One of the most coveted events of the year was held this past weekend: the sweltering heat did not deter anyone from having a good time at the 11th annual Jazz Age Lawn Party sponsored by St-Germain.
Over 5,000 fabulous free-spirited flappers and well-dressed gents were transported back to the Roaring Twenties on Governors Island to relish in a day of live music, savory eats, and refreshing cocktails.
Host Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra continues to bring the Jazz Age back to life where party-goers enjoy a day of live music by his Dreamland Orchestra along with exciting performances by many spectacular talents including Gregory Moore and The Dreamland Follies, Roddy Caravaella & The Canarsie Wobblers, The Minsky Sisters, and many more.
Additional highlights on the day included the Charleston dance competition, the annual pie contest, the 1920s Motorcar Exhibition, and vintage shopping vendors including Prohibition Clothing, Screaming Mimis, and Goddess Godette.
St-Germain French elderflower liqueur was the signature spirit of the Lawn Party once again. Master mixologist Julie Reiner, owner of Brooklyn’s Clover Club, created the signature event cocktails, including crowd favorites, “Flappers Delight” and “Strike up the Band”.
