The 12BoC has arrived!

A sea of blue is about to take over downtown... who's ready?  We are expecting over 4,000 participants this year - a huge thank you to all for participating again in this great event. 

The 12BoC will work just like it has the past few years.  It's a shotgun start starting at 6PM and goes until bar close.  You are free to take whatever path you wish - just follow the blue shirts and keep an eye on that handy bar list on your sleeve.  All bars will honor their specials all night long so if you find that a bar is packed, just move on and stop back at a later time. A few things we would like to call attention to...

We certainly want to see everyone downtown wearing their blue 12BoC shirts - but we also want to stress that creativity is encouraged.  Get your group together and dress in your most festive Christmas attire - Uncle Buck's will have contests for best dressed, sexiest and most creative.  Make it happen.  Contests will begin at 11PM at Uncle Buck's.  Get there early!!!

Rouge at the Lounge will be giving away a "Celebrity VIP Package" that includes Grey Goose bottle service, champagne, shots and VIP seating (a $500 value).  You must enter by 10:30PM - winners will be announced at 11:30PM.  You must be present to win.

Also, keep your eye out for a 12BoC photographer or videographer out and about capturing the craziness of the night.  Show off your Christmas cheer and you might be lucky enough to make our highlight reel!

The entire bar list and specials are now available.  Click here for the specials (subject to change). 

Missed out on a 12BoC shirt? You are in luck!

Register online by 12/5 at 5PM for a wristband which will gain you entrance into this year's 12BoC and provide all of the same specials and entertainment as the 12BoC shirt including free cover, drink and food specials.  Just dress in your most festive Christmas attire along with your 12BoC wristband and you are all set. Wristbands will be held for pickup at Jackson's Hole on Friday, 12/5 from 3-6:30PM leading up to the 12BoC.  You must be able to pick up the wristbands at Jackson's Hole on Friday between 3-6:30PM.

No refunds on online orders.  You can order and pickup multiple wristbands for you and your group.  Wristbands are $25 and you must be 21 or older to participate.
