TBOX 2019, Chicago's Original 12 Bars of Xmas in Wrigleyville, The World's Largest, Longest-Running Christmas / Costume / Charity Bar Crawl!

Discounted Early Bird Tickets On Sale Now for TBOX 2019 - Festa's 24th Annual, Original Twelve Bars of Xmas. On Saturday, December 14, starting at 10AM, over 30 venues will be participating in our annual festival. A portion of every ticket sold will benefit the Lakeview East Community Partnership, a great local charitable organization. Join us in helping spread holiday cheer in our beautiful city of Chicago!

This Year's TBOX Theme is MEMES! We'll have meme picture frames, meme scavenger hunts, and a bunch of other meme related activities. As always, we're encouraging all participants to dress up in their most festive Santa suits. Red, green, a full blown santa suite or perhaps an ugly sweater - all are invited! Throughout the past two decades, we've had over 200,000 TBOX participants and we're excited to keep the good times rolling.
