The Jazz Age Lawn Party is a Prohibition-era-inspired gathering that celebrates the music, fashion and culture of the 1920s on Governors Island in New York City. It started in 2005 as a small event and has grown to be one of the most memorable and authentic experiences of the year. It is hosted by Michael Arenella & His Dreamland Orchestra, the world’s premier Jazz Age dance orchestra.
The event features live jazz music on two stages, a sprawling dance floor, and performances by various artists and dancers. It also offers a variety of activities such as 1920s-style photo ops, gourmet drinking and dining, croquet, vintage car exhibition, barber shop, rose lounge, and more.
