How to Celebrate the Jazz Age in Style

June 05, 2018

Transcend your summer plans by heading to Governors Island for a swinging good time. Every year thousands of 1920’s enthusiast head to Governors Island to enjoy the annual Jazz Age Lawn Party. Dress up in your finest Jazz Age costumes for a day of retro dancing and cocktail sipping. Ride the charming ferry that leaves from Manhattan’s Financial District to attend the longest running event Governors Island has ever had. Step back in time to the Prohibition Era, where stylish flappers and sheiks rule the New York social scene, and a leisurely day of croquet is perfectly acceptable activity. Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra are headlining alongside the Dreamland Follies and the Canarsie Wobblers. Queen Esther and Peter Mintun will also be bringing their talents to the two-day event happening on June 16th and 17th.
