IT’s Coming...

The Minneapolis 12 Bars of Christmas (12BoC) will be back for a 16th year on Friday, December 6th. Discounted pricing continues through Friday, October 25th. Get your crew together quick and get registered and join the thousands taking over downtown Minneapolis on Friday, December 6th!


Original. Homegrown. 12BoC.


Don't be fooled by a copycat event from non-local organizers. Be sure you and your friends sign up for the original 12BoC - Minnesota's own holiday crawl. If you're not signing up on 12BoC.com you're in the wrong place. Unlike the out of town event, proceeds are all local and benefits the Childrens Hospital and Clinics of Minnesota. We are proud to announce that we (YOU) have donated over $115,000 to the Childrens Hospital and Clinics of Minnesota since 2008.

Seriously! You’ve never been?

If you are reading this far you’ve obviously never experienced the 12BoC. Really?! Get it together. 12BoC originated in 2004 and has grown to be the largest holiday crawl in Minnesota. Thanks to all of you we have raised over $115,000 for the Children's Hospitals of the Twin Cities. To join simply sign up for a shirt OR wristband, put on your most festive holiday, and show up downtown on FRIDAY, December 6th and join in the tradition that is the legendary Twin Cities 12 Bars of Christmas (12BoC). 12BoC runs from 6PM to bar close.
