Tales of the Cocktail 2021 (Virtual)

Tales of the Cocktail Foundation (TOTCF) is pleased to announce the dates for Tales of the Cocktail® 2021 (TOTC). The world’s largest cocktail conference will return for its 19th year from September 20 – 23, 2021

TOTC2020 marked the Foundation’s first foray into converting its annual festival into a digital conference, a decision born out of necessity due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. For 2021, the Foundation is offering a digital format once again to prioritize the health and safety of its attendees and ensure a global audience has complimentary access to participate in its programming. While the festival will largely be digital in September, the Foundation is leaving the door open for local activations in global markets wherever it proves both safe and valuable for attendees.


In a five day celebration of cocktails and culture, Tales of the Cocktail brings together some of the most well-known, respected minds in mixology. This annual event features cocktail tastings, mixing competitions, dinners, field trips to local distilleries and seminars by top mixologists. Meant for professionals and enthusiasts alike, it’s a great opportunity to network or to pick the brains of your favorite mixologists. Many brands also make an appearance to showcase their latest products. There’s something for everyone.

In other words, if you get excited about cocktails, then this is the place for you.

And what better place to celebrate the cocktail than New Orleans? According to legend, New Orleans is the birthplace of the first cocktail - the Sazerac. Still popular in the city today, the Sazerac was supposedly first mixed by a pharmacist named Antoine Amadee Peychaud in the early 19th century.  If true, there’s no better city for a cocktail fan than The Big Easy.

Ticket prices vary depending on what events you would like to attend.   For more information on and tickets to Tales of the Cocktail, visit their website.
