GBVS Newport Jazz Age Weekend!
Welcome to Newport Jazz Age Weekend, a tribute to the music and fashion of the 1920s-50s! Hosted by the Greater Boston Vintage Society, this event takes place at Salve Regina University's Fairlawn Estate (aka Pell Center/Young Building). This beautiful estate was built in the 1850s and used as a private residence for most of its life until being converted for school and college use. With grand ballrooms and a vast lawn on Bellevue Ave, it is the perfect place to experience life in the art deco age. Period style outfits are suggested but not required.
Our theme for this year is "The History and Influence of Black American Culture in Jazz and Swing". All day we'll have themed activities and classes. Our head instructor for the event will be Odysseus Bailer of NYC! At noon we take a break to enjoy a grand picnic on the lawn. Take your picture by the gorgeous scenery which may include vintage autos. Then get ready for the Black-Tie Ball. Headlining the evening is the outstanding "Taryn Newborne and the Real Deal"! Full details will be posted on the Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/435086355411924
