11th Annual Arizona Cocktail Weekend
March 9, 2023 - March 13, 2023
The 11th annual Arizona Cocktail Weekend returns March 10 to March 13, with an expanded calendar of events thanks to the addition of another full day of spirited fun at venues in Downtown Phoenix.
AZCW is the state’s most prestigious, longest-running event dedicated to the art of cocktails. Traditionally hosted on President’s Day weekend, “Moving to March 10 to March 13 was a mindful decision to continue to grow the event, and also be able to bring in top talent, and accommodate guests, from around the world,” says co-founder Damon Scott.
“When we started this event 12 years ago, President’s Day weekend fell outside of the traditional tourism high season,” Scott says. “But now with the Arizona Super Bowl and the additional major events coming this February, we decided to move to March to make sure our hotel and bar partners could accommodate the 40-plus Top Bars and their teams that we’re bringing to town from across the globe. Not to mention, hotel rooms and event spaces for our other signature events, the Cocktail Carnival and the Last Slinger Standing bartending competition, plus the dozens of seminars, tastings and more hosted across downtown Phoenix.”
