Ho! Ho! Ho! - The Great SantaCon Pub Crawl is On!

December 05, 2016

On Saturday, December 10th, an army of Santas will descend, flash-mob style, on Union Square for the 2016 SantaCon pub crawl. Also known as “Santarchy,” “Santa Rampage,” and “Santa Crawl,” the festive event is also an annual fund-raiser for local charities. SantaCon-ers will be crawling a variety of local watering holes, and provided with caroling songbooks for singing and laughing all the way.

SantaCon’s organizers claim the more the merrier, so if this event sounds like your cup of (spiked) eggnog, check out some of the basic rules and regulations that all crawlers are advised to follow here:, and a list of dos and don’ts to help keep everyone jolly.

If you’re looking for a great time and a good cause this Christmas, go to the official SantaCon Facebook page for more information on getting involved here: You’ve still got time to sign up, and it’s free with a new and unwrapped toy donation for the San Francisco Fire Department’s toy drive.
