SantaCon 2020: City-Wide Santa Pub Crawl | SF

Saturday, December 12, 2020 - All Day | Cost: FREE
Union Square Park | Geary and Powell, San Francisco, CA


“SantaCon” is San Francisco’s annual city-wide Santas-only pub crawl happening on Saturday, December 12, 2020.

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 2020
Saturday, December 12, 2020 | Noon
Meet at Union Square Park, San Francisco
FREE – Rain or Shine

Please bring one new, unwrapped toy that can be donated to the San Francisco Fire Department. Santa Tom will be at Post St., Union Square to collect your toys.

The Main Rules:

> Wear a full-on Santa Claus suit

> Bring a new, unwrapped toy for SFFD Toy Drive

> Santas, remember the 5 Fs:

  • 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. From 1 pm on, the central meeting spot for Santas is either Union Square or OMG bar at 43 6th Street San Francisco.

Meet up friends, make new friends and start your bar crawls from OMG. Here’s a tip: there’s no cover at OMG.

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