2021 will mark the tenth year of Saratoga SantaCON . . . Wait till you see what we have planned!!

What is Saratoga SantaCON?

It’s the Capital District’s largest pub crawl and has been for over 5 years. We are a bunch of Festively Dress Pub Crawlers that make our way through Downtown Saratoga Springs spreading cheer and Christmas spirit. Although Saratoga SantaCON is a fun time, our goal is to raise food and funds for the Franklin Community Center. Please check out the mission and the programs at the center, they are really an amazing group of individuals.

When is Saratoga SantaCON 2021:

Saturday, December 18th – Registration is at Noon Location: The Soundbar (6 Caroline Street, Saratoga Springs NY)

The 10th Anniversary twist:

A city wide Santa scavenger hunt that includes all the participating locations with photo tasks, trivia and hidden QR Codes. All the tasks will have point values and the Santa with the most points will be taking home $1000 in cash. (you must have made both donations to qualify)


We will be making an attempt to the break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Scavenger Hunt in the world (Currently held by Ottawa, Canada with 2,732 participants in 2017). At registration you will receive the login code to be able to participate in the Santa Scavenger Hunt.

How do I participate?

Purchase a ticket through our Eventbrite link ($10.00) Also bring 5 Non-perishable Food items as a donation that will be collected at the Soundbar Registration. Once both of those are confirmed you will be given the Santa Scavenger Hunt passcode. 100% of everything raised (Food & Funds) go directly to the Franklin Community Center.
