Bassist Nimrod Speaks performs with drummer Leon Jordan Sr. during the Jazzy Jam Open Mic.

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.
