Rich & Bennett's Annual St. Patrick's Day Pub Crawl

Map1235 W. Morehead St.
Charlotte, NC 28208
  • Arts & Culture


Bar crawls are all the rage now, but there are none bigger than Rich & Bennett’s St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl. In 2009, the Travel Channel declared it as the world’s largest, and this March, in its twelfth year, the crawl drew a record 15,144 attendees. If you were in uptown, you saw a sea of green T-shirts (the shirt is the ticket into bars) as the crowd bounced among thirty participating bars from noon to night. Most attendees can’t tell you what Rich or Bennett look like, but with so much booze flowing, they don’t care.
