2018 Reno Santa Pub Crawl

December 13, 2018

Reno Santa Pub Crawl, Reno, Nevada, NV
The annual Reno Santa Pub Crawl extravaganza for 2018 is on Saturday, December 15, starting at 7:30 p.m. Get on your Santa or Mrs. Santa suit (or other holiday costume) and join thousands of crawlers for this huge event, possibly the largest of its kind in the whole country. This is an adult drinking affair, so everyone is urged to read “Rules to Crawl By” and behave so a good time will be had by all.

It’s only $5 to participate, which is actually a charitable donation. You’ll still have to pay for your drinks at each of the participating establishments, but cup holders get discounted drinks and free cover at all the bars. Proceeds go to Washoe County Schools through Donorschoose.org.

The Reno Santa Crawl is big, but it’s only one of several similar events held throughout the year. To learn about more, check out “Beer Crawls in Reno.”


The spooky day is about to arrive and there are lots of scary (and not so scary) and fun things to do for Halloween around the Reno area. On the scary side, some of the haunted houses will be open up to and including Halloween night.

On the fun side, many pumpkin patches and corn mazes continue through Halloween on Wednesday, October 31, 2018. Also on Halloween and during the few days before, quite a few free trick-or-treating events take place, from the Halloween Harvest Festival at Idlewild Park to events at casinos, shopping centers, museums and more. Halloween for grown-ups is also an option for those 21+.

Halloween falls on a Wednesday in 2018, so the weekend before is when many Halloween activities will be taking place. To get a handle on what is happening and when, go to my “Halloween Events, Activities, Free Trick-or-Treating in the Reno Area” article.

There are free and safe trick-or-treating events, haunted houses, pumpkin patches and corn mazes. There will be numerous adults-only Halloween parties for grown-up ghouls.
