Summer Outdoor Fun in NYC

NEW YORK - JULY 1: People enjoying relaxing outdoors in Central Park on July 1, 2012 in New York. The park is the most visited urban park in the United States with 35 million visitors annually.


One of the best things about New York in the summer is all of the amazing events that only come around once a year. Check out some of the celebrations below to take part in what the city has to offer!


Jazz Age Lawn Party

Celebrate like Gatsby at the Jazz Age Lawn Party hosted at Governor’s Island, which will take place later this summer, August 13th and 14th.! If you haven’t heard of the Jazz Age Lawn Party, it’s a 1920s-themed celebration where you get to dress up in classic 20s garb (think flapper dresses, striped suits), sip on classic cocktails, and dance along to live jazz! This summer, in addition to Arenella and his quintessential Jazz Age orchestra, enjoy performances from the Dreamland Follies and the Canarsie Wobblers, and piano jives from Peter Mintun.

While there, enjoy tasty bites from various food vendors, including Melt Bakery, Mom’s Cooking, and An Artistic Taste, among others. Peruse various vendor shops to find some vintage goods and handmade items.  To learn more about the event and to purchase tickets, click here.


Diner en Blanc

Diner En Blanc, possibly the most sophisticated picnic in existence, comes back to New York this summer to give New Yorkers a taste of this French-inspired, outdoor dining affair. In order to enjoy the dinner, you must arrive with a white square folding table, two white, chairs, white dining ware, and of course- white attire! For dinner, you can choose to bring your own dinner in a white picnic basket, or choose a catered meal with beverages, created by one of new York’s finest chefs.

But how do you get the invite? You can register on Diner en Blanc’s website, however there’s a catch.  The date of Diner en Blanc is only revealed until after the registration process is complete! To keep the dinner secretive and exclusive, the location of the dinner is only revealed until the last minute, again affirming to register your party and secure your tickets in advance. If you’re feeling spontaneous and , this is an event you wont want to miss!
