The 30th Annual Gatsby Summer Afternoon

Join several hundred aficionados of the 1920's and 30's as they step back to a time when elegance was a way of life. At the Gatsby Summer Afternoon, the panoramic front lawn of the historic Dunsmuir Hellman House becomes the stage on which every participant dresses in vintage day wear styles of the era. They play, picnic, sip champagne and dance; the Charleston and Fox Trot was all the rage. It is reminiscent of a scene from the famous 1925 novel - The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Those of you who have come before KNOW this one is a blast. An attempt at Vintage Attire Mandatory.

    Hi Ed. This is my first meetup with you. Where would I be able to find our group? I think I once saw something about green umbrellas, but can't seem to find that information now. Thanks for hosting this event, it looks exciting.

      You have it right.... there are THREE huge green umbrellas... historically the only green ones there in a field of white. Hard to miss. Usually we are set up near the row of cars closest to the mansion. The three umbrellas in close proximity are the give away, its hard to miss us. Do try to put together a 20's ish outfit, they have actually turned people away though you may be able to rent something there from the "Clothes Closet" if you have nothing appropriate. There is more info on costuming on the Art Deco Society of California's website. Divided into gals and guys so there is input available on what to wear.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
