TBOX® Bar Crawls Announces Collaboration with Chicago 20 Something for The Original Twelve Bars of Xmas and Mardi Gras Bar Crawls!

Festa Parties, Founders and Producers of the iconic TBOX®, The Original Twelve Bars of Xmas Bar Crawl in Wrigleyville, Chicago, are pleased to announce a collaboration for ongoing events with leading Chicago event producer, Chicago 20 Something. The 2 companies will work together ongoing for the event marketing and production of the TBOX® and Mardi Gras (formerly “BeadQuest”) pub crawls, beginning with #TBOX2022 on December 10, 2022, and The next Wrigleyville Mardi Gras Bar Crawl on February 18, 2023, and continuing ongoing annually for the two events. Working together, Chicago’s 2 leading pub crawl production companies will combine forces to keep these original Chicago Christmas and Mardi Gras bar crawls the marquee events they’ve been through the years, providing professionally organized, fun, creative, and safe party events for attendees, while continuing to drive business to the locally owned taverns and restaurants that have loyally participated in their bar crawls throughout past two decades.  Festa Parties and Chicago 20 Something will also continue to work closely with and donate a portion of event proceeds to the Lakeview East Community Partnership non-profit organization. Together, the 2 companies have donated over $500,000 to local charities and will continue to give back to the community in the coming years!

About Festa Parties and TBOX®:

Chicagoan Christopher Festa started a small Christmas pub crawl for a few friends in 1996, and over time, TBOX® grew to be the world’s largest, longest-running holiday bar crawl, serving over 225,000 costumed crawlers over 25 years. Mr. Festa is recognized as an originator of the commercial bar crawls, putting his unique creativity to work to make his events dynamic and memorable experiences. Festa Parties Incorporated (TBOX® Bar Crawls) has produced TBOX® as a commercial enterprise since 2003. After a pandemic hiatus, TBOX® returned for its 25th Anniversary in December, 2021 with its “Back to the 90s” theme, and for TBOX® 2022, will feature a “Back to the 2000’s” theme.  Also, Festa and Chicago 20 Something will co-produce Festa’s Mardi Crawl after its pandemic formerly known as “BeadQuest”, Chicago’s first Mardi Gras crawl, first held in 2009.

TBOX® has been featured extensively in media such as FOX, CBS, ABC, CLTV, and WCIU TV, WGN Radio, Sun-Times, Chicago Tribune, RedEye, Thrillist, Chicagoist, TimeOut, and more, and has been a rite of passage and legendary day of partying for Chicagoland’s young adults for more than a generation!
