Meet The Crawling Dead Halloween Bar Crawl: AKA Buffalo’s Biggest Halloween Party

Event, Seasonal

It’s official: Buffalo’s biggest and best Halloween street party is back for another year! 

The Crawling Dead: Halloween Bar Crawl is a choose-your-own-adventure style bar crawl hosted every year by the Step Out Buffalo team. More than just a boozy bar crawl, this event is an evening filled with tricks and treats (but mostly treats), plus fun surprises and giveaways all night long. 

In honor of it being the event’s 4th year we’re going all out. Because the only thing better than one Halloween party is a whole street full of ‘em. 


Here’s everything you need to know:

On the day of the event, check-in begins at 7PM and runs until 10PM. Pro-tip: The actual Crawl goes all night long – so pace yourself

Your first stop will be our check-in at Hertel Poutine & Cream’s parking lot to grab your wristband and a map, receive some free swag from the team, and – most importantly – get your photo taken at the official photo booth before heading out.

Once you’ve properly documented your costumes for the ‘gram, it’s time to start crawlin’ to all the best bars on Hertel. Explore all of the participating bars in whatever order you want— your bar crawl wristband will get you into every bar with no cover charge plus drink specials and exclusive crawl perks at each spot. 

Throughout the night you’ll also have the opportunity to win prizes and door treats, enter exclusive giveaways, and enter the Costume Contest if you dare
