Black Hat Bash

Get your best black hat out and join us for a memorable night at the Water Works as we honor our Golden Heart of Variety nominees.

Put on your best black hat and join us for Variety’s signature Black Hat Bash event! On June 15, 2021, we will be honoring our 2020 Golden Heart of Variety award recipients at a beautiful outdoor space at Water Works in Philadelphia. This famous venue sits right on the waterfront and will provide an amazing setting to what is sure to be a spectacular night. A 4 hour top-shelf open bar, VIP valet parking, and a delicious spread for dinner will all be available to our guests for the evening. We also ask that you wear a black hat to fit in with the theme of the evening. No matter how eccentric your hat is we want to see everyone in black hats. So feel free to be creative! Come celebrate our three honorees and have some fun at our Black Hat Bash!
