2020 is the 19th Year of the Mardi Gras Pub Crawl

Start 2020 with a bang by attending the Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl. This will be the 19th Annual Mardi Gras Pub Crawl and this one will not disappoint. The crawl started as a small local pub crawl to give the locals a great event to enjoy in the offseason. Over the years the pub crawl has grown into the biggest annual party at the Lake of the Ozarks that goers drive hours to attend. 

Some guests go all out with their Mardi Gras costume with exquisite masks, beads, large Mardi Gras hats, and we can’t forget the tutus. Purple, gold, and green outfits will fill the bars and streets of Osage Beach & Lake Ozark. If you aren’t interested in dressing up for the big event, that’s ok. Everyone is welcome to enjoy the night of fun. However, Mardi Gras Pub Crawl t-shirts will be available to purchase before the crawl or you can pick one up at the bars that are participating in the crawl. Wear them to the pub crawl or take one home as a keepsake. 

We are still working on finalizing the stops on the crawl this year, but last year we had 16 stops full of fun and entertainment. As more people continue to come to the pub crawl, more establishments will participate in the night of fun. The bars & restaurants will stretch from the outskirts of Osage Beach to the historic Bagnell Dam Strip. There will be a mix of live bands and DJ’s that will have the dance rocking all night long. 

The first year of the pub crawl guests were on their own to get from stop to stop. As the pub crawl progressed over the years, buses were added to shuttle crawlers from stop to stop. The event has grown so much last year we were up to 32 buses running from stop to stop picking up crawlers and taking them to their next stop. The buses will make stops throughout the night at participating hotels picking up folks who do not want to drive to the first stop of the night. Some hotels that are not on the route will provide their shuttle to ensure their guests get home safely. 

There is a $10 wrist band fee which will get you into all the bars and restaurants with no cover charge. 

The wrist band is required and includes:
  • Entry to 16 participating venues
  • Unlimited entertainment – All locations will have a band or DJ
  • Bus transportation to all 16 locations.
  • Pick up and drop off at participating Hotels/Motels.
Wrist bands can be purchased the night of the event or before the event at all the participating bars/restaurants and specific Hotel/Motel sponsors. Sunshine Daydream on the Bagnell Dam strip will have wrist bands available, too!

Stay tuned for the announcement of the bars/restaurants that will be participating in 2020 and the Don’t Drink & Drive Hotel packages that will be available. The 2020 Lake of the Ozarks Pub Crawl is scheduled for Saturday, February 8, 2020. The buses will run from 4:00 pm – 2:30 am to make sure everyone gets where they need to be that night.
