May 27, 2017
Dardanella once again hosts The Great Gatsby Party on the Lawn at the National Cathedral gounds May 27, 2017!

With wishes for summer in the air, come out and join us on the grassy knoll! Return to a simpler time of music, dancing, tasty treats, and savory libations. We bring you our 3rd event in the District of Columbia! A chance to step back to the end of the 1st World War, the Volstead Act (in memoriam), Prohibition, Women’s Suffrage, and the roaring sights and sounds of the 1920’s.

Sprawled out before the magnificent towers of The National Cathedral, return to an older era of flapper dresses, boater hats, and the big band scores of the 1910's, 1920's, & 1930's. Two 11 piece orchestras will warm up your feet, dance performances, lessons, and contests by the Fidgety Feet, DC's Premiere Dance Team, lawn games including croquet, bocce, and tug o' war, 2 dance floors, photo sets, food & beverage, specialty alcoholic Prohibition cocktail bars, and much more await! Period attire strongly encouraged.

Our youngest fans under 14 years attend for free!
