Can I bring my dog?


Since our pubs do not allow pets, please leave your dog at home. Service animals allowed.


Can I bring my kids?


Kids are welcome. Keep in mind that minors are only allowed under the supervision of parent or legal guardian, and the route is 3 miles, with some busy traffic crossings. That said, the BradtoberFest Run/Walk/Crawl is a family friendly event, and should be a lot of fun for music lovers of all ages.




What if I don't consume alcoholic beverages?


You'll still have a great time and tasty beverages to enjoy! Our pub stops will offer house root beer or other non-alcoholic beverages for those who prefer not to drink beer.




Where should I park?


The route is not a loop. We encourage carpooling/shuttling, your best best is to have one car at the beginning and one at the end of the route. Parking is on street at Bent Paddle (please don't park in their lot while out on the Run/Walk/Crawl) and in the parking garage on Superior street (near the casino). Public transport back to your car is also a possibility.



What if it rains?


The BradtoberFest Run/Walk/Crawl will go on, rain or shine! All pubs will host music and beer sampling indoors. If rain is in the forecast, be sure to bring your umbrella/rain gear! Please be aware that registration fees are nonrefundable.




What should I bring?
Your valid, government issued photo ID. Appropriate clothing for weather. Cash for pie, merch, and any additional beverage and food purchases you might like to make along the route. Costumes encouraged!
