2016 Phoenix Santarchy
December 17, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFREE
As always, this a FREE event with no promotional associations, going strong since 2007! However, we have 300 needy familys that need suppport, so toy donations are greatly appreciated! In addition, our perfromers make this a very spcial event and put life and limb at risk for you.
This is a very early posting for the event, as many of you have been reaching out early so you can make your plans for this year. It’s a little later than usual as the great people at Wasted Grain want to host the last stop and function as our afterparty this year. As ususal I will post the final suggested route the week leading up to the event. Hope to see you out in your Xmas finest.
Twisting the holiday paradigm until it screams for mercy is fun! Getting arrested is not. Santa Claus is friendly, respectful, and cooperative with police officers, security guards, bouncers, and store owners and doesn’t break any laws! “Disorderly Conduct” is not a merit badge. Have your own special twisted fun, but don’t fuck it up for the rest of us! Our santas do not destroy property, steal merchandise, or do harm to others. The authorities and local businesses usually take Santa’s antics in the loving holiday spirit Santa intends, so be nice to them. Seriously – don’t argue. If they don’t want Santa there, Santa should move along.

YOU MUST BE IN FULL CHRISTMAS COSTUME!
Slacks and a hat are *NOT* Christmas costume. An ugly sweater is DEFINITELY NOT Christmas costume. There are events for that stuff, but this event is not one of them.
This is very important. You will be a Santa in a huge group of
Santas. Lines at some bars will be long. This is inevitable, though
we have tried our best to mitigate this as much as possible. Do not bring outside drinks into any bar or restaurant. And remember that drinking alcohol on the streets is illegal. Santa does not have any special permits or permission to be exempt from these laws.
Finally, by showing up, you acknowledge that being Santa can be risky business. You accept all consequences that could potentially arise from your personal participation and any participation of others which may affect you.
