was his love of children that drew him into teaching and so inspired him to become a Santa Claus. Santa Claus Doug is warm and friendly to everyone he meet while portraying Santa and throughout the year. Some of his favorite moments as Santa are those times when children recognize him as Santa Claus even when he is not at an event or in his Santa Claus suit. Although the reindeer are at times a little picky about what they’ll eat; Santa Claus Doug has never met a cookie he didn’t like! His goal is to brighten Christmas and Holiday Events, and bring good cheer to Private Parties, Office Parties, and Corporate and Community Events. He will star in photo shoots, television commercials and even attend Christmas in July events. Santa Doug is all in for meet and greets, sing along, and he loves a good reading of “The Night Before Christmas.”

Santa Doug is also a member in good standing with MAPS (Michigan Association of Professional Santas) and the IBRBS (International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santas). He attended the Charles W. Howard Santa Claus School in Midland, Michigan during the off-season in 2016 and 2017.
