“”Jazz Age Lawn Party, now celebrating its 14th year, is the world’s original and largest prohibition era-inspired gathering. The event started in 2005 as a small gathering on NYC’s Governors Island and has since grown into one of New York City’s most beloved events. This historically sold out event attracts thousands of time travelers each year, who come together to discover the music and zeitgeist of the 1920s. Consistently selected by the New York Times as one of the year’s most memorable events, Jazz Age Lawn Party offers a unique, interactive opportunity to relive one of the most colorful and formative epochs in American history.””
