2018 Facebook Event Page

Lowertown SantaCon was voted “Best Twin Cities Pub Crawl” by City Pages, listed in City Pages’ “50 Reasons We Love Winter in Minnesota,” has been City Pages “A-List”-ed, Pioneer Press “Best of the Week”-ed, and shouted-out by DJ Mark Wheat from The Current and DJ Larry Englund from KFAI. We are a Midwestern media-accredited extravaganza of the human holiday spirit!


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!

Lowertown SantaCon features a costumed cast of hundreds. This is a community-organized event and Santa’s grace is boundless. For a decade, people expected no entrance fee, no wristbands, and no merchandise. Accept no impostors.
