Pink Tie Party returns March 22

Next week is the first day of spring and that means sunnier days and warmer weather. Although spring comes on Wednesday this year, stylish and savvy Washingtonians know that the real kick off to spring is the annual Pink Tie Party.

The Pink Tie Party is the official start of the Cherry Blossom Festival.  While the Cherry Blossoms are expected to peak between April 3 – 6, those who want  an earlier taste of the season know to head straight for this not to be missed celebration. This year’s party will be held Friday, March 22 from 7 to 11 pm at the Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center.

This year, party goers will enjoy specialty springtime cocktails served at an ARTECHOUSE Augmented Realty Bar in partnership with Roku Gin and Toki Suntory Whisky, as well as at an floral-inspired Ketel One Botanical Barn and at the Palm Whispering Angel Beverage Bike.

The Pink Tie Party is presented by ANA, the largest and only five-star airline in Japan. Attendees will get a virtual ANA experience through an immersive video booth, where they’ll have the chance to share their creation on social media to be entered to win two round trip tickets to Tokyo courtesy of ANA.

Restaurants will be sampling bites throughout the venue. Some of these include:
