Art on the Rocks 2022

Art on the Rocks 2022





Art. Cocktails. Appetizers. Outside!

Get your tickets here! 

As the official kickoff to Old Town Cocktail week, Art on the Rocks 2022 challenges local mixologists and chefs to each create the most artistic cocktail & appetizer pairing, inspired by a piece of art by a local Art League artist.

Art on the Rocks is a festive fundraiser that help support the local arts community while spotlighting our fabulous local bar restaurants right here in Alexandria.

Art on the Rocks ticket holders will get to sample all of the delicious pairings and vote for their favorite during the event. A panel of experts will crown the winners of the most creative cocktail, appetizer, and artwork pairing, and announce the crowd favorite.

Please join us for some artistic fun in Waterfront Park behind the Torpedo Factory Art Center on the Strand—delicious cocktail & food pairings, lively music, and imaginative art, all while supporting The Art League and our local business community!

Bring your sense of creative adventure and your social distancing skills!
