Lancaster City Bingo

Welcome to Lancaster City Bingo!

Hosted by the Lancaster Office of Promotion (Visit Lancaster City) & Lancaster City Alliance, Lancaster City Bingo is your chance to win prizes while supporting local restaurants and shops.

Can you get a bingo and support Lancaster City?

HERE’S HOW TO PLAY

1. Order from all the locations in any given row & take a picture of you enjoying the food, an item, or maybe even a selfie!

2. Once you have a Bingo, send your pictures by email to LOOP@cityoflancasterpa.com or send a direct message on Instagram to @visitlanccity with your pictures. Be sure to attach your marked card.

3. Every Bingo you submit will be entered in a drawing to receive a dining or shopping experience on us! ($50 in Downtown Dollars).

4. You can submit more than one entry. (Have 2 Bingos on one card? That is 2 entries for you!)

5. We will draw one winner every two weeks!

*(Please note that by submitting your pics, you agree to let us post them our websites and/or on social media.) New cards will be released on Visit Lancaster City & Lancaster City Alliance social media channels.
