A fabulous time-honored tradition at the Gatsby Festival is our Afternoon Tea and Vintage Fashion Show.

  • Following the afternoon tea service, experience our Vintage Fashion Show with this years’s theme “100 Years of Fashion” presented by Cheri Oliver, Yesteryear Fashions!

Remember! Prohibition was in effect in the 1920s and the best way to consume alcohol was in a tea cup! Our maids and butlers will help you dispose of your tea and secretly switch to champagne!
