Reno Santa Crawl

Your Guide to the 2023 Reno Santa Crawl

Calling all Santas! It’s time to take to the streets of the Biggest Little City for the annual Reno Santa Crawl!  Kick off the Christmas season with thousands of Santas as they take over downtown Reno on Saturday, December 9. Here’s what you need to know to have a fun and memorable time.

Purchase Your Santa Crawl Cups

While you can still explore downtown Reno’s eclectic bar scene without a cup, you won’t want to miss out on the all-access opportunity during the event. Your cup gets you drink specials at every participating bar, free cover to all participating clubs, discounted hotel rooms, and access to contests and free giveaways. There are a variety of ways to get your hands on a crawl cup before or during the event.

  • Cup Pickup at Santa Crawl Pre-Party Friday, December 8, 2-9 p.m. at the Silver Legacy Silver Baron Ballroom C / Party in Rum Bullions 5 p.m. until late
  • Crawl Day Main Pickup Saturday, December 9, 2-9 p.m. at the Silver Legacy Silver Baron Ballroom C
  • Crawl Day Extra Pickup Saturday, December 9, 6-9 p.m. at Lead Dog Brewing

If you can’t make it to a physical location in advance, order online!

Participating Bars

Start the night under the Reno Arch on Virginia Street at 8 p.m. for the iconic Reno Santa Crawl photo. Trust us, you’ll never experience holiday spirit like this anywhere else. From there, the choice is yours!

Some of Reno’s most popular casinos and bars – Aura Ultra Lounge, The Brew Brothers, Ole Bridge Pub and many more – will be providing holiday drink specials during the event. Check out Reno Santa Crawl’s full list of participating casinos and bars that will be helping to keep Santa and his fellow crawlers full of joy this year.

Hotel Discounts

After you have crawled through the heart of Reno, you will want a comfortable place to rest that’s within walking distance. THE ROW Reno is offering discounted room rates at their properties so you can rest easy and indulge in luxury all weekend long. Be sure to book early since you won’t be the only Santa ready to kick off their boots after a night of festivities!

Remember Santas, BE SAFE. Don’t drink and drive, stay hydrated and play nice with the rest of the crawlers. You’ll want holiday drinks in your hand not lumps of coal in your stockings. Happy Crawlidays!
