Every Faire Day
Pub Crawl

Laugh, sing and stumble your way through the Faire in a guided tour of our finest pubs! The Pub Crawl visits 6 pubs – and you receive one drink at each location – anything on tap! Including cider! There are two crawls daily: 11:30 a.m. & 1:30 p.m.

It is $50 per person to join The Pub Crawl in addition to a regular admission ticket. Each crawl is limited to ensure the best experience for all*. 15 tickets are available for purchase online via ShowClix to ensure your spot. You must redeem your Pub Crawl tickets at the Crown and Anchor Pub. A limited number of tickets (CASH SALES ONLY) will be available for day-of-purchase at the Crown and Anchor Pub on a first-come, first served basis.

CLICK HERE to buy Pub Crawl tickets!

Meet at the wine garden next to the Royal Oak Pub for the crawl to begin.

You MUST check in 30 minutes before your scheduled Pub Crawl to receive your wristband. No wristband means no Pub Crawl. If you are late, you will not receive all 6 drinks. No refunds.
NO CHILDREN under the age of 21 are permitted to accompany the Pub Crawl for any reason. THIS INCLUDES CHILDREN IN STROLLERS.

*The maximum number of participants for a pub crawl is subject to change due to staffing availability. No guarantee of a minimum, nor a maximum of a specific number is implied.
