The County is developing recommendations on ways to manage “bar crawls.”
Large-scale, for-profit bar crawls are a new phenomenon to Arlington County. The first bar crawl was held in March 2013. To date, events have spanned the distance from Glebe Road at Wilson Blvd. through the Clarendon area to the Courthouse area. The events are becoming more popular and the County expects that demand for events will grow. The events have had an impact on Police and other County services. Initial conversations with the community, promoters and business owners have been productive. All parties are supportive of the crawls, provided some management of the events is put in place.
County staff are developing recommendations for Arlington County Board consideration on ways to manage “bar crawls.” We want to know what you think and want your input as we develop policy recommendations.
