Though we’re still two years away from the 2020s, we’re only weeks away from the 1920s. On August 25 and 26, from 11 A.M. to 5 P.M., thousands of partygoers will ferry over to Governors Island for the annual Jazz Age Lawn Party. Located just 800 yards off the tip of lower Manhattan, Governors Island is the ideal spot for a summer shindig. No particular attire is required, but you’ll find that most will be wearing period dress. You can even buy the perfect Roaring 20s outfit from the vendors at the event. Live bands will perform the biggest hits of the 1920s as celebrants dance, eat, drink, and make merry. You can pack your own picnic or sample the wares of the many food trucks on-site. Also, for the first time, you can order the Dreamland Gourmet Picnic tote, which will include a prepared meal, snacks, and a bottle of VieVité Rosé (properly chilled, of course). So break out your best Gatsby suit or Daisy dress, and head down to Governors Island for one of the jazziest parties of the year.
