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. Our Santacon Portland is held on the first Saturday of December.
The 2016 Santacon drew hundreds of Santas and other holiday-themed costumes. Our stops included Pat’s Pizza, Lincoln's, Port City Music Hall, Oasis, Bonfire, Dusk, Drink Exchange, Gritty’s, Bull Feeney’s, Thirsty Pig, Grace, Brian Boru, and 51 Wharf.
