Jazz Hot Baby on the Delaware – Fashion, Fun and Frolicking at the 1st Annual Jazz Age on the Delaware

Jazz Age on the Delaware made it’s
rollicking debut , August 1, 2015, on the
estate of Glen Foerd on the Delaware. Hundreds of guests enjoyed an open-air merriment with 1920’s music and dancing with Drew Nugget & Midnight Society, The Red Hot Ramblers with Chelsea Reed, The Minsky Sisters, The Gin Canaries (pictured), Old City Sweethearts and Dandy Wellington.

  

Other era-inspired fun will included dance lessons, elaborate picnics,
vintage-inspired food and drink, vintage shopping, mansion tours, lawn
games, antique automobiles, a pie baking contest, and much more. Plan to
step out in your best period attire and celebrate the elegance of the
period.

There was a great pie judging contest with sweet, savory and boozy pies.

No word on the winners yet, I think the last set of pies did them in
There were specialty drinks too.

I was impressed how many people really got dressed out and took the Jazz Age theme seriously.

We really lucked out too, the weather was fabulous. Sure it was 90F but there was very little humidity.
