An event to help out a Loveland charity will bring thick flannel, thin flannel, plaid flannel, plain flannel, but definitely plain old fun.

Loveland loves its little festivals, including a good ol' fashioned pub crawl. Load up your Uber account, put on your 'coolest' and warmest flannel and get to Downtown to enjoy the Colorado weather and imbibe some 'winter warmers' along the way.

The 4th Street Flannel Fest Pub Crawl (Winter Flannel Fest) will stop at five bars in Downtown Loveland, between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on January 22, 2022.


  • Official 'bib.'
  • One free drink at each of the five bars.
  • The Bars: Loveland Tap & Tavern, Burk's Tavern, Scripted Bar & Kitchen, West End Lounge, AKA Kitchen.
  • One custom-made coaster.
  • Free food at end of crawl.

Who Does it Benefit?

I have some flannel shirts, but they are more 'business' flannel. I need to get 'rugged' flannel for my wardrobe, and to be better fitted for this event. I wonder which color will dominate the event? Red? Blue?

The event is put on by Sweetheart City Racing; they have a van that they call 'Berniece.' They are always using it to haul items they collect for the different charities that they assist.
