Sixth Annual Pub Crawl set for Feb. 27, registration now open


The Natchitoches Young Professionals (NYP), an initiative of the Natchitoches Area Chamber of Commerce, is set to host its 6th annual NYP Pub Crawl Saturday, Feb. 27 in downtown Natchitoches. The NYP Pub Crawl is open to anyone over the age of 21 with a valid driver’s license.

This crawl is also a Poker Run, with prizes awarded to the best poker hand, best individual costume and best group costume at the end of the night. Additional door prizes will be drawn throughout the evening (all crawlers who turn in a completed poker card are eligible for prizes).

This event will be following the mask mandate and social distancing guidelines put into place by the state of Louisiana. All participants are encouraged to bring their own blanket or tarp for the concert and wear a mask throughout the event.

Each crawler will receive an event t-shirt, goody bag, and access to food and drink specials. Registration is $30 per person until Feb. 12, $35 per person starting Feb. 13, and $40 per person after Feb. 26. Active members of NYP may contact the Chamber office to receive their $5 discount code. Visit to register.

An NYP Pub Crawl packet pick-up will be Friday, Feb. 26 at Brewhouse Bistro (108 Mill St.) from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. Registrants will be able to pick up their registration packets & t-shirts at that time. Those not able to pick-up at the Brewhouse Bistro will be able to check-in as early at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 27 at the Natchitoches Riverbank Stage. Crawlers must complete their crawl and turn in their poker cards by 7 p.m. at the riverfront stage. This year’s Finisher’s Concert will feature the Hollow Decks, a 90s cover band from Shreveport.
