retty Estates Resort will be hosting its 2nd Annual Great Gatsby Garden Party. Inspired by the Hollywood Hit, The Great Gatsby, this 1920s-themed poolside gathering will feature live music, swing dancers, and a craft fair showcasing local artisans.
Established in 2013, the first event was a big hit with locals and
out-of-town guests alike, with about 200 attendees in their finest 1920s
attire. Unlike any other event in the Lower Mainland, organizers are
excited to welcome guests back, promising an event that is even bigger
Headlining the party is Jennifer Hodge, a noted Vancouver-based bass
player. Hodge has twice led a quartet, in the Vancouver International
Jazz Festival, been nominated for the CBC Galaxie Rising Stars Award,
and travels throughout North America.
“My parents bought this land in the early 1900s, so the character of Rowena’s Inn, formerly the home that I grew up in, is perfect for a Gatsby Party. People told us it was a fitting venue and we listened,” explains Betty Ann Faulkner, owner of Pretty Estates Resort. “It is with great honour that I welcome people as my guests.”
Early bird tickets are only $22.00 until June 15. They are available by phone at 604.796.1000 or online under ‘Events’ at www.prettyestateresort.com
