Santa is NOT coming…

We just simply don't have enough volunteers to run the event safely anymore. If you want the event to happen in 2020 and future years join our volunteers group to offer your help.

What is Santacon?

Santacon is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious and non-sensical Christmas parade that traditionally takes place in London one Saturday every December. There's no particular reason to dress up in Santa suits, run around, give gifts, sing songs, have strangers sit on our laps and decide who is naughty or nice. But it's a lot of fun so Santa does it anyway!

What you need

Don't be 'THAT' Santa


1: Pick it up

Take only mince pies and sherry, leave only sleigh tracks on the roof and a lingering sense of delight.


2: Hold it in

We endeavour to make sure there's regular 'rest' stops on all routes. Just ask a helper if you need directions…


3: Keep it Festive

Eat, drink, be merry, but be sensible. Don't let your Christmas cheer become another's grief.
