The Walters Gala & Party is a memorable event unlike any other in Baltimore. Last year’s event sold out so get your tickets early!

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 over 148,000 people, including over 75,000 visitors who participate in education programs and 38,000 PreK–12 students and teachers. The Gala provides vital unrestricted support that is more important now than ever before to ensure all people in our community can connect with art, the humanities, and with each other.

The Gala

Guests begin the evening with a cocktail reception at 6 p.m. on the Sculpture Court, followed by a three-course gourmet dinner served in the galleries. While dessert is being finished, the Party has just begun. Gala guests are encouraged to stay and enjoy music or a nightcap in the after-dinner lounge. It’s a perfect evening with friends, colleagues, or clients.

The Party

Beginning at 9 p.m., Party guests enjoy an open bar, light fare and desserts, and dancing on the Sculpture Court. It’s a perfect evening with friends, colleagues, or clients. Don’t miss one of Baltimore’s most anticipated events and get your tickets today!
