Step Back In Time

August 05, 2019

Dress-up in your finest 1920s garb and spend a languid summer's afternoon dancing, drinking, and celebrating the Jazz Age. Hosted on the green lawns of Governors Island, The Jazz Age Lawn party is now in its 14th year. Step back in time to the bygone era on August 24th and 25th. From jazz performances to Charleston lessons to lazy games of croquet, this event will transport you to one of the most popular periods in American history. Sip on Prohibition Era-style cocktails while snapping memorable photos. Julie Reiner, JALP’s beloved mixtress, is returning with her menu of “Clover Club Collection” cocktails. It’s one of the most authentic examples of jazz-centric activities. If you’ve ever fantasized about what it would be like to party in the 1920s, now is your chance. It’s one of the most memorable events of the year!
