It's time to celebrate the Second Annual Gatsby Summer Evening — A night of glamour in the style of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s adored literary classic, as we pay tribute to a Golden Age in global culture.

The event will again be held downtown at Director Park and it is sure to be the Bee’s Knees. Come dressed to the Nines in your Glad Rags to enjoy a nighttime party under the Portland Summer sky, as we tip a few together at the Ritziest shindig that the city will see all year. The Giggle Water will be flowing as we Trip The Light Fantastic in high style to the jazziest music around. Expect everyone that you see to look Hotsy-Totsy, so you should be prepared to match!
