About Lowertown SantaCon

Lowertown SantaCon is half spectacle, half pub crawl and half flash mob—that’s one and a half things!—in the chill Lowertown historic and arts district of Saint Paul, MN. Saturday, December 17th, 2016 will mark the 9th year of the annual event.

SantaCon (aka “Santarchy” aka “The Red Menace”) is an annual worldwide Santa Claus convention occurring in cities around the globe. People dress as Santa, other associated characters, and variations on the theme—and embark on an epic pub crawl around their city.

Come as Santa, come as an elf or reindeer or get creative and come as a Santasaurus, a Hanukkah Chicken, a Kwanza Ham…you get the picture! No wristbands, no tickets, this sleigh ride is free!
