Join us for official DC Cocktail Festival, an elevated craft cocktail tasting experience that aims to stimulate all of your senses. Come throw back some great food and enjoy live musical performances, all while sampling some of the best cocktails from the city’s best cocktail mixologists.

All craft cocktail tastings are included in your ticket. We believe in responsible alcohol service. You can sample cocktail tastings during your session time until and unless you show visible signs of intoxication, at which point service stops. To sample the cocktail tastings, you will be provided with a tasting card that you can use to redeem for each of the 15 cocktail samples.

The DC Cocktail Fest is a live event. Your ticket is allocated against venue capacity at purchase. All tickets are final sale and nonrefundable.

You have a choice between VIP tickets and GA tickets. VIP tickets get you in an extra hour earlier than GA (General Admission) tickets, and you get to continue to enjoy the event during the GA session. That's the only difference between the two ticket choices per Session.

Session 1 VIP: 12:00pm - 1:00pm (includes admission during GA)

Session 1 GA: 1:00pm - 3:00pm

Session 2 VIP: 3:30pm - 4:30pm (includes admission during GA)

Session 2 GA: 4:30pm - 6:30pm 

Session 3 VIP: 7:00pm - 8:00pm (includes admission during GA)

Session 3 GA: 8:00pm - 10:00pm 

A portion of ALL proceeds go to support the local nonprofits.
