Good News! #TBOX2021 will be DECEMBER 11, 2021 Pending City of Chicago Approval… Festa Parties Inc. has prepared its permit for submission to the City in June. We have been working with the Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce to monitor the situation and do all we can to conduct #TBOX in a safe manner for all participants and workers at the event.
Last year, in 2020, #TBOX2020 was cancelled and the beloved, iconic event which had been held every year in Chicago since 1996 sadly did not take place. However, we are on track to conduct Festa’s 25th Annual Twelve Bars of Xmas on Saturday, December 11, 2021, in the Wrigleyville Neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois.
For more information on when tickets will go on sale, and general information about the event, please follow our social media links at the top of this site, or please contact Festa Parties Owner/Founder Christopher Festa, and we’ll get back with you as soon as we can!
We are excited to conduct the 12 Bars of Xmas in 2021 and to do so in a safe and responsible manner, that will be fun for all participants, and bring business to the fabulous bars, taverns, and restaurants of Wrigleyville, which we have patronized at our events since 1999. The TBOX event was founded in 1996 by Christopher Festa as a small event for friends in Lincoln Park. As word spread of Chris’s “12 Bars of Christmas” event, it grew to over 600 people and was moved to the larger bars of Wrigleyville in 1999, where it had been held every year through 2019. Sadly, the 25th anniversary TBOX was cancelled in 2020, but we have rescheduled it for 12/11/2021.
Save the Date – TBOX 2021 – December 11, 2021 – Wrigleyville, Chicago!
