Santacon

  • Horseshoe casino

    1000 Broadway St, Cincinnati, OH (map)

    39.107071 -84.507675

  • Eat, drink, and BE SANTA!

    500+ Santas, 40+ venues, 12 hours, tons of fun! Mark your calendars

    SantaCon is an annual mass gathering of people dressed in Santa Claus costumes parading publicly on streets and in bars in cities around the world. The focus is on spontaneity and creativity, while having a good time and spreading cheer and goodwill.

    Sometimes known as Naughty Santas, Cheapsuit Santas, Santarchy, Santapalooza, and Santa Rampage, SantaCon incorporates elements of a flash mob in the context of cheerful bawdy and harmless behavior, the singing of naughty Christmas carols, and the giving of small gifts to strangers.

    Santas gather at the Jack Casino for the official picture and carol singing at about noon. Santas then receive text messages or tweets telling them what bar to go to. As the day goes on, the Santas pub crawl all over downtown. Last year over 1000 Santas participated. Its crazy holiday fun!

    Still waiting on official details from the Santacon organizers. Based on what I have gotten so far, I am assuming we are starting at The Rock Bar inside the casino at noon. After that, I think the Dirty Martinis are going to follow their own route of our favorite bars.

    Plan on being there for the first bar. It really is the best part when all of the Santas are together. As the day goes on, the people spread all around town and people go home. Its the first couple of hours that are the most fun!
