Detroit Santarchy 19th Annual Bus Crawl

We are Detroit’s ONLY OFFICIAL Santa Bus crawl! This year we celebrate on Saturday December 22nd. We are BIGGER and better this year with many new bars! Now your visiting family in town for the holiday can join in the fun this year.

As always this is a Full Holiday Costume Event! Join Santas, Elf’s, Reindeers, Christmas trees, Snowmen/women, the Grinch and what ever else holiday related you can come up with. Just NO UGLY SWEATERS Please! Use your imagination.

$20 Cash Only at the Gaelic League door or at one of our offsite pickup locations for a bus pass to all the participating venues. All participating venues require a Santarchy Pass for entry.

Buy your bus pass the night of the event at Santa’s headquarters inside the Detroit Gaelic League anytime after 7pm. Buses line up to pick up and drop off all night long starting at 7:30pm to shuttle you around downtown Detroit, Eastern Market, Midtown, and Corktown. All buses stop circling and return to the Gaelic League at 1am for the closing celebration. The Gaelic League is party central so swing on by for live DJ’s and bands all night long.

As a surprise each year all of the bars are announced the night of the event on your bus pass. This year there are a ton of new bars all with entertainment from Live Bands, DJ’s, to Karaoke.

Jump on a bus to the next bar every 15 minutes. ALL participating bars require the Detroit Santarchy Bus Pass this year for free entry or you will have to pay a cover charge at each bar.

Again don’t be a party pooper, we encourage full holiday related costumes to make this fun! So Please “No ugly Christmas sweaters!” Anything outrageous and Christmas related is encouraged.
