On Saturday, July 6th, Marietta Main Street is hosting a Red, White & Brews Bar Crawl in Downtown Marietta, with all funds raised going to support the Rivers, Trails, and Ales Festival coming up the second week of August.

“The bar and restaurant scene downtown is vibrant and active,” said Cristie Thomas, Interim Executive Director of Marietta Main Street. “We want locals to learn about all downtown has to offer, which includes a lot of fun and entertainment.”

In support of the upcoming 9th annual Rivers, Trails, and Ales Festival, all proceeds will go toward the mission of that event, which is to celebrate active lifestyles and showcase the beauty of our region’s outdoor activities, all while supporting southeast Ohio’s local economy. Participating bars and restaurants will offer specials for ticket holders from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. the day of the event.

Ticket holders will be able to pick up their tickets beginning at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Marietta Main Street office located at 204 Front Street. All ticket holders will receive an event guide and wristband, exclusive discounts at participating bars, exclusive access to food specials, and more. RTA Fan ticketholders will receive their exclusive 16 oz. aluminum pint glass with the 2019 RTA Festival artwork featured.

Participating restaurants and bars currently include The River Town Grill, Town House, The Galley, Over the Moon Pub & Pizza, Gator’s, and Boathouse BBQ, each offering themed specials and lots of fun for each and every ticket holder.

“This bar crawl is awesome because it reminds everyone that we have great local bars to support year round, that also carry awesome local beer, which helps sustain the circle of life for local small businesses,” said Jeremy Stackpole, RTA Festival Ales Director.

“So, taking part in the bar crawl is not just a no brainer from that perspective, but this one is especially great because it helps support a festival that gives so much back to the area,” said Stackpole.

Tickets are $15 online or $20 at the door the day of the event. For $10 more, individuals can purchase RTA Fan tickets which include an exclusive aluminum pint glass. A limited number of RTA Fan tickets are available.
