Pub Crawl castEvery Faire Day

The Pub Crawl

Play the best beer game this side of 1599 and party like a Royal at Bristol's legendary Pub Crawl. Join the loud and lusty pub crawl crew, skip long lines as they personally amuse you along the village streets to several fine taverns and public houses. Try not to spill as you jiggle with merriment at the most bodacious songs, jests, jokes, stories and riddles the shire has to offer. Travel with your own bartender, for immediate service, and choose from more than 20 beers on tap or a delicious mead as you go. We also offer a gluten free cider. FOUR alcoholic drinks are included in the Pub Crawl - one at each pub.


The Pub Crawl departs at 11 a.m., 12 p.m., 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays. The Pub Crawl departs at 12 p.m., 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets are $35. Half the tickets for each crawl are available online, the other half are available for purchase on the day of the crawl on a first-come basis. Pub Crawl tickets purchased online must be redeemed at the Will Call Window in the Box Office to receive your wristband.

You may only Crawl once per day!


The Pub Crawl sells out quickly. Day-of tickets will be available at Guest Services until noon - then at the Red Wagon in the RenQuest camp until 2:30. We recommend online purchase before you arrive at Bristol to guarantee your spot. A ticket to the Pub Crawl does not include admission to The Bristol Renaissance Faire. You will need an admission ticket and a Pub Crawl ticket if you wish to join the Pub Crawl.


Must be 21 to participate (IDs will be checked for everyone). Children are not permitted on the Pub Crawl. Please drink responsibly, we like return customers!

Hey kids!  Looking for an exciting adventure while visiting Bristol?  Join Winken, Blinken and Nod as they frolic through the town of Bristol searching for clues to the hidden treasure.

Specifically for our players aged 4-10, these 20-30 minute quests begin at the RenQuest™ Camp twice daily (2pm & 4pm) and cost $5 per child to play.
