Welcome to the Official FORBS Santas web siteFORBS trademarked logo

The Fraternal Order of Real Bearded Santas
also known as (FORBS)
are the hosts of the
original Santa Reunion and Luncheon.

We know that lots of photos were taken, the president of FORBS asked that any photos, that anyone was willing to share be sent in for potential use in the memory book and I would like to get them too, so I can make up a slideshow of the event, like I did last year it can be found on this  site on the events page or you can use the direct link. If you can send photos by email to the webmaster I will put them on a disk and forward them to Bob or if you have posted them on Facebook send me the link to the page and I can retrieve them from there.

2014 marked the
20th Annual Santa Reunion.
Which was held on the weekend of
January 24th -26th 2014.

The entire CHRISTMAS COMMUNITY was invited to attend the Santa World's
oldest & largest annual event:


Designer Bearded Santas, Mrs. Claus’ and Elves from here and across the US were all welcome and heartily invited to attend the Reunion Luncheon.

The Fraternal Order of Real Bearded Santas is a regional association. But if you attended the reunion and meet all other qualifications you can now join.

FORBS Membership shall be available to any resident of California, Arizona or Nevada who grows a beard for the purpose of portraying Santa Claus, who agrees to subscribe to the organization's Goal & Tenets (FORBS Bylaws, Article II, Section 2,) and whose application is accompanied by a digital facsimile of a government-issued ID, along with a clean FORBS Background Check (administered by industry-leader IntelliCorp). - which also activates the exclusive Abuse & Molestation protection included in the FORBS Liability Insurance policy. (optional).


Our bylaws have been changed by a vote of our membership to include having those that attend our Annual Santa Reunion and meet the requirements of membership with the exception of residence be able to join FORBS.

What this means is that if you are from another state outside of our regional  area of California, Arizona & Nevada and attend the 20th Annual Santa Reunion & meet our other requirements you can join FORBS.
