Gatsby Afternoon Picnic

*** Due to inclement weather, the 2018 Gatsby Afternoon Picnic has been rescheduled for Saturday October 6, 2018 ***

 

Grab your boater, your garden party finest and your picnic basket and join the Art Deco Society of Virginia as we journey back in time to the 1920s, where afternoons on the lawn consisted of friends, food and frivolity!
The 4th Annual Gatsby Afternoon Picnic will take place on the lush lawns of the Wilton House Museum. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon dining with friends, both new and old, while overlooking the beautiful James River.
