Join The National WWII Museum, Eat Local Challenge (A Project of NOLA Food Policy Action Council), and The American Sector Restaurant & Bar as we celebrate Victory Gardens during the season of eating locally!

This year we’re highlighting the Museum’s newest special exhibition, The Real Image of War: Steichen and Ford in the Pacific, which will be open in the John C. Alario Special Exhibition Gallery will be open throughout the event. We are also welcoming a number of local distillers who will be competing for the best garden-fresh cocktail prepared with local ingredients inspired by WWII Victory Gardens and this year’s theme: Picture Perfect.

Sample the garden-fresh libations, learn how to make them at home, and vote for your favorite. Keeping with the garden-fresh theme, the American Sector Restaurant & Bar will be serving heavy hors d'oeuvres made with local ingredients that will wow and inspire many Instagram-worthy pictures.

Tickets are required and will sell out. The ticket price includes unlimited cocktail samples and heavy hors d'oeuvres. For more information, email Maggie Hartley, Director of Public Engagement, at
