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 December 9, 2017. Here’s what you need to know in order to have a fun and memorable time.
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! With your cup, not only will you be giving back to the “claus”, you will also receive drink specials and free entrance to all 2017 Santa Crawl bars (a list of participants is below). 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, 1278 S. Virginia St. in Reno
Adam & Eve, 7520 Longley Ln. in Reno
Adam & Eve, 3220 US-50 in Carson City

Some of Reno’s most popular casinos and bars – Silver Legacy Resort Casino, 5 Star Saloon, El Dorado Resort Casino, Ole Bridge Pub, Pizza Reno and many more – will be providing holiday food and 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.
