TBOX®, Founded in 1996 by Chicagoan Christopher Festa, is the World’s Largest and Most Spectacular Bar Crawl, taking place in Wrigleyville, Chicago, USA. #TBOX stands for the (T)welve (B)ars (O)f (X)mas, and is always the 2nd Saturday in December starting before Noon. Begun in 1996, TBOX has become the largest event of its kind in the world. TBOX has taken place 22 TIMES, and the the 23rd Annual TBOX Bar Crawl is set for Saturday, 12/08/18!
TBOX began as an informal outing for friends, and has grown from 60 people the first year to an average attendance of 12,000-16,000 people each year. Originally a sequential tour of 12 bars (based, of course, on the “12 Days of Christmas” carol), TBOX is now an all-day event including almost every bar near Wrigley Field. TBOX is now produced and operated by TBOX Bar Crawls.
TBOX and owner Christopher Festa have donated and raised over $262,000 in cash, clothing, toys and tons of cereal for local charities since 2009, including Lakeview Pantry and other worthy causes.
