The Roaring Twenties sure makes a good party theme. Last Saturday, St. Germain hosted yet another upbeat celebration—their 11th Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party. Over 5,000 well-dressed ladies and gentlemen made their way to Governor’s Island for a sunny day filled with food and signature French elderflower cocktails from St. Germain.


The festive get-together was hosted by musician, Michael Arenella and featured live music by his Dreamland Orchestra as well as performances by Gregory Moore and The Dreamland Follies, Roddy Caravella & The Canarsie Wobblers, The Minksy Sisters and more.


The festivities followed with the Charleston dance competition, annual pie eating contest, 1920s Motorcar Exhibition, and vintage shopping vendors including Prohibition Clothing, Screaming Mimis and Goddess Godette. Guests were all smiles throughout the event as they traveled back in time, if only for a day.
