Now, the Congress is both a professional forum and social meeting place for real Santas from all over the world, attracting thousands of people coming to see Santas celebrate "Christmas in July" in Copenhagen.

The World Santa Claus Congress has taken place in Bakken, the world's oldest amusement park, since 1957. It was created by Professor Tribini, Bakken's legendary entertainer, who did not believe that Christmas should only happen once a year. And as the Santas are usually very busy in December, the professor created "Christmas in July".
