“One of our favorite events every year, the Jazz Age Sunday Social is the brainchild of our good friend Matt Tolentino of the Singapore Slingers,” said Melissa Prycer, president and executive director, Dallas Heritage Village. “It transforms the Village into a 1920s lawn party and picnic – fun for the whole family. Even if you choose not to dress up, half the fun is seeing everyone else’s costume choices. The costume contest is definitely a highlight for me every year.”
“Both New York and Los Angeles host huge and amazing Jazz Age-inspired lawn parties, and it’s my hope for Dallas to be on the same page,” added Matt Tolentino. “Dallas Heritage Village is the ideal setting with its lush greens, new bandstand and historic setting. The Jazz Age Sunday Social offers something for everyone – couples, families, and all lovers of things vintage.”

For the Jazz Age Sunday Social, kids 12 and under free. All others: $12. Tickets can be purchased online at www.dallasheritagevillage.org or at the gate.
