Walters Gala & Party

Save the Date for the next Walters Gala & Party 2019

Saturday, October 19, 2019

The Walters Gala & Party is an event unlike any other in Baltimore. This exquisite annual event provides major funding for the Walters’ innovative education and exhibition programming and supports free admission for all. Every year, the Walters benefits more than 155,000 people, including over 70,000 visitors who participate in education programs and 30,000 PreK–12 students and teachers. The Gala & Party helps provide the vital support necessary for keeping our world-class collection and exhibitions free to all, and guarantees that we can continue to offer educational programs that stimulate lifelong learning and a love of art.

The Gala
6 p.m.–midnight

The evening begins with a cocktail reception on the Sculpture Court, followed by a three-course gourmet dinner served in the galleries. When dessert is finishing, the Party is just beginning. Guests will want to stay and enjoy music and a nightcap in the after-dinner lounge.

The Party

Party guests enjoy an open bar, light fare and desserts, and dancing on the Sculpture Court.
