GRAB YOUR FAVORITE COSTUME AND HAVE AN EPIC NIGHT!

One night, 15 bars, tons of drink specials & mayhem, and thousands of people in costumes!

Whether you’re a hard-core cosplayer with a fancy lightsaber, or you’ve been working on the best Rick & Morty costume or just have a Wonder Woman shirt you’ve been dying to bar hop or go clubbing in, this is THE night to go out!

The Epic Crawl is a massive costumed bar crawl where we encourage the entire multiverse of fans to show up and show off! It’s like the best parts of a fan festival, except instead of several days of trying to get an autograph from from the Avengers, it’s one night of legendary partying. If you haven’t been to a bar crawl before, they’re huge, city-wide costume parties with drink specials and entertainment you go from bar to bar to see, and nobody does it like Reno, NV!

WE’VE GOT YOUR ‘BEST NIGHT EVER’ COVERED

CRAWLS THAT MAKE IT EASY TO HAVE A LEGENDARY TIME

Know what sucks about going out? You work hard all week waiting for the weekend so that you and your friends can have a blast, and then when you finally make it out, there’s nothing going on. Or, even worse, there’s a party going on but you can’t seem to click with anybody! That’s lame, and we have a perfect solution: our world famous bar crawls.

On crawl night, we create an environment where all the bars on our crawl are packed full of people who are ready to party, and you totally fit in! It’s a perfect night to meet new friends- and since you know the theme to dress up as, everyone has something in common! Plus, you won’t spend too much of your hard-earned cash because we’ve set you up with specials on everything!

 
YOUR CRAWL CUP = EXCLUSIVE ACCESS TO FUN

We set you up with a commemorative cup and map that not only shows you where to go and what to do, but gives you access to awesome exclusives! With your 2017 Reno Epic Crawl cup, you’ll get:

  • List of the hottest night clubs, bars, restaurants ALL IN WALKING DISTANCE so you’ll never get tired, and all packed with crawlers!
  • Specially-themed live entertainment, go-go dancers and DJs!
  • Exclusive photo booth to capture your costume and all your friends!
  • Access to costume contests along with details on when everything’s going down!
  • One common theme means it’s the easiest night of the year to feel like you fit in- or stand out with something truly unique!
  • Party in a city with NO LAST CALL: people are still out having fun long after other cities have passed out!
EXCLUSIVE DISCOUNTS SO YOU WON’T GO BROKE

Want to party all night without running out of money? That’s one of the best things about crawls- with all the entertainment we’ve set it up so your dollar goes a long way:

  • At least one $3 Beer Special and one $3 Drink Special, and one premium special at every venue!
  • More specials on other drinks, shots and food too!
  • Free Entrance at all of the clubs on the crawl: you don’t have to pay cover!
  • Exclusive give-aways listed at certain venues on the maps just for crawlers!
  • DISCOUNT HOTEL ROOMS! We secure special codes for you to use at local hotels so you don’t have to drive anywhere when you’re done having fun!

LET US BE YOUR PARTY GUIDE FOR AN EPIC NIGHT

Crawl Reno puts on some of the largest bar crawls in the nation. USA Today listed our Zombie Crawl as one of the top 10 Halloween parties in the nation! We’ve been putting these events on for about a decade, for crowds between 2,000 and 20,000 people! We started doing it because we love to party and because Reno, with over 50 bars in a small area, along with hotel casinos, night clubs and no last call, is the best place in the country to do it!

RESERVE YOUR SPOT & DON’T MISS OUT!

Make sure you have the time of your life and only spend half what you would on an average night! Create memories with your friends and make new friends who love to party as much as you do! And make sure you book now, because cups and hotel rooms are likely to sell out!

BUY YOUR CRAWL CUPS & LIGHTSABERS

You can reserve your crawl cups now and they’ll be waiting for you on crawl night! All cups reserved online will be waiting at our start location (to be announced) at 7:30pm. If you have purchased yours online you don’t have to wait in line! Just show up with your picture ID and we’ll hook you up!
