(10/14 Update: Check out the Advance Titan article about the pub crawl)
The 2010 Fall Oshkosh Pub Crawl was a grand success. No major problems were reported, the event went off without a hitch, and everyone had a blasty blast. We would like to thank all 2,100 participants and we hope that everyone will be participating in the 2010 Spring Oshkosh Pub Crawl in April.
If you have an awesome photo or 20 that you took during the crawl and would like to see it up on the site, use our UPLOADER. If your photo is really cool we’ll use it in our pub crawl video, but you’ll have to submit soon.
You also might have noticed a slight design change to the site. Special thanks to Lauren Christine for submitting an awesome/artistic pic of main street that is now used as the background. Brett Favre sent in a couple photos, but we couldn’t use them… they were too small.

Every year we say this, but every year a very select few make bad decisions and bring a bad light on the Pub Crawl. Last year 2 people out of 2000 got in fight and it was all the local news could talk about. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be responsible. The whole point of this crawl is to have fun with your friends, check out new bars, and experience a festive atmosphere. This is NOT a drinking contest and we want you to drink responsibly. Below is a direct quote from an official document that was sent out to all Oshkosh Police patrolling the event.
The major problem for this event will be alcohol related crimes and ordinance violations. Another problem with this event in the past has been participants running into traffic along N. Main St. Officers will take a proactive approach in enforcing pedestrian violations along with other quality of life ordinances such as Disorderly Conduct, Urinating in Public, Open Intoxicants, and Littering. Officers should also be cognizant of the ongoing N. Main St. construction, as that may present issues such as Theft and Trespass on to a Construction Site. See the end of this document for a listing of possible ordinances that may be violated during this event, and their corresponding bond amounts.
As of 10-7-10, N. Main Street is closed to North/South traffic. The pedestrian issues that have been observed for other Pub Crawls will not be present and Officers will have a hard time enforcing any crosswalk violations since N. Main St. is closed and a lot of people will be crossing midblock. With no traffic, this should not be an issue. Officers should monitor the area though so that pedestrians are not standing in the roadways so that the street does not turn into a “beer garden” mentality. Note that any Open Intoxicants violations should be strongly enforced.
Please also note that officers will not be allowed to take photos with you anymore and be respectful of the officers patrolling Main Street. They are there for your protection as well as the protection of property.
Have fun, be safe!
If you received an e-mail or phone call to pick up your shirts the place and times are listed below. Once all the shirts are done being printed we will post an announcement on this website.
Where: Barley & Hops on Main Street
When: Thursday (6 – 9pm), Friday (3 – 8pm), Saturday (Noon – 5pm)
Sorry, but shirt orders have ended. There are no exceptions to this rule because anytime after now and the shirts will not be ready in time for the crawl.
If you did not pay via PayPal or using your credit/debit card then you didn’t fully place your order and it was cancelled.
For all of you who did place there order: We have already started printing out many of the shirts. Shirts will be available for pick up Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. You will be contacted via e-mail or phone (whatever you picked) when your shirts are ready for pick up.
So far it looks like this years 2010 Fall Oshkosh Pub Crawl will be as awesome as ever. The 2010 Spring Oshkosh Pub Crawl’s size caught a lot of bar owners by surprise, but this year we are ready to go. This years crawl will be about the same size as last years, but now bar owners should be adequately staffed.
- Shirts are still on sale. You have until October 5th at 11:00pm. Don’t wait until the last minute, because if there is a problem with your order there is no time to fix it.
- We are still updating the SCAVENGER HUNT sheet. Feel free to comment on that page if you have an idea of what should be added. It should be ready to print before the crawl.
- We are going to be posting a safety update from the Oshkosh Police soon.
