Join the Rhode Island Historical Society on Thursday, August 25, for the third of its Bicentennial Jubilees, a 1922 Jubilee Gala at the Squantum Association.
The evening will kick off at 5:30 p.m. with a Club House Cocktail Reception with passed hors d’oeuvres, a signature cocktail, a jazz trio, and a tribute to the centennial of Rhode Island radio, including a radio panel exhibit and a performance of a 1920s-inspired radio play. At 6:30 p.m. guests will move to the Bake House for a seated dinner, including wine service, a selection of three entrees, and insights into the Association’s connections to Prohibition, all with screenings of period silent films from the RIHS collections serving as a backdrop.
At 7:30 p.m. the After Party will literally start with a bang and feature music from the 17-piece New Providence Big Band, dance performances by the flappers from Chifferobe, a dessert bar, and more!
Tickets for the After Party are still available for $50 and can be purchased at rihs.org.
