For those of you that have attended the Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl in the past, you already know the massive amounts of fun and excitement we've got planned. For anyone that is new to this popular annual event at the Lake of the Ozarks, the information in today's blog is bound to make you want to check us out this year.
Of course, since this year we're adding a couple of days and making the Lake Pub Crawl Passport event last Friday, February 19-Sunday, February 21, there's something new for everyone to learn about us, both the seasoned pub crawlers and the newbies! Keep reading and get ready to get excited!
New This Year
Extra Days - In an effort to make it a little easier to practice social distancing during this year's Lake Pub Crawl, the event will last 3 entire days instead of just 1. This will allow everyone to spread their venue visits out throughout the weekend instead of all trying to cram into the same spaces at the same time.
No Buses - Buses will not be running this year. It would be much too difficult to make those close quarters safe with current concerns. This is another reason this year's event is spread out over an entire weekend. You and your friends can take turns serving as "sober chauffeur" each day or, if no one wants to volunteer for that, we have a wide variety of safe transportation options for you to use at www.LakePubCrawl.com and these will also be listed on our mobile app.
A Mobile App - Also brand new this year, we will be launching a Lake Pub Crawl Passport mobile app which should be available for purchase with a $15 donation early in February. With this app, you will be able to check-in at each stop on the Lake Pub Crawl route which will give you the chance to win some fantastic prizes.
Those fantastic prizes we just mentioned can be accessed in two different categories. First, if you are able to visit at least 50% of this year's venue stops, you are a "Seasoned Crawler" and will be entered to win one of the following prizes.
- 1 of 8 Pub Crawl Venue Gift Certificate Bundles valued at $100 for assorted lake area establishments
- A 2-night stay at Camdon on the Lake
- A 2-night stay at Inn at Grand Glaize
- $1,000 Cash
- A Budweiser Golf Stay & Play Package
- A Lake of the Ozarks Vacation Package valued at $1,000

Awesome Live Music
Be sure to bring your dancing shoes because we've got the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks happening all weekend along the Lake Pub Crawl Passport route. We will be updating the website from now until pub crawl weekend as soon as each venue lets us know who will be playing.
Food & Drink Specials
Just like with the awesome live music, many of the Lake Pub Crawl stops will be offering incredible food and drink specials throughout the weekend. We will update each venue's information on the Participating Venues & Details page of our website as that information is sent to us, so be sure to check back often to find out where the best deals are going to be.
Book Your Mardi Gras Weekend Stay
Another feature that will definitely come in handy to you on the Lake Pub Crawl website is our long list of places to stay at the Lake of the Ozarks. We have many lodging partners that would love to host you for the Mardi Gras weekend and many of them will be offering discounts if you mention that you're in town specifically for the Lake Pub Crawl. This is yet another page that will be updated often, so keep your eye on it until you find the perfect place to stay.
As we've mentioned a few times above, the Lake Pub Crawl website is being updated almost daily as new venues, hotels, transportation companies, and sponsors join us. Check back often to see the latest updates. You can also follow us on Facebook or Instagram and even sign up for email newsletters and text messages to stay in-the-know.
All the information you need to attend the biggest Mardi Gras Pub Crawl in Missouri is waiting for you to discover it at www.LakePubCrawl.com. We're looking forward to seeing you in just a few weeks!
