Take a step back to the days of speakeasies, flappers, and Prohibition. The 1920s, aka The Roaring Twenties, was a decade when women won the right to vote and jazz music came of age. On Saturday, October 15, the Heyde Center will be throwing the party of the 2020’s decade, but only those with the secret knock and the password will be allowed to enter. Sshhhhh! Keep it under your hat as we don’t want any trouble from the authorities! Food, entertainment and dress will be inspired by this very interesting time in the history of the United States.
