11th Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party Sponsored By St-Germain

New York’s 11th Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island

Last weekend, more than 10,000 people made their way to Governor’s Island for the 11th Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party. Sponsored by St-Germain, the 1920s themed celebration looked to the roaring twenties, offering period-appropriate cocktails, food, and music. Before sunset on Saturday and Sunday, guests enjoyed live music by host Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra, and a live dance performance by The Minsky Sisters, while master mixologist Julie Reiner, owner of Brooklyn’s Clover Club, created signature cocktails, including crowd favorites such as “Flappers Delight” and “Strike up the Band.” With dance floors busy with old-school favorites like the Charleston, the Peabody, and the Turkey Trot, guests were able to enjoy the afternoon breeze with a refreshing cocktail under a tent, on a picnic blanket, or under the summer sun.

To celebrate a first occurrence in this 11-year-long tradition, the Jazz Age Lawn Party welcomed affordable luxury home interior design company Homepolish to create custom tents for special guests. The two tents—“Bijoix” for consumers and “This Side of Paradise” for VIP guests—offered unique takes on 1920s moments, with decorative twists like low basket seats and leather armchairs welcoming guests into the elegant spaces. The Bijoix tent displayed lush Parisian-inspired femininity with vintage elements. This Side of Paradise was inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Lost Generation—the group of writers and poets who fled to Paris for artistic expression in the 1920s—and offered a backdrop of highlighted trends from the time. Fine art, literature, and fashion met to offer an oasis of charming details.

“This year marks Homepolish’s first-ever collaboration with St-Germain for the 11th Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party. Homepolish and St-Germain partnered up to bring a new and unique experience to St-Germain’s classic Vive The Daylife celebration,” said Noa Santos, CEO and Founder of Homepolish. “Both tents were styled in order to transport guests to the 1920s and featured rich colors, luxe textiles, vintage art deco elements, and gold accents.”

After a toast to the end of an era, and almost a century of rich history since the time period in celebration, guests boarded the ferry, and headed back home to Manhattan—reliving the roaring twenties from island to island.
