Shelter-in-Place Update – as of 12/10/20 – SantaCon.info is not currently promoting this event as part of Santa’s effort to discourage large in-person gatherings. This does not necessarily mean no event at all – it may be happening in a different form, with increased social distancing or it may even be virtual – but details will not be posted here and Websanta encourages you to stay home & stay safe. If you want to support a good cause and can’t find details of one supported by this SantaCon, please find a way to support your community at a local level.

THE 2020 EVENT WAS CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19. DO NOT GO TO ANY LARGE GATHERING UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE POSSIBLE SPREAD OF THIS VIRAL DISEASE. THE NEXT EVENT WILL BE HELD ON DECEMBER 11TH, 2021!!!!

“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.
