Event Overview
Join Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Tennessee at the fourth annual Big Heights Rooftop Crawl, presented by Pipe Wrench Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, Inc. on October 17, 2019. This year’s event is Halloween-themed! 

Attendees will once again crawl the roofs high above downtown Knoxville sampling a wide variety of delicious food and beverages and jamming to live music in their festive Halloween costumes. We’re still confirming rooftops, but you can plan on visiting Langley Garage, Downtown 211, Scruffy City Hall, the newly-renovated Preservation Pub, and — new this year — Hyatt Place Downtown Knoxville. Your ticket will include appetizers, four drinks, music, Halloween-themed fun, and more!

This year’s theme will be Halloween, and we strongly encourage guests to wear their costumes. There will be prices for best solo costume, best couples costume, and best group costumes. Need inspiration? Check out photos from last year’s event!

Important note: The 2018 BHRC sold out in record time — we encourage you to buy tickets early!
