A Party Fit for Jay Gatsby
Who hasn’t fantasized about partying all night long Jay Gatsby style? With the next Roaring 20s just two years away, you might as well get a head start on making that fantasy a reality at the annual Jazz Age Lawn Party. This gala event brings thousands and thousands of revelers to Governors Island, just a quick ferry ride from Lower Manhattan, to eat, drink, and dance along to the biggest hits of the 1920s. You’ll find most attendees decked out in their snazziest Jazz Age attire, but don’t worry if you haven’t got a flapper dress or homburg hat on hand. There’s no dress code. You’re welcome to come as you are. Pack a picnic and blanket, or indulge in the many on-site food trucks and vendors. The party runs from 11 A.M. to 5 P.M. on August 25 and 26.
Location: Colonel’s Row on Governors Island
