First Fridays is art, music, and cocoa in December. Come downtown Aurora and enjoy hot cocoa from 6 to 9 p.m. at our second annual Cocoa Crawl. Mugs are required for the Cocoa Crawl portion only, and are available for purchase for only $5 (ceramic) $10 (travel).

New this year: Purchase a $5 Cocoa Crawl 2019 button as your ticket for the event. A button and a mug are required to enjoy the Cocoa Crawl at participating venues. Purchased a mug last year? Then you just need a button along with your mug for the event.

Mugs sold out quickly in 2018; purchase your mug and button while you can! Locations listed below.

Warm up in downtown Aurora on Dec. 6!

To enjoy the second annual Cocoa Crawl, a blue custom Cocoa Crawl mug created by Stephanie Wheatley is required (the same mug from 2018!). Guests can purchase them for $5 while supplies last.
