Jazz Age Lawn Party is an essential annual summer stop for revelers looking to dance in the open air. Governors Island is the perfect venue to leave the 21st century behind for the delights of the Prohibition-era (including “speakeasy” booze). Dress the part with festive, period-appropriate attire, and come ready to dance at the Jazz Age Lawn Party.
