Have you had a chance to see the latest 2020 Pub Crawl map?! We’ve updated the route this year in hopes to assist with bus congestion.  Our great friends at Missouri Eagle have lined up some amazing bus sponsors for this year’s event! New color routes have been established and busses in route will be matching. That’s right, we’re painting busses to help attendees identify which bus will be on which route!


Don't let today's weather detour you from enjoying the one and only Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl.  Enjoy your snow day and pack your bags to head to the Lake of the Ozarks for a fun-filled day and night with friends.  The forecast is showing mostly sunny and 41 degrees on Saturday.  MoDot and our great cities will ensure the roads are clear and ready for the busses to start at 4 pm on Saturday.  Don't forget to pick up your wrist bands and your t-shirts, the t-shirts won't last long.  We can't wait to see everyone on Saturday!  Let's Crawl Lake of the Ozarks!!!!

Win an All Inclusive Pub Crawl Package

Everyone who enjoys a night of live music, hanging out with great people, spectacular drinks, and a sober driver needs to attend the largest annual party at the Lake of the Ozarks.  The Lake Pub Crawl is giving one lucky winner the chance to attend the largest Mardi Gras Pub Crawl for free.


Enter To Win

A wristband to get you into all of the venues and a ride on all of the busses for the Mardi Gras Pub Crawl at the Lake of the Ozarks on Saturday, February 8, 2020, is just $10. If you're coming from out of town, you'll need to book a hotel room, plus there's the cost of drinks and food while you're out. Oh, and you're going to need something awesome to wear, too. After a while, that all starts adding up, so we're giving some very lucky people a great big bunch for FREE STUFF to take care of some of those costs!

It's easy and absolutely FREE to enter our incredible Lake Pub Crawl Giveaway. Simply visit www.LakePubCrawl.com and enter your name, birthdate (because you've gotta be at least 21 to enter,) email address, and phone number. Once that's done, you will be entered into a drawing which will take place on January 31, 2020. (Yes, it's that easy!) The lucky winners will receive this amazing $250 prize package:

  • 1 nights lodging at The Lodge at Port Arrowhead or The Regalia Hotel & Conference Center (Please call the hotel directly to make your reservation)
  • Various $10 Gift Cards from participating venues
  • 2 Official Event Shirts

What Happens at the Lake Pub Crawl?

For anyone unfamiliar with what exactly happens at the Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl (where have you been?) here is a quick rundown of the excitement that awaits you. The purchase of a $10 wristband gives you access to:  

  • LOTS of Pub Crawl Stops - This year's pub crawl will include 13 bars and restaurants on the route. We have added a great new venue this year for you to try and we still may add a couple more.

  • Hotel Discounts - You don't have to buy a wristband to take advantage of some great hotel packages happening over the Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl weekend, but if you're in town anyway, you might as well join us! Lots of hotels, motels, and resorts in town will be offering special discounts for this event. If they are on the pub crawl route, our busses will pick up and drop off at that location, and if they're not, ask if they will have a shuttle to get you here. (Most do!)
