About the Jazz Age Lawn Party

The Jazz Age Lawn Party, now in its 11th year, is New York City’s original prohibition era inspired gathering. Hosted and conceived by Michael Arenella, the event started as a small gathering of about fifty friends and fans in 2005, who came together on Governors Island to revel in the music of the Jazz Age, as performed by Michael Arenella and His Dreamland. The event was carefully crafted and nurtured, growing into one of New York City’s most beloved summer events. This historically sold out event attracts 20,000 fans over two weekends, who come together to discover music and zeitgeist of the 1920s and 1930s, learn the hottest dance steps of the time, frolic in their flapper dresses and glad rags and enjoy sophisticated bites and vintage-inspired cocktails in a romantic, playful setting.

Consistently selected by the New York Times as one of New York’s most memorable events, the Jazz Age Lawn Party offers a unique, interactive experience. Two weekends a year, guests are invited to discover and experience one of the most colorful and formative epochs in American history.
