Kwanza Crawl is a bar crawl through five Brooklyn neighborhoods that both celebrates the holiday of Kwanza and supports 16 black-owned businesses. Taking place Monday, December 26th, the crawl falls on the first day of Kwanza.

A one day event where people of the African diaspora join together to support the black owned bars in their neighborhood. Crawlers will be dressed in whatever makes them feel black and beautiful, for a day of unity, fellowship, and fun! […] It will support local, minority-owned businesses in the Bed-Stuy, Crown Heights, Prospect Heights, Fort Greene and Park Slope neighborhoods. The crawl is focused on the social aspect of building community, and facilitates the creation of economic empowerment within our community.

Kwanza Crawl is like the grown-up version of SantaCon… respectful adults in respectful attire enjoying some adult beverages while celebrating a meaningful holiday and supporting Brooklyn's black-owned businesses. Check out the event page for info on meet up times and locations.
