JAZZ AGE LAWN PARTY

               2020 brings about two incredible milestones for JAZZ AGE LAWN PARTY:

              Our 15th Anniversary, and the official

               “RETURN OF THE TWENTIES”

 

The ‘20s were fabulous frenzy, discovery and rebellion. 

The passing of Prohibition in 1920 triggered more than the guns of gangsters:

It was a golden age of art, thought and social progress. The discovery of the tombs of King Tuthankamen and Queen Nefertiti exploded Art Deco design and women’s fashion, blurring gender lines. Coco Chanel literally wore the pants, and women’s right to vote and the newfound freedom of the affordable automobile

helped the now-bobbed flapper have the world for her oyster.

Dorothy Parker and Gertrude Stein joined the world’s most influential writers and minds and the hottest Jazz rang down from the hills of Harlem. All of this and more will be celebrated at the most glamorous and entertaining event of the summer.

 

To commemorate, we are hosting ONE WEEKEND only: August 29/30.

That’s right; be there or be a dodecahedron!

 

Jazz Age Lawn Party is the world’s original and largest Prohibition Era inspired gathering. Originating in 2005 as a small gathering on NYC’s Governors Island, we have since grown into one of New York City’s most beloved, and longest running, events. This historically sold out event attracts thousands of time travelers each year, who come together to discover the music and zeitgeist of the 1920s. Consistently selected by the New York Times as one of the year’s most memorable events, Jazz Age Lawn Party offers the unique, interactive opportunity to relive one of the most colorful and formative epochs in American history. This is the original, and official Jazz Age Lawn Party, founded and hosted by

Michael Arenella & His Dreamland Orchestra.
