More Information

November 26 - December 16

The Elf on the Shelf® is a Christmas tradition beloved by many. These magical Scout Elves help Santa manage his nice list by taking note of a family’s Christmas adventures and reporting back to Santa at the North Pole each night. By morning, the Scout Elf returns to its family and perches in a new spot, waiting for someone to find them.

For the second time, Santa’s Scout Elves will be landing in Downtown Roanoke! Come on a fun scavenger hunt and find the 18 Scout Elves hiding in downtown stores. Find them all and be entered for a chance to win $1,000!

Pick up a Passport at any of the participating Scout Elf locations. Get a stamp from the business when you find a Scout Elf. Once your passport has all of its stamps (meaning you’ve found all the Scout Elves), return it in the drop box located in the official elf adoption center - Mast General Store (401 S Jefferson Street) and you’ll be entered to win $1,000. The winner will be notified on December 17th.  Contest rules can be found on the Downtown Roanoke, Inc. website. 

Share your elf adventures with #RoanokeElves!
