Why was High Caliber Events created?
- High Caliber Events, a boutique multicultural experiential agency, was created out of a need to create inclusive and multicultural brand activations that were created by producers of color. Our mantra is, “We curate events for the soul and from the heart.”
Where did the inspiration of wanting to create a High Caliber Events come about?
- I saw a need in the industry based on the people who were creating brand activations that were attracting the communities, but there was never any representation at major marketing and ad agencies. We are an agency that advocates, hires, and creates campaigns that these communities could relate to.
The company High Caliber is straight to the point and easy to remember -how did you come up with the name?
- We wanted an elevated look and feel, but an accurate representation of the work we wanted to deliver to the world. We want to deliver high caliber work and produce an experience that is meaningful, thought-provoking, and memorable in every way. One of the important pillars in curating an event or an experience is making it multi-sensory, and we aim to innovative in every way. That’s what a “high caliber event” represents to us.
What are the benefits for attending a High Caliber Events function?
- You will always get a wide range of audience
- You will always feel welcome
- You will always walk away emotionally inspired
- You will feel represented
Giving restrictions in the DMV are slowly lifting, what are some safety measures that is in place for High Caliber Events attendees?

Based on your Instagram post, we noticed there’s a pre-valentine’s day event coming up. Could you share more about the event and it’s purpose?
- Thank you for sharing and asking! We are super excited about these upcoming creative nights we are curating for Washingtonians. Magical Nights Out is a new creative series where we will host various fun events to bring the community back together. Love Pong is a special event at Spin that we are co-hosting and supporting our local venue with a fun night out filled with Ping Pong, board games, belly dancing, and lots of Instagram moments to share. We have our community partners @dcfray @districtfray and @titos coming out to play with us at Love Pong as well.
Love Pong has a romantic ring to it. What should single or couples expect from this event?
- Oooh! We are telling everyone that “Love is not just a couple’s sport.” Love Pong is an evening out where we are going to play games, dance to music by @DJTaylorSenpai, and just have a fun night out. We have specialty craft cocktails and menu that is specific for this event. Come ready to play and enjoy yourself with a crowd that likes to stay active in DC. This is for singles and couples! We are also offering 4 special VIP tables for groups that would like to reserve a table and have their own private space.
What differentiate Love Pong from another Pre-Valentine’s Day event?
- What I love about SPIN is the spaciousness and how it never feels cramped. The food is amazing, and they have great vegetarian options on the menu. One of the main differentiators is the ability to stay engaged and play games all night. The vibe is going to make you feel like a kid again, but with adult food, drinks, and music!
