The Original 12 Bars of Christmas

Join us for Minnesota’s own holiday pub crawl. Originated in 2004, the original 12 Bars of Christmas (12BoC) is the largest holiday pub crawl in Minnesota. This is the original charity event, put on by local Minnesotans to support Children’s Minnesota. To date, this event has raised over $115K for Children’s Child and Family services! The event runs from 6pm to bar close, with participants coming when they are able. A participant t-shirt or wrist band is included in entry fee and wearers will get access to great food, drink and cover specials all night long.
