Time to break out those Roaring Twenties getups.

This weekend, the historic grounds of the Glen Foerd Mansion on the Delaware River host the Jazz Age on the Delaware party this Saturday, August 1.

The 1920s-themed event takes over the estate’s lush grounds with an all-out lawn party — think a Charleston dance lesson, live music by bands like The Gin Canaries and the Red Hot Ramblers, a pie-baking contest, vendors peddling vintage-inspired goods and much more.

Guests of the party can choose to pack their own picnic or purchase a pre-made picnic online. Outside alcoholic beverages will not be allowed into the party, but there will be plenty of cocktails, wine and beer available for purchase at the event.

All of the day’s entertainment and activities will be located riverside in view of the Delaware River and the finely appointed mansion. Mansion tours will be available, too, for those looking to check out the gilded interior.

General admission tickets are $45 in advance (tickets are available online) and $55 on the day of the event. VIP tickets are $125 and include a private bar, food, a special dance lesson and more.

The party’s proceeds will go to support Glen Foerd’s efforts towards preservation — a mission we think is just the bee’s knees.
