Jazz Age Lawn Party

June 13 – August 16, 2015

Governors Island

New York Harbor
Manhattan, NY 10004


The Governors Island ferry will feel like a time machine for these two weekends in June and August, filled with flappers and swells heading to the biannual Jazz Age Lawn Party. This celebration of 1920s style and culture takes over Admiral’s Row lawn as folks in period dress gather to listen to old Victrolas spinning 78s and sip summery gin cocktails. There will also be performances by the Dreamland Orchestra led by Michael Arenella (the founder and organizer of the event), the Minsky Sisters tap dancers and jazz singer Queen Esther, paying vocal tribute to the tunes of the era. Guests are encouraged to bring a blanket, a picnic and dress to the nines (like it’s pre-October 1929).
