Dardanella NAS: The Great Gatsby Lawn Party
The Hermitage Home of President Andrew Jackson
Sat, Sep 16 11:00 am
With summer waning, come close it out in style and join us on the grassy knoll! Return to a simpler time of music, dancing, tasty treats, and savory libations. We bring you our inaugural event in Nashville, Tennessee! A chance to step back to the end of the 1st World War, the Volstead Act (in memoriam), Prohibition, Women’s Suffrage, and the roaring sights and sounds of the 1920’s. Perched high atop a singular rolling hill, sprawled out on the manicured greens behind the Tulip Grove Mansion within the Andrew Jackson Hermitage estate, return to a bygone era of flapper dresses, boater hats, and the big band scores of the 1910's, 1920's, & 1930's. Period orchestras will warm up your feet or join in the dance lessons, performances and contests! Lawn games including croquet, bocce, and Tug O' War, a gigantic dance floor, vintage paper moon photo sets, food & beverage, specialty alcoholic Prohibition cocktail bars, and much more await! Period attire strongly encouraged.
