SantaCon Hong Kong

Free

Get ready for the reddest and most bearded event in Hong Kong—the annual SantaCon.

SantaCon, which is short for Santa Convention, is a pub crawl like no other.

Hundreds of Santas, Mrs. Santas, elves, reindeer, and other Christmas personnel come out in full costume and paint the town red.

This year the Santas will meet in Central, and visit a number of venues, using different forms of transportation. You never know where you’ll go or how you’ll get there—on the Star Ferry? Perhaps a ride on the historic Tram? Down into the bowels of the MTR? There’s only one way to find out! The route is always announced the night before to keep the mystery alive.

The event is free, but it does raise money for a good cause. This year’s SantaCon is raising funds for the Love 21 Foundation, a local charity dedicated to bettering the lives of those living with Down syndrome and autism in Hong Kong, through physical activities and nutrition.

SantaCon events take place all over the world, with more than 400 events in 397 cities across 52 countries.

The event is adult-only, as it goes all night and visits a number of watering holes, so don’t bring your kids.

If you don’t have a full Santa suit, at least wear something red and a Santa hat, though more creative Christmas costumes are more than welcome.

Check SantaCon HK’s facebook page for updated info on the meeting location in Central, as well as what time you should show up.

In the meantime, get out there and get your costume ready!

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
