PARTY LIKE IT’S THE BIG EASY IN THE LITTLE CITY!

The Reno Mardi Crawl is an annual Mardi Gras-themed bar crawl in what’s become known as the Crawl Capital, Reno Nevada. If you’re not familiar with bar crawls, they’re like massive costume parties with booze for people who like going out and having fun- and these parties last all night!

We’ll have classic Mardi Gras drinks like Hurricanes and Hand Grenades, beaded Mardi Gras necklaces to collect at 15 different venues, live entertainment and thousands of costumed revelers to party the night away with.

Don’t miss out on the chance to have the time of your life while saving money and celebrating one of the biggest parties of the year- Mardi Gras! It’s one time where you’re guaranteed to make the best memories that you and your crew will talk about for ages.

WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED (IN BEADS)

ONE NIGHT WHERE IT’S 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 Mardi 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!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THE RENO MARDI CRAWL

From last year’s article in This is Reno:

“It’s perfect, it’s authentic,” said Phillip Romanelli. “In New Orleans this would be times 50 on every street in the French Quarter, so these guys got the right vibe. The band is tight, they sound great, and the outfits, everything is perfect. These guys got great spirit and I’m just hanging out following them, it’s very cool.”
