Fairfield Museum to host Speakeasy party

The Fairfield Museum is hosting a 1920s Speakeasy Party in conjunction with the new exhibition Flappers: Fashion & Freedom on Saturday, Oct. 6, from 7 to 10 p.m. Guests are invited to wear cocktail and flapper-inspired attire.

The “glam” party will feature specialty cocktails from Asylum Distillery, wine courtesy of Josh Cellars, appetizers from Festivities Catering, as well as swing and jazz music. In addition, attendees will be able to learn the Charleston and Lindy Hop with help from professional dancers and instructors from SwingShoes Entertainment and Dance Dimensions in Norwalk.  Guests are welcome to peruse the exhibition, which features vintage hats, bejeweled dresses and other authentic items from Fairfield in the 1920s.

“The Flappers: Fashion and Freedom exhibition explores a fun and fascinating time in Fairfield’s history” said Mike Jehle, Fairfield Museum’s executive director. “We are excited to welcome the community to come party like it’s the 1920s at our Swanky Speakeasy on October 6th. Events like this raise crucial funds to support our education programs that serve thousands of students each year.”

Tickets are $75 and available online at Fairfieldhistory.org/events/speakeasy/ or by calling (203) 259-1598. Proceeds will support the Museum’s educational programs.
