    Initial Announcement:

    All stops and specials to be posted the Thursday before the event

    Twisting the holiday paradigm until it screams for mercy is fun! Getting arrested is not. Santa Claus is friendly, respectful, and cooperative with police officers, security guards, bouncers, and store owners and doesn't break any laws! "Disorderly Conduct" is not a merit badge. Have your own special twisted fun, but don't fuck it up for the rest of us! Our santas do not destroy property, steal merchandise, or do harm to others. The authorities and local businesses usually take Santa's antics in the loving holiday spirit Santa intends, so be nice to them. Seriously - don’t argue. If they don’t want Santa there, Santa should move along.


    Who's in charge? SANTA

    Bring ID
    Bring cash for drinks (don't forget the tip!).
    Bring cell phone. Look for updates on this event page.
    Bring comfy shoes and warm clothes.
    Bring candy and crap for the patrons we meet.
    Bring a camera.
    Bring your loud ass and your singing pipes.
    Bring your Santarchy Carol Book 

    ************* more info ************************

    Slacks and a hat are *NOT* Christmas costume. An ugly sweater is DEFINITELY NOT Christmas costume. There are events for that stuff, but this event is not one of them. 

    This is very important. You will be a Santa in a huge group of
    Santas. Lines at some bars will be long. This is inevitable, though
    we have tried our best to mitigate this as much as possible. Do not bring outside drinks into any bar or restaurant. And remember that drinking alcohol on the streets is illegal. Santa does not have any special permits or permission to be exempt from these laws.

    Finally, by showing up, you acknowledge that being Santa can be risky business. You accept all consequences that could potentially arise from your personal participation and any participation of others which may affect you.

    LOVE this event! I have participated for the last four years. For newbies, please understand there are many costume choices other than Santa and Mrs. Claus. I have seen Gnomes, Elfs, Gingerbread Cookies, Christmas Trees, Ice Queens and one Candy Cane (done with body paint--very cool). If you need costume ideas just search Santarchy images. Anything that relates to Christmas is fair game. The creative costumes are half of the fun!
