One of our fave events every year, the Pink Tie Party in just a few weeks away! Check out our coverage from last year.


Celebrate the blossoms in style at the National Cherry Blossom Festival’s signature Pink Tie Party fundraiser presented by ANA on Friday, March 18 from 7-11 p.m. hosted by Trade Center Management Associates at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center (1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW). The event helps kick off springtime and the 2016 season of the blossoms.

Attendees in their finest “Pink Tie” cocktail attire will enjoy an evening filled with music, dancing, cocktails and delicious fare from the Reagan Building’s Executive Chef Xavier Deshayes and some of DC’s hottest restaurants, including: Agora Restaurant, Asia Nine, Carmine’s, Claudia’s Steakhouse, FIG & OLIVE DC, iCi Urban Bistro, Pinstripes, Praline Bakery & Bistro, STK Washington DC, and more. Guests will have the opportunity to imbibe specialty beverages including Mizu shochu and choice labels from MJS Sake Selections in a modern interpretation of a hanami (cherry blossom viewing) presented by LandDesign.

A spectacular silent auction contributes to fundraising efforts, including airfare on All Nippon Airways, as well as unique dining, concert, sporting, and theater experiences. Proceeds benefit the National Cherry Blossom Festival, Inc., a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, and help keep programming primarily free and open to the public.

Individual admission is $225 per person. VIP admission, $300 per person, includes early access from 6-7 p.m. and exclusive amenities throughout the evening.

The Pink Tie Party is presented by ANA, a Festival Leadership Circle Sponsor and the largest airline service in Japan.
