The 8th Annual SANTA Monica Pub Crawl will take place on Saturday, December 10, 2016 at 5pm in Santa Monica, CA. The city's best bars and restaurants will come together to help raise money for those in need during the holidays through a partnership with the Westside Food Bank.
Crawlers sign up online, choose their favorite SANTA route and pay a $15 donation/entrance fee. A very generous portion of all proceeds benefit the Westside Food Bank to feed the less fortunate over the holidays. Last year's event raised over $20,000...enough for 100,000 meals!
Participants must purchase the official SMPC wristband in order to gain entry into the bars and receive the holiday food & drink specials. Wristbands can be purchased and picked up at one of the official starting locations along each route.
You must pick up your wristband from your official starting location and then move along to any of the bars on the crawl. A limited amount of wristbands will be available at each starting location for $20. Must arrive early - first come first serve.
All SMPC participants are asked to dress in Santa/Holiday attire, either individually or in teams, so that the streets of Santa Monica will be filled with merry cheer, such as: Santa, Mrs. Claus, Elves, Reindeer, Carolers and Santa's Helpers. The Pub Crawl will include bars on Wilshire, The Pier, Promenade and Main Street.

The SANTA Monica Pub Crawl is a community event that encourages responsible drinking by participants. When taking part in any events that involve drinking, always keep safety first.
Early arrival at 5pm is strongly suggested. Bars will hit capacity! To keep the crawl moving, we recommend a max of 1 hour at each location. Please pick up your wristband at your designated starting location. Once doing so, you are free to move along each of the routes as you please. Thank you for your support of the Westside Food Bank. You are making a huge difference as every $5 will feed 20 people in need.
