SantaSlosh is a yearly event – the weekend before Christmas – where a whole lot of awesome folk get dressed up head to toe in a Santa outfit, bring a gift for charity and go on a pub crawl down Long Street.
SantaSlosh started in 2008 with 15 Santas and has been growing ever since. This year we expect around 340 Santas.
Each SantaSlosh is dedicated to a different social initiative.
This year SantaSlosh is bringing cheer to our furry friends at various animal shelters who don’t have home this Christmas.
Santas are asked to bring a tin/bag of non-perishable food or a toy for any size of cat/dog. If a bunch of Santas can fill some furry tummies or bring them some fun with a toy, then we’ll be over the moon.
On the evening of 15th December all the Santas will leave Santas grotto and make their way to 8 pubs on Long and Bree Street before heading to the after party at 11pm-ish.
The Santas are broken up into 8 teams of 35-40 Santas and each have a set list of pubs they need to visit and a challenge to complete at each pub. They have 30 mins at each pub before the next team moves in an kicks the previous team out!
