Santacon NYC 2011 Santas Gone Wild

Santacon is a non-denominational, non-commercial, non-political and nonsensical Santa Claus convention that occurs once a year for absolutely no reason. Ten of thousands of Santas flooded the streets downtown NYC for Santacon 2011!

SantaCon is a 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.



  1. FYI – this video was posted on this year's slideshow of Santacon 2012. Anyone that came here from there, FYI – this is 1 year old and not anything you saw this year.
