White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner Weekend

Pre-parties to After-parties: A Photo Recap of the Merriment

by nancy_bagley

In a city that loves galas, soirees, brunches, luncheons, after-parties and festivities of all kinds, the White House Correspondents Association’s annual gathering is the ultimate bash. Not a royal coronation, mind you, but you do get the picture. And this year, it was back in full swing bigger than ever, with media, major government officials, Hollywood stars and more who gathered for two dozen events spread across four high-spirited days.

With thousands of photos taken from events spanning NBC, CBS, and Time to UTA, MPA/SAG-AFTRA, and CNN, we put together extensive coverage spotlighting the merriment behind the annual dinner itself while celebrating a free press and the next generation of journalists.
