Jazz Age Lawn Party at Governors Island

Step off the ferry and swing into the glamorous Roaring Twenties at the 19th annual Jazz Age Lawn Party. On June 8 and 9, and again on Aug. 10 and 11, Governors Island is transformed into a dazzling spectacle reminiscent of a bygone era. The best part? Residents of the One Manhattan Square condos are just a brief boat ride away from the heart of the event. So, don your finest flapper dress or crispest pinstripe suit and join crowds of thousands at a gathering the New York Times hails as one of the year’s most memorable events. From the band’s first note to the final twirl on the dance floor, the party promises an unforgettable blend of merriment and nostalgia.

Founded and hosted by Michael Arenella & His Dreamland Orchestra, the Jazz Age Lawn Party is a heartfelt homage to the 1920s. Under Arenella’s baton, the orchestra delivers authentic, soul-stirring performances that capture the Jazz Age’s essence. Music is the heartbeat of the event, setting a vibrant tone for a day filled with dance and delight. Let yourself and your feet be swept away with classic steps like the Charleston and the Lindy Hop. If you’re looking to perfect your footwork, professional dancers will be on hand to provide lessons.

Venture beyond the dance floor to discover a plethora of attractions that capture the festive spirit of the era. Vintage car enthusiasts will marvel at the collection of restored flivvers and Tin Lizzies, true embodiments of 1920s automotive innovation. The younger set can enjoy carnival games in Kidland, while everyone can capture memories in the Paper Moon photo booths. And for those who fancy themselves master pie makers, the High Court of Pie Contest is your chance to showcase your skills.

Culinary delights abound to satisfy all palates. While you’re welcome to order a picnic basket or bring your own, the Gourmet Picnic Market features an array of NYC’s finest food trucks for convenient dining. You can also enjoy a cold pint from the beer garden or a retro summery cocktail from one of the bars, ensuring refreshing beverages to complement the day.
