Here's all the latest details! Consider this and the Facebook event page to be your definite sources of info.

Hey Santa! Guess what time of year it is, Santa! The red menace descends on Seattle this Saturday December 21st! Well over one thousand of us will be parading through Pioneer Square, Downtown, and Cap Hill! This event is free - Santa doesn't pay a cover!

Santarchy is an annual 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. 

Want to help during the big day? It's not too late:
- Print copies of the map and carol book.
- Know the time and be familiar with the route to help wrangle Santas to the next stop.
- Got some talent? Show it off today.
- If Santas are acting inappropriately, find a way to peacefully fix the situation.

1. Santa does not fuck with kids
2. Santa does not fuck with police
3. Santa does not fuck with bar staff
4. Santa does not fuck with Santa 

1. My name is Santa. Your name is Santa. We are Santa. Who's in charge here? Santa!
2. Santa will bring cash and tip. No cards! No complex orders! Lines will be long, so keep it quick and simple.
3. Wear a Santa suit! Or be an elf! Or reindeer! Get in the holiday spirit. Wearing just a Santa hat with regular clothes is meh.
4. Wear good walking shoes. Santa is covering lots of ground.
5. This is a participatory event. Do not expect us to entertain you, though we will. Bring something Santa will enjoy: candy, toys, games, stickers, buttons, signs, or a kickass costume.
6. Expect lines. Santa will deal with it, find another spot nearby, or bring an alternate means of drinking... keeping in mind the establishments won't approve.
7. Pace yourself. Know your limits. Remember to eat! And Santa doesn't drink and drive! Take a bus, cab, Uber, or Lyft.
8. Share your photos and thoughts on the Facebook wall! or use hashtag #SeattleSanta
