Event Information

The much-anticipated eighth annual Norfolk Santa Crawl will take place on Saturday, December 6th, 2014, visiting landmark bars in downtown Norfolk, Virginia. ALL proceeds from this very special event will go directly to the Ghent Bar Tours. For more information on the event, participating locations, and participating Santas, please use the links in the menu above.

Note that unlike most of our other local events, this special event is intended primarily as a thank-you event for our volunteers and is therefore limited to approximately the first 60 paid participants. (Depending on the turnout for this year's event, we will consider expanding our capacity next year.)

TO PARTICIPATE: At this time, the event is by invite only. Invitations have been sent out to all 2013 participants and to all of the 2014 volunteers. If you are a 2013 Santa Crawl participant or a 2014 volunteer, you have until November 17th, 2013 to reserve your space using your access code that has been sent to your email. Starting on November 17th, 2014 this event will be open to the public to sign up. Remember this special event is intended primarily as a thank-you event for our volunteers and is therefore limited to approximately the first 60 paid participants.

Reserve Your Space Now!

Once you have received an invitation to the Santa Carwl, you must do the following:

  1. Reserve your space using you acces code with a $50 donation to the Ghent Bar Tours
  2. Secure a Santa Claus or Mrs/Ms Claus costume
  3. Arrange for safe transportation or lodging the night of the event

This means if you already have (2) and (3) covered, then you only need to make a $50 donation and you are set for the whole evening - we will cover the expense of your first beverage at each of the seven locations visited on the crawl. Of course, if you feel you can properly handle more than that you are more than welcome to purchase additional beverages on your own. Questions? Contact us and we'll get you answers.
