The Annual Downtown Pub Crawl is planned for this weekend on Saturday, March 2. Presented by the New Belgium Brewing Company and the Greater Augusta Arts Council, this fun downtown tradition celebrates “Fat Saturday,” a prequel to Mardi Gras celebrations. The Pub Crawl is scheduled 8-11pm in Downtown, and participants can purchase their passports at the corner of 11th & Broad, starting at 6pm for $10. The first 500 participants get a free Commemorative T-shirt.
13 restaurants and bars will be participating as stops on the Pub Crawl passports, which participants must get stamped by Arts Council volunteers at each stop. When a participant finishes the passport, they are entered into a drawing for prizes provided by Beer Me Augusta. In addition for the chance to win the drawing, the passports allow for participants to get in free to any participating restaurant or bar all night – no cover.
Proceeds benefit the Greater Augusta Arts Council and support arts programming in Augusta, Georgia.
