This weekend, August 17 and 18, Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra invite you to the beloved Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governors Island. Now in its eighth year, the event has become the quintessential outdoor celebration of the Jazz Age and its living legacy. The event is said to be a dream of the 1920s nestled right in the heart of New York Harbor. Authentic 20’s outfits recommended – think Boardwalk Empire and the Great Gatsby.
