The Gasparilla Parade is on Saturday, January 29th this year, and Downtown Crawlers crew is bringing the party with their 5th Annual Gasparilla Bar Crawl! Whether you set sail in Downtown Tampa or South Tampa, You won’t want to miss the invasion as crawlers will get:

  • A free welcome shot at 5 participating bars of your choice
  • Exclusive drinks specials
  • Bar games (beer pong, corn hole, etc.)
  • Downtown Crawlers’ famous Beer Shotgun presented by Bud Light
  • Entry to the Best Pirate Costume Contest
  • Other surprises!

Check-in is from 9 a.m. to noon at District Tavern and Park & Rec for Downtown Tampa crawlers and at The Patio for South Tampa crawlers. Sure, you can just pregame in the morning, but if you opt for the Brunch Crawl ticket, you’ll enjoy a delicious brunch buffet and bottomless mimosas!

While we recommend eating a hearty meal on Gasparilla morning, Downtown Crawlers’ best value is their VIP Ticket, which includes standard crawler perks, brunch and bottomless mimosas, and access to the Bud Light Seltzer Treasure Cove during the parade. What waits for you in the treasure cove?

  • Live entertainment headlined by DJ Ekin
