ROCHESTER COCKTAIL REVIVAL |RCR|

is New York State's only annual, weeklong spirits festival, currently in its tenth year. Since its inception in 2014, RCR has grown to include 20+ craft cocktail bars to present 15+ pairing dinners, 40+ parties, a daytime spirit tasting event, hands-on educational seminars, live music, a themed gala, interactive entertainment at arts venues, and the climactic Bar Room Battle Royale between local mixologists.

The 2014-22 editions of the Rochester Cocktail Revival drew attendees from around New York State and the U.S. Estimated attendance has multiplied from 2,000 enthusiastic imbibers in 2014 to more than 15,000 in 2022. RCR also attracts spirit professionals from all over New York State, as well as many out-of-state contributors. Past speakers, presenters and judges include such liquid luminaries as David Wondrich, Dale DeGroff, Lynnette Marrero, Lynn House, Steven Soderbergh, Gaz Regan, Noah Rothbaum, Robert Simonson, Ashtin Berry, Ivy Mix, Eamon Rockey and more.

And with a program roster that has grown to encompass 70+ events over the course of the week, RCR is a significant economic driver for downtown Rochester. RCR is produced by a team of Rochester entrepreneurs proficient in hospitality, design, operations, photography, videography and marketing. A portion of proceeds from each Rochester Cocktail Revival benefits our official charity partner, Cancer Support Community at Gilda's Club Rochester, which provides programs and support for adults, teens and children living with cancer. To date, RCR has raised more than $140,000 for CSC at Gilda's Club.
