Central West End Cocktail Party

June 8, 2019 | 5:00 – 10:00 p.m.

Join us on the streets of the Central West End for our 4th Annual CWE Cocktail Party! The Central West End is home of the first cocktail party on record — held in 1917 by Mrs. Julius S. Walsh Jr. in her home at 4510 Lindell. Each year, the CWE pays tribute to this important anniversary and celebrates the neighborhood history in style!

With our beautiful tree-lined streets as the backdrop, enjoy live entertainment, a spirited cocktail competition and, of course, delicious food and drinks available for purchase from participating CWE bars and restaurants.

Get ready to mingle, dance, sample and sip! This year’s event will feature swing dancers, fire dancers, unicyclists and more!

Guests won’t want to miss the spirited CWE Cocktail Competition starting at 6:00 p.m. near the Maryland end of the festival zone. Bartenders from throughout the neighborhood will compete in front of judges to be named “Best in the CWE.”

Thank you to our generous sponsors!
