Running of the Santas 2017 | 20th Annual Philly Mega Festival

Have a holly jolly bar crawl! Running of the Santas, Philadelphia’s premier winter festival, is coming back for 2017! With 8,000 tickets sold last year, this is a holiday event you will not want to miss. What better way to celebrate the holidays with your friends than by dressing up and enjoying two of the city’s most popular venues!

The event will take place at 2 locations: the North Pole aka Electric Factory and the South Pole aka Field House! Drink specials will be featured at each location.

Hosted by Susie Celek and Ben FM’s Matt Cord, the event will be featuring live music by various local artists including Split Decision, LeCompt, Secret Service, Sensational Soul Cruisers, B street Band, Shotn of Southern, LoveKilledKurt, Matt Quentin, Trainwreck, Romeo Delight, DJ Crix & Drummer, DJ Dinardo Brothers and more to be announced.

The goal of this event is to raise money for local charities, while getting a lot of santas to come together for one big party. A short 3 block “run,” and a Hottest Santa Contest make this event one of a kind.
