GiLLY WAGON creates the opportunity for the moments and memories that make truly great events. We do this by tending to the details and developing events that are both unique and true to those they are for. What you will not get when working with us is a cookie cutter event; it's your event and it should be as fetching as you are. 

 

Our Special Sauce

 

 We believe that the special sauce of every great event is the unexpected, teeny tiny details that differentiate events - and we have a commitment to hyper-focusing on every detail to create a phenomenal experience.

Seattle Cocktail Week

WHY WE LOVE IT:
We brought people from all over the world to Seattle to celebrate all things cocktail. Our inaugural year had 66 participating locations, over 200 participating spirits, and engaged over 5,000 Seattleites.

Be More Kind Day

WHY WE LOVE IT:
Sparked by the idea that kindness begins by coming together and starting conversations, Be More Kind Day was a city-wide social media initiative designed to get Seattleites talking. In partnership with Universal Music and musician Frank Turner, we made kindness trend.

Goonies 30th Anniversary

WHY WE LOVE IT:
Working in conjunction with Warner Brothers and the Astoria/Warrenton Chamber of Commerce, we lived out our childhood dreams by creating an event and interactive scavenger hunt that allowed guests to reenact the scenes from the movie.

Summerfeast

WHY WE LOVE IT:
We transformed an iconic Seattle space that most people would never consider as a leisure space into an enchanted pop-up dining experience.

Penumbra Beer Bash

WHY WE LOVE IT:
Music and beer are one of those great combinations like peanut butter and chocolate, Batman and Robin, Hall and Oats… you get the point.

Beard & Stache Fest

WHY WE LOVE IT:
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you got 100 bearded men excited about their own facial hair into fundraising for foster kids in King County? They would raise over $38,000 while participating in this month-long celebration full of karaoke, trivia nights, competitions, live music, and more.

Hot Sauce Fest

WHY WE LOVE IT:
We turned up the heat in Seattle by bringing the Pacific Northwest’s best hot sauce purveyors out to sample their goods, enjoy live music in the park, eat delicious food from food trucks, and wrap up the day with an outdoor showing of Nacho Libre.

Corporate Holiday Party

WHY WE LOVE IT:
We filled the Living Computer Museum + Labs with happy party-goers for a corporate holiday party like no other. Skipping the traditional stuffy corporate rigamarole, this event served up a family style fried chicken dinner, great drinks, and dancing into the night.
