Update – City of Chicago Denies Permit for #TBOX2020

Sadly, the City of Chicago has denied our permit to hold #TBOX2020, which would have been the 25th Annual TBOX (R), Festa’s Original Twelve Bars of Xmas, the World’s Largest, Longest-Running Holiday Bar Crawl, in Wrigleyville, Chicago.

Due to the ongoing city health crisis and situation, we were not granted the legal permit from Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s office that we get every year to hold the event safely and responsibly.  As the event involves the participation of dozens of independent bars, restaurants, and civic organizations, we are not able to proceed with the event, which was scheduled for 12/12/2020, which, as always, is the 2nd Saturday of December.

We hope to resume operations in 2021 with our Mardi Gras, Baseball, and other events, and have pegged DECEMBER 11, 2020 for the 25th Annual TBOX!  Save the Date!
