What in the Schell is
Schellville!?

Learn More

No one loves Christmas more than we do at Schell Brothers.

In 2017 we dreamt of a magical Christmas village called Schellville. In our first season we delighted our Coastal Delaware community with 9 miniature houses decorated beautifully with plenty of activities, and Christmas trees. Since then, Schellville has grown as we have added train rides, snow zones, additional houses and plenty of fun to delight our local families! In 2021, Schell Brothers brought their magical Christmas village dreams to life. Welcoming more than 104,000 guests, serving more than 12,000 cups of hot cocoa, and raising more than $84,000 to help end childhood hunger, Schellville was much more than a village behind Tanger Outlets it was a Christmas miracle for many.

With its great success in 2021, Schell Brothers in partnership with Tanger Outlets is excited to announce the expansion of Schellville for the 2022 season. The expansion will include tree houses, an expanded snow zone, an amazing band line-up every night, a sledding hill, game room, a new train, and much more!


Free Enchanted Winter Celebration

Schellville is no longer just a "village lane," but instead, you and your family can enjoy an Enchanted Winter Celebration, providing hours of FREE fun and entertainment for kids of all ages. Open in November of 2022.


Free Snow Zone | Free maze of lights | beer garden

Take a break in the Beer Garden sponsored by Revelation Craft Brewing Co. featuring our very own Tipsy Blokes Brews and give Kudos to help power the magical "Believe-O-Meter." Take a stroll and explore Frosty's Food Trucks that have been relocated to the Magical Maze and expanded to include Dewey Beer Co., Dogfish Head Brewery, and unique snack shacks.


SIT WITH SANTA AND MRS. CLAUS FOR FREE

Don't forget to stop by and tell the big guy, Santa what is on your Christmas list. Have the kids bring their letters to Santa. In fact, watch their wishes magically soar from the mailbox to Mrs. Claus who promises to show Santa the kids letters each evening. *Santa goes back to the North Pole after Dec 23rd.

Exploration with the Family

Families can explore a magical Christmas Village filled with 18 miniature houses full of decorations, toys, and activities. Or take a ride on one of our two Schellville Express trains, and Let the Good Times Roll on our 100 X 120-foot roller rink and skate path.
