The Second Annual Jazz Age on the Delaware will take place on July 30 at Glen Foerd, a historic mansion and estate. Guests will be transported back to the 1920s for a full day of dancing and live music -- plus a pie baking contest and a Roaring '20s fashion contest.
The day begins at 11 a.m., with a full schedule of jazz music and dance performances. Tickets to attend are $45 per person for general admission. Children under 12 can attend for free.
There is also an option to buy Preservation Society tickets, which include a tented venue with views of the stage, dance floor, rose garden and mansion. The upgraded tickets also include a private bar, two complimentary drinks, an exclusive menu and private dance lessons.
Dance lessons for general admission ticket holders begin at noon, with the private dance lessons at 11:30 a.m.
Attendees are invited to pack a picnic lunch, but there will be food trucks on site, too. Those with dogs can bring their canine companions on leashes.
Vintage vendors, a mobile cigar lounge, antique cars, classic cocktails and a pop-up barber shop will also be on-site.
The jazz-era throwback event is a fundraiser for the restoration of Glen Foerd’s historic garden house.
