Check out our great promo video from 2015 - expect all this and more this year!
You'll know you're at the right place when you walk in to the strains of Bill Flynt and his 1923 Tangley steam calliope, welcoming you to the park. Dance to the music of Matt Tolentino and the Singapore Slingers, followed by Dave Washburn's Three Quarters Fast Jazz Band. Both bands will be augmented by a very special guest, more information coming soon! Amelia Fox Trot of the Austin Phonograph Company will be demonstrating original 78 rpm records on antique gramophones.
Elaine Hewlett from the Rhythm Room will be teaching you all some fabulous dance steps of the 1920s, so you'll be ready to go when the bands kick off. Dance the afternoon away on our beautiful wooden dance floor.
We encourage everyone to bring a picnic lunch, but should you find yourself short on time, not to worry - Easy Slider Truck will be on hand serving up delicious hamburgers made to order. Wild About Harry's is back with their delicious custard! The popcorn wagon will be in full swing, and sodas and waters can be purchased from the saloon. In true prohibition style, alcohol is not allowed on the grounds.
Antique automobiles will be adding beauty to the landscape, and some will even be available for rides! Keith Weiss of Vintage Coach will have his beautiful Model A Ford available for you and your friends to ride in style. Antique Studebakers, Maxwells, and Packards have all been a part of our festival before, and we look forward to seeing them and many more classics.
Everyone is invited to don their finest walking whites and summer apparel - vintage costume is encouraged but is certainly not mandatory. However we will be having a contest for the best dressed, so all you flappers and sheiks - make sure you're looking good!
