Social City was created by the husband and wife duo of Chris & Lauren Surber. The company was founded a few years after the two met for the first time on a St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl in 2009 in Charlotte, NC. Chris & Lauren moved back to Ohio in 2011 and saw an opportunity to create a business based on the event that brought them together. Our mission is to create more social events to connect the great people in and around Columbus, OH!
Our signature event is an annual St. Patrick’s Pub Crawl that takes place on the Saturday of, or before St. Patrick’s Day. This event has grown into the largest St. Patrick’s Pub Crawl in Ohio with nearly 4,000 crawlers! We would like to sincerely thank everyone who has attended our events, and we hope to see you all again soon!
Social City Events is not a charity, but we do like to support local charities and non-profit organizations though our events. We have worked with some great local groups in the past and we are always looking for new groups/causes to support. Please contact us if you think we could help your organization. Thanks for checking out our site and we hope to see you at our next event!
There were only 83 crawlers the first year, but every year since the event has grown at an incredible pace. It is now the largest pub crawl in Ohio, and one of the largest in the world! We truly appreciate all of our crawlers over the years! We hope to keep this event going and growing for many years to come!
