Reno Santa Crawl

Your Guide to the 2021 Reno Santa Pub Crawl

Calling all Santas! It’s time to take to the streets of the Biggest Little City for the annual Reno Santa Pub Crawl!  Kick-off the Christmas season with thousands of Santas as they take over downtown Reno on Saturday, December 11. Here’s what you need to know in order to have a fun and memorable time.

Purchase Your Santa Pub Crawl Passes

The Reno Santa Crawl brings an abundance of fun and Christmas spirit to town, but above all, it is a local charity event. The proceeds from pass purchases go to area schools to help provide educational opportunities in our community. So make sure to purchase your commemorative pass in advance for only $10.50 online or $10 in-person! Upgrade to a VIP Pass and get front-of-the-line privileges. With your pass, not only will you be giving back to the “claus,” you will also receive drink specials and free entrance to all of the participating Santa Crawl bars. Purchase your pass online or grab your pass before the event at one of these Reno shops:

  • Junkee Clothing Exchange, 960 S. Virginia St.
  • Party America, 5925 S. Virginia St.
