"Santarchy /Santacons take place every year (since 1999 in DC) in major cities all over the world, involving tens of thousands of Santas. Santarchy is a free, non-profit, non-political, non-religious & non-sensical celebration of holiday cheer, goodwill, and fun. There is no good reason to dress up in cheap Santa suits, run around town, give gifts, sing songs, have strangers sit on our laps, and decide who is naughty or nice -- but it's a whole lot of fun -- so Santa does it anyway."
Questions, email Santa@SantarchyDC.com. Note, usually after running around through the streets the Santa's end up at local DC bars. Read more about the event and the details of how it works here!
The starting point for Santarchy will be announced a few days before the event. The best way to keep track of Santa on Saturday will be on twitter @SantaArchyDC.
Meet up at noon at the Ice Skating at National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden
Official Starting point will be on the "mall-side" steps of the National Museum of Natural History. Madison Drive. and 9th St NW (general map) starting at 1:00pm.
