Sips on the Skyline, now in its third year, is an evening celebration hosted by the Virginia War Memorial Foundation as a “Thank You” to friends and supporters.

This social, yet educational event offers guests a special opportunity to gather with like-minded friends, educators, and veterans who all share support of the Memorial and its mission.

The event takes place during Virginia Spirits Month at the Virginia War Memorial overlooking the downtown Richmond skyline and the James River. Sips on the Skyline features a band and dance floor, a dinner and dessert buffet, a beer and wine bar, and—of course—craft cocktails and spirit tastings presented by distillers across Virginia, several of which are veteran-owned businesses.


All tickets include after-hours access to the Memorial, tastings and specialty cocktails from all featured distilleries, beer & wine, buffet, live music, and garage parking.

Early Bird & Active Service Tickets: $100 (Early Bird Tickets available through August 31st.)

General Admission: $110 ($40 tax-deductible).
