How It Works

The St. Paul Santa Crawl is a charity pub crawl benefiting Toys for Tots. All pub crawlers who bring a new, unwrapped toy for the donation box will get 1 drink token, good for a free beer or cider!

Additionally, Santa Crawlers who have the passports stamped at all 8 bars will be entered to win free beer for a year, courtesy of Miller Lite and Heineken!

You must have a St Paul Santa Crawl wristband to participate. To get your wristband, purchase your ticket here. Bring your ticket to any Ragstock in the Twin Cities to redeem it for a wristband. Buy your Santa Crawl outfit and supplies while you’re there, and you’ll get 20% off!

Start the St. Paul Santa Crawl at any of the 8 bars you like. Every bar will have a toy donation box, live entertainment, and awesome drink specials for St Paul Santa Crawlers.

When you hear a bell ring, that means Santa’s Sleigh has arrived to take you to the next bar.

Grab a passport from the Santa Crawl elves at your first bar and get it stamped. Once you get a stamp at every bar, leave it with the elves at your final stop and you’ll be entered to win free beer for a year!

What's a Santa crawl?

It's a pub crawl where everyone dresses like Santa Claus.

Do I have to dress like Santa? Can I dress like a reindeer or a ginger bread man instead?

As long as it's in the spirit of the holiday, you can wear whatever you want! Just make sure the naughty bits are nice and covered.

I want to wear an ugly sweater instead.

Cool. Ragstock has a TON of those.

Will there be live reindeer at the St. Paul Santa Crawl?


What about caroling? Can we do that?

Of course! We're calling it "Carol-oke."

What else is happening at the Santa Crawl?

So much! Drunken gift-wrapping contests, costume contests, REINDEER, dance parties all over the place, a holiday-themed spelling bee, maybe some puppies, and so much more! Check our Facebook page to stay nice and up-to-date.

When is it?

Saturday, December 13. 5 PM - Midnight.

Where do we start?

If you picked up your wristband early at Ragstock, you can start at any bar you like. If you don’t have your wristband yet, or you still need to buy your ticket, you’ll need to start at O’Gara’s.

How do we get from bar to bar?

Aboard one of Santa's merry sleighs,* which will be running in a circuit to all of the bars all night long. Our helper elves will ring a bell every time the sleigh is near, so you know when to go outside. You must have a wristband to get on the bus!

*Sleighs look suspiciously like party buses.

Do we have to have a wristband to participate?

Yes! Wristbands get you into the bars, they get you the drink specials, and they get you on the buses. You must have one to participate in the St. Paul Santa Crawl. Buy one now!

Wait, drink specials? Tell me more!

You don’t have to shout! We’ll have $3 Miller Lites and Strongbows, $4 Heinekens, and $5 Red Bulls + 3 Olives vodka.

I heard I can win free beer for a year.

Yep! Grab a St Paul Santa Crawl passport from the helper elves at your first bar. If you get a stamp at every bar, you’ll be entered to win free beer for a year courtesy of Miller Lite and Heineken! Make sure to fill out your information on the passport, and leave it with the elves at your last stop.

And this is a charity pub crawl, right?

Yes! If you bring a toy to the St. Paul Santa Crawl, you'll get a free drink. We donate all toys to Toys for Tots. There will be a toy box at every bar, attended by special helper elves, who will be handing out drink tokens to all toy donators. Toys must be NEW and UNWRAPPED! Don’t try and come with a box full of matchbox cars like some dude did last year. (Nice try though.)

How do I get my wristband?

You purchase it online here. Then you print you ticket. Then, STARTING DECEMBER 2, you bring that printed ticket to any metro Ragstock location and exchange it for your wristband. While you're there, you'll get 20 % OFF your Santa costume purchases!

What if I buy a ticket but don't go early to Ragstock?

You can redeem your ticket for a wristband at the Will-Call table at O'Gara's beginning at 4 PM.

What if I show up to the Santa Crawl without a ticket?

You can buy a ticket at Will-Call at O'Gara's too.

Where should I get my Santa costume?


Can I buy wristbands for my friends too?

Yes. You can also pick up their wristbands for them, as long as you have a printed ticket for every wristband you're picking up.

But I don't have a printer.

You can have your ticket mailed to you instead. Mailing will happen two weeks prior to the St. Paul Santa Crawl.

Do I have to be 21 to participate?

Yes. No exceptions. Bah humbug.

I have more questions that you haven't predicted I would ask.

Great. Email us at

This is going to be so much fun!

Yeah, we know!
