Park City Santa Pub Crawl 2019

It’s the most wonderful night of the year! The annual Park City Santa Pub Crawl is an excellent opportunity for locals to take over Historic Main Street before the crowds of winter visitors arrive. Taking place this year on Saturday, December 7, the pub crawl has grown exponentially since its launch nine years ago. The festive night welcomes those 21 and over to don holiday-themed costumes and spread holiday cheer to the bars on Main Street. Pub crawlers comprise a healthy mix of ages from those in their 20s to 70s, so there’s no excuse not to join the several hundred crawlers we anticipate once again. It’s quite a spectacle as people tend to get seriously clever with their costumes. Expect plenty of reindeer, gingerbread men, Mrs Clauses, Santa Clauses, Santa’s Little Helpers, human Christmas Trees, Jesuses, angels, and more! And if you don’t want to go over the top, just a Santa hat will do. Best part? It’s free! Just pay for what you consume, and please bring an unwrapped, new toy to donate to the Operation Hope Toy Drive at Downstairs. They will be distributed to Summit County children.

While the Santa Pub Crawl originally consisted mostly of Park City locals, the word sure has gotten out. People travel from Salt Lake City, Heber City, and even out of state to join the revelry which coincides with Deer Valley Resort’s opening day. Crawlers are welcome to join from the start or at any of the bars along the way.


Recommendations: plan a safe way to get home or book a hotel room (Park City Peaks is offering a special rate to those who mention the pub crawl when booking). It’s also wise to bring cash. Packed bars mean it can be a wait for credit cards to be processed. 

Here’s the schedule:

6-6:45 Butcher’s Chop House and Bar – a perfect gathering spot to fuel up on food before a night of imbibing
6:45 – 8:15 Downstairs – this always becomes a big dance party with a DJ
8:15-10:30 No Name, The Spur, and Flanagans – with so many attendees, we are spreading out between the three bars. Take your pick or stop at them all! (Rage Against the Supreme, a local favorite, is performing at The Spur)

End of night Crawler party:
10pm- 1am:
The Cabin’s new location at 427 Main St.

La Jolla Santa Pub Crawl on December 15

INAUGURAL LA JOLLA SANTA PUB CRAWL ON DECEMBER 15 TO COLLECT TOY DONATIONS FOR RADY CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL

Four Participating Restaurants and Bars Encourage Revelers to Bring Unwrapped Toys

La Jolla Santa pub CrawlSpearheaded by the co-founder of the hugely successful Park City Santa Pub Crawl in Utah which now draws 2,000 revelers each year, the first-ever La Jolla Santa Pub Crawl will be held on Saturday, December 15, beginning at 6:00 p.m. It is designed to be a fun opportunity to eat, drink and be merry, San Diego-style. The pub crawl is open to the public, ages 21 and over. It is free to attend, but participants are asked to bring an unwrapped toy to Hennessey’s anytime during the evening. The donations will be delivered to Rady Children’s Hospital to distribute to their patients. Participating bars on the pub crawl are George’s at the Cove Level 2, The Spot, Jose’s Courtroom, and Hennessey’s. Crawlers are invited to be creative and wear festive, holiday-themed costumes.

“The Park City Santa Pub Crawl began eight years ago with about 20 participants, and it has since grown to about 2,000 people, taking over the town and traveling from all over the country,” says Hilary Reiter of Redhead Marketing & PR, organizer of both La Jolla and Park City Santa Pub Crawls. “Given how many people from San Diego visit Park City and vice versa, it makes so much sense to replicate the event in La Jolla with all the great venues and walkability there. Each year, we see amazingly fun and creative costumes, and a vast age range from early 20s to those in their 70s. Everyone has a blast, we collect thousands of toys, and the local economy gets a great boost as well.”

Below is the pub crawl schedule for December 15. Participants are welcome to join for all or some of it.6:00 p.m.

George’s at the Cove Level 2
7:00 p.m. The Spot
8:00 p.m. Jose’s Courtroom
9:00 p.m. Hennessey’s (Toy drop off)

Unwrapped toys may be dropped off at Hennessey’s at the beginning of the night for convenience or anytime thereafter during the evening. To view the Rady Children’s Hospital toy wish list and the items that cannot be accepted, visit https://www.radyfoundation.org/toys
