Down Town Fall Crawl
Saturday, September 23, 2023
122 South Oakland Street, Gastonia, NC, USA
We have a fun, unique experience planned for folks that participate in the crawl. The idea is to provide an opportunity for everyone to check out each of our individual businesses and see first-hand how there really is something for everyone in Downtown. The five businesses participating are Cavendish Brewing Company, The Rooster, Gaston Pour House, Freeman’s Irish Pub and CityCade. Each location will be offering drink specials and entertainment throughout the night. Some are giving away prizes and swag at the door, and others have donated gifts and prizes for individuals who complete the crawl by patronizing all 5 stops. Each location will have punch cards for people to keep track of their stops. After the crawl, there will be a drawing for the prizes.
To make this event even bigger, three of the stops will have vendors on site with unique gifts, hand crafted goods, collectibles, art, etc adding to the ambiance and the overall sense of community.
According to the participating businesses, there is no “right or wrong” way to complete the crawl, you can bounce around however you see fit. However, we do have a suggested route to follow, and the hope is that most people will follow the route. We would love to see a large crowd at each of our businesses each hour. Below is the “suggested schedule”
6pm -7pm: Cavendish
7pm - 8pm: The Rooster
8pm - 9pm: Gaston Pour House
