Get ready to enjoy a weekend for history buffs and art lovers alike. On Saturday and Sunday, Governors Island will be hosting the 10th Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party in Colonels Row for the second time this season. Experience a roaring twenties family friendly garden party that features a live jazz orchestra as well as vintage vendors, dance lessons, games, food, drink and more. Get dolled up like a flapper and learn the Charleston or sit back with a cold drink and enjoy the music. With activities ranging from laid back to in full swing, this event is sure to have something for everyone. Tickets are required but can be purchased in advance or on Colonels Row Saturday or Sunday.
On Sunday, come to Nolan Park to see The Plantation, a new adaption of Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard, set during Reconstruction, Virginia 1870, and staged on Governors Island by adaptor/director Claire Beckman. Nolan Park is also the site for many exhibitions so make sure to check them out before or after viewing this performance!
