Gatsby Jazz Age Party

Get your Gatsby on and party like it’s 1925!

Get ready to don your fringe, feathers and top hat for Gatsby Night at the Bothwell. On February 3, an uproarious celebration of the 1920s will fill the Bothwell Arts Center with live music by the Royal Society Jazz Sextet , dancing, food and finery. A major fundraising event for the Bothwell, tickets cost $100 and there will be a variety of silent auction items, as well as a prohibition-themed blind wine raffle!

The Encore Players, Livermore’s community theater company and a resident of the Bothwell’s West End Theatre, will present three short 15-minute programs during the Gatsby Jazz Age Party. Held in the Bothwell’s West End, the programs are free as part of the gala event.

While costumes that showcase the period’s fringe, feathers and swank style are more than welcome, guests are encouraged to enjoy the event in whatever style of dress suits them. Watch for our Meet and Greet model, fully painted in an amazing Art Deco style by one of our talented artists.

Tickets include served and buffet appetizers and significant small plates. Catered by Pacific Coast Events, the food is sure to be a highlight.  The "Blue Ruin Speakeasy Bar" will be offering beer, wine and Prohibition-era-style drinks.  A silent auction will also feature such 1920s-themed treasures as a Cache of Spirits, a Jazz Music basket, a San Francisco Premium Outlets Amazing Gift Bag, and other arts, entertainment and style-related items.

All proceeds benefit the Bothwell Arts Center. Both the Bothwell and the Bankhead Theater, which houses the Visitors Center and Gallery, are part of the Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center, an independent non-profit arts organization serving the Tri-Valley community and beyond. 

TICKETS for  ”Gatsby Night” are available now through the Bankhead ticket office or online.
