12 Bars of Christmas


It's coming.... the 12th Annual 12 Bars of Christmas (12BoC) is less than 2 weeks away.  Join the thousands of registered participants to celebrate the Twin Cities largest holiday crawl in downtown Minneapolis.  As if you needed any more enticing - it's our golden birthday and we'll be celebrating 12 years of 12BoC on 12.4.2015.   You must have a 12BoC shirt or wristband to participate.

Final Shirt Pickup Happy Hours

For those needing shirts, happy hours continue this week.  All shirts are now first come, first serve and these will likely be the final two shirt happy hours.  Quantities are limited, especially medium and XXL.  Stop out to one of the happy hours listed below to pick up your shirts.

  • *Tuesday, 11/24 - Park Tavern, St. Louis Park 5-8PM

  • *Wednesday, 11/25 - Casper's Cherokee, Eagan 5-8PM

Missed the shirt pre-order?

If you did not pre-order for a shirt you are still in luck.  You have 2 options...

  1. 1. Stop by one of the upcoming happy hours (listed on right) to get an extra shirt for you and your friends.  Extra shirts will be sold first come, first served.  Get 'em quick - limited quantities available.  We will continue to update the site after each happy hour with our availability of extras and if any sizes have run out.  Extra shirts are $25 each.

  2. 2. If you would rather scrap the shirt and just join the party in your most festive holiday attire, you can register for a 12BoC wristband which gives you access to this year's 12Boc, including free cover, drink, food specials and entertainment.  Wristbands are $25 each.
