Santa Crawl

Your Guide to the 2018 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 15, 2018. Here’s what you need to know in order to have a fun and memorable time.

Purchase Your Santa Pub Crawl Cups

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 cup purchases go to area schools to help provide educational opportunities in our community. So make sure to purchase your commemorative cup in advance for only $5.50! Upgrade to a VIP Pass and get front-of-the-line privileges. With your cup, not only will you be giving back to the “claus,” you will also receive drink specials and free entrance to all 2018 Santa Crawl bars. Purchase your cups online or grab your cup before the event at one of these local shops:

  • Junkee Clothing Exchange, 960 S. Virginia St. in Reno
  • Chocolate Walrus, 465 S. Virginia St. in Reno
  • Chocolate Walrus, 1278 S. Virginia St., in Reno

More Jolly-Good Fun

Before you hit the streets, test out your Santa outfit on the slopes at Mt. Rose during their Santa Ski Day. You aren’t limited to Kris Kringle gear… anything holiday-related adds to the fun of this event.

On the night of the event, plan your crawl route so you can be under the arch at 10 p.m. for the iconic Santa Crawl photo. We dare you to try to find yourself in the crowd!
