COSTUME EVENT – Theme: NEON Lights – Be Illuminated – Santa, Christmas, Winter holiday or Hanukkah COSTUMES ARE REQUIRED. Our featured charity is the Portland Police Sunshine Division.

Stumptown Events Inc., a 501(c)(3) Oregon non profit, hosts participant driven, costume themed progressive street theater events that promote local charities. Our dream is to bring a city scale festival party, dancing, joy and playfulness to our community. We invite you to participate, don’t just be a spectator – be spectacular.

Stumptown SantaCon 2015: Neon Lights begins at five anchor venues at 3:00 pm and ends at 9:00 pm with a street party in the Old Town entertainment district.

You don’t have to drink to enjoy this party!
Yes: make friends. Yes: bring something fun and unexpected our city.

This year, Santas are being asked to only enter venues on the approved Stumptown SantaCon list. Some venues don’t want the crowds who chase away regulars.

  • 3:00 – 5:00 pm Start off at one of FIVE ANCHOR VENUES: Splash Bar, Fifth Ave. Lounge, Shake Bar, Barrel Room and Dixie Tavern
  • 5:00 – 9:00 pm: North Pole Street Dance Club, Splash Bar, Fifth Aveue Lounge, Shake Bar, Barrel Room, Dixie Tavern, Fortune, Boiler Room, Jones Bar, Hobo’s, Mi Mero Mole, Old Town Pizza, Silver Dollar Pizza II, The Tube PDX and Old Town Subway.

For a $10 donation to the charity, these participating venues have agreed to waive their regular cover charge (if they have one) after our event from 9:00 pm until 12:00 midnight with a Stumptown Events Wristband: Splash Bar, Fifth Ave. Lounge, Shake Bar, Fortune, Tube, Barrel Room, Dixie Tavern, Big Trouble, Dirty, Embers, Hobo’s, Silver Dollar Pizza II, The Plank and Old Town Subway.

Wristbands will be available at the anchor venues and other locations throughout Stumptown SantaCon 2015
