World Cocktail Week® will be celebrated this year from May 6 – 13th with fundraising events
planned in cities around the world.
World Cocktail Week® was established to promote better understanding and appreciation of the art of
the cocktail and its history, and responsible drinking. The date commemorates the first definition of
the term Cocktail in print in the 1806 edition of The Balance and Columbian Repository.
The WCW fundraiser also raises much needed revenue to help pay for museum operating costs throughout the
year and for our mixology series.
Museum sanctioned WCW venues using the MOTAC Seal are expected to feature products from our sponsors and
donate at least 10% of proceeds from their event to the Museum. We are very grateful for this support.
You can find a submission form to provide details of your event here.
WCW 2011 is shaping up into one of the most expansive celebrations to date!
