+ The Festival Kick Off Party
In celebration of the sixth annual Westobou Festival, VIP patrons are invited to toast opening night by attending the signature kickoff party in the gardens of Sacred Heart Cultural Center. Join festival artists and fellow patrons for a french-inspired evening of hand-crafted cocktails furnished by the White Horse and delicious eats by Jennifer Shuford of Tastefully Yours.

+ VIP Music Experience
Before an evening in the VIP lounge during the highly anticipated JohnnySwim concert, VIP badge holders are invited to partake in pre-performance festivities at the Old Richmond Academy. Guests are invited to mix and mingle with festival artists inside of the whimsically transformed historical school. This provides the ideal opportunity to privately explore the projects and exhibitions inside the Klacsmann Gallery, all while sipping signature cocktails and enjoying musically inspired bites by Edward Mendoza of Kitchen 1454.

Before the Concert, guests are invited to park their cars in the luxury parking lot at the James Brown Arena. Golf Cars will transport patrons to and from the parking lot to the Parade Grounds before and after the event’s completion.

Inside the Lounge guests will enjoy complimentary fare and have access to a fullcash bar.
