What in the world is SantaCon Buffalo?

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. Something like a Santapalooza or Santa Rampage, SantaCon incorporates a day of cheerful bawdy and harmless behavior while friends, family and strangers gather together to sing Christmas carols around the streets..of Buffalo. In simple terms..just dress up and be ready to party!

What do we do during SantaCon Buffalo?

Meeting point will be at 1:30pm (at VENU: 75 West Chippewa). Here you’ll have the opportunity to meet with friends, family & strangers to take pictures and of course, have a few good laughs. It’s not every day you’ll be surrounded by tons of Santa’s in the middle of Downtown Buffalo. From there we’ll head to the “North Pole Stroll.”

Do we have to dress up?

YES! Don’t just show up in a hat! This is Santacon! So for the love of Rudolph wear a Santa costume (or something Christmas-y)! Get a Santa suit. Buy a Santa suit. Make a Santa suit. Everyone else will be wearing a costume of some sort and we don’t want you to feel lame. Get creative with your costume.. make modifications! Pirate Santa, Super Santa, James Bond Santa, Biker Santa, Doctor Santa, Hanukkah Harry, Sugar Plum Fairy, Reindeer, Terminator Reindeer, Elf…you get the idea. Let’s show them what BUFFALO is made of.
