No matter how old you are, your ID will be checked at every bar! Bring valid ID.
A complete Santa suit, Mrs. Claus suit, snowman, crown of thorns & loin cloth or some other festive decoration are not only part of the deal, but exceedingly FUN! And it will get you in free to Official Crawl bars & make you unbelievably popular! The point is to have fun & to make the holidays a great time!
The Holidays are all about giving and Santa is a giver. This event is all about giving. Bring gifts to hand out to strangers and you will feel the magic of the Christmas.
Support the Claus by frequenting only those establishments on the Official Map! They’re the ones Supporting the Claus with much appreciated donations! Visit all others on another night!!!
There are no tickets to purchase to participate, (drinks unfortunately, you must pay for.) If you’d like to Support the Claus, get yourself a waaay cool Official cup which gives you discounted drinks and free cover all of the bars!! They shall be available for purchase at participating shops! Chocolate Walrus, Prism Magic Junkie, Adam and Eve in Carson City are official Santa Crawl cup shops.
The Official Reno Santa Crawl Maps are available at all of the bars! If you are staying at the Silver Legacy under our hotel code, you will be provided a map upon checkin. We have also posted it on the Map page.
That includes no jaywalking, littering, or being an asshole. Also if nature calls, use one of the restrooms at any of the hundreds of bathrooms available at the downtown businesses or use outdoor restrooms shown on the map located near Singers.
You should try to visit the bars in each of the areas on the Map; however you should pace yourself and drink water!!!
Keep in mind your tasty beverages must be finished before leaving each establishment. Let’s not put the police to work. K?
Leave NO wassailer behind! If you find a Santa that has too much to drink, put ’em in a cab! Nobody wants to trip over an obliterated Santa!
Never hang out in the same place for more than 20-30 minutes. It’s going to be quite a feat to hit all 50+ venues as it is!! It’s a marathon! Keep moving!
Don’t forget to tip your bartenders, etc! They deserve it for putting up with our sh….holiday spirit!
It’s BAD! We LOVE naughty! We do NOT love BAD!
Don’t forget to sing carols & do a bit of wassailing!! Come revel in the awesomeness that is the Reno Santa Pub Crawl! However, no marshmallows. Santa’s caught with marshmallows or anything else that can be tossed around will end up sharing them with your new roommates in the county jail.
Of course, there are Official After Parties! Once again – check our the Map for where!
