Any attendee of Discover Santa 2016 may apply to appear in the “Meet the Kringles” Fashion Show on Saturday Night, July 9. We are looking at upwards of forty individual Santas and Mrs. Claus selected by the Fashion Show Committee which is being coordiinated by the Hoosier Santas.

Because of the expected high number of Santas and Mrs. Claus, plus some of our vendors, wishing to participate and showcase their wardrobe during Discover Santa 2016, the Hoosier Santas are also sponsoring two additional fashion shows on Wednesday July 6, mid-day at the Stone Castle Hotel, and a 6 pm Dinner Show at the Golden Corral. Yes, there will be three fashion shows in all.

Applications will be reviewed for inclusion in one of these Fashion Show events by the Committee. An applicant can only fill one position among all three events, regardless of the number of wardrobe applications submitted (up to three) and each applicant agrees to model the outfit the committee selects. Applications will be judged by the committee to fill the 100 positions collectively available among the three shows being presented during Discover Santa 2016.

All applications submitted will be considered for all shows with a single application (unless applicant chooses otherwise). Applicants must be available to model their attire during the time(s) of the show(s) for which they submitted. Your application is used to select participants in their chosen Fashion Show, not for winners a Fashion Contest. Time and space is limited for all shows.


Meet the Kringles is the Main Showcase Fashion Show of Discover Santa 2016, and will be presented on July 9th from 6:30 to 8:00 pm as a prelude to the Red Suit Gala Dinner and Show at the Chateau on the Lake.  All registered Discover Santa 2016 participants have pre-paid admission to this Fashion Show, the Dinner and Show.

Many vendor products will be highlighted during this show. This show is the Official Fashion Show of Discover Santa 2016 and the finest of the wardrobe submissions will be chosen to fill positions for this show. The Hoosier Santas’ Fashion Show Committee will help with the show preparation and model selections.


The first Fashion Show of the week will be hosted and presented by the Hoosier Santas on July 6th from 11am to 2pm at the Stone Castle Hotel

The Hoosier Santas invite you to “Show Your Stuff” at our special event on the evening of July 6th at 6:00pm at the Golden Corral. There is a $19.95 admission charge for every attendee and participant (includes the buffet, drinks, taxes, tip, and the fashion show).

The first casting APPLICATIONS ARE DUE BY April 1, 2016. Each attire submission requires one application form and at least one photo of your outfit. Multiple photos are suggested so the Fashion Show Committee can better review your apparel. An applicant can submit up to three sets of garments for review using three separate applications. After April 1st, we will have a second casting if sufficient spaces remain.
