$10 limited advance, $15 advance, $20 door, 21+.
All guests must attend in period attire.

On Sunday May 20th, join Winkel & Balktick for a journey into the world of F. Scott Fitzgerald and his coterie of colorful characters. Indulge in the company of upper crust aristocrats, nouveau riche playboys, daring bootleggers, bohemian artist-types and kickline-ready chorus girls.

Our venue is the Andrew Freedman Home, an enormous Italian palazzo-style villa completed in 1924. Freedman, a Tammany Hall operator and financier, built it as a retirement palace for wealthy socialites who had fallen on hard times.

We will begin our celebration upon the limestone terrace and verdant lawn with croquet, bocce, bandstands and champagne. In the evening, the doors will be thrown open and we will continue our gallivanting within the recently-restored Billiards Room, book-lined Library and opulent Grand Ballroom.

The day’s entertainment, ranging from Jazz Age live music and performance to leisurely lawn sports and games, will be announced shortly.

If you are a devotee of the French Riviera of the 20s or the New York of the Great Gatsby, please contact us for performance and participation opportunities.

This event is generously co-presented with No Longer Empty, whose This Side of Paradise art exhibition and program series at the Andrew Freedman Home is open now through June 5th.

Since 1985, The Andrew Freedman Home has been owned and operated by the Mid-Bronx Senior Citizens Council, a non-profit social service organization devoted to serving the families, youth and seniors of the Bronx.
