SantaCon 2017: City-Wide Santa Pub Crawl | SF

Saturday, December 9, 2017 - All Day | Cost: FREE
Union Square Park | Geary and Powell, San Francisco, CA

“SantaCon” or “Santarchy” is San Francisco’s annual city-wide Santas-only pub crawl happening on Saturday, December 9, 2017.

This flash mob-type event brings together hundreds of slightly sober people dressed in Santa costumes parading around the city, visiting landmarks drinking at bars, and causing general mayhem.

And just so you know, wearing a santa hat isn’t enough… get yourself a full-on Santa suit.

SantaCon 2017
Saturday, December 9, 2017 | Noon
Meet at Union Square Park, San Francisco
FREE – Rain or Shine

Please bring one new, unwrapped toy that can be donated to the Toys for Tots effort by the United States Marine Corps.

The main rules:

  1. Wear a full-on Santa Claus suit
  2. Bring a new, unwrapped toy for SFFD Toy Drive
  3. Santas, remember the 5 F’s:
    • Don’t F with police
    • Don’t F with kids
    • Don’t F with security
    • Don’t F with bartenders
    • Don’t F with Santa

Want to sing along? Here’s the Santa Songbook.

Also, there’s a more organized SantaCon pub crawl that’s happening as well. Watch out for updates on their page.

Please note, not all bars welcome Santas so be respectful and keep an eye out for the “No Santas” sign at the door. Everything is subject to change – Dates, times, locations… check SF SantaCon Facebook before heading out.
