Sacramento Cocktail Week (SCW) is a special week-long celebration (September 10th to September 17th) uniting local bartenders, fine spirits, fresh products, and artisan cocktails. SCW was founded in 2008 by local cocktail enthusiasts Erick Castro and Joe Anthony Savala in order to celebrate Sacramento’s artisan cocktail movement.

SCW events are hosted in bars, restaurants, and other venues throughout Sacramento. There are different events at different venues each day. Please see the Events section of this site for further details.

EVENTS: Some SCW events are free and others have a cost. The cost for each event is set by the event host. Check out the events page to see the details for each event, including the cost.

Depends: If an event has limited seating, you will need to reserve/purchase your ticket according to the event’s instructions. Many events will not require an RSVP, in which case you can just show up and enjoy. However, checking the SCW Website, Facebook, or Twitter will allow you to stay up-to-date with SCW.

SCW encourages responsible drinking. Please call one of the area cab companies to stay safe or download the Uber app.
