Calling all flappers, fly boys, daddies, and dames! Put on your glad rags and get a wiggle on to the Bootlegger’s Bash, where the Roaring Twenties are alive and well. Our Prohibition-era speakeasy will be the cat’s meow with complimentary sweet treats, plenty of hooch at our cash bar (shh!), and swanky prizes for those who dolled up for the costume contest!

  • Valet parking (at the north entrance)
  • Free entry to the American Spirits exhibit, complete with a scavenger hunt
  • A live dance performance by Christian & Jenny
  • A blackjack table, where chips can be cashed in for opportunities to win a prize
  • A photo booth where you can step inside an historic image
  • Refreshments with a vintage twist, including Gus' Pretzals, Cocktail Cupcakes, Pineapple Upside Down, Lemon Pound, Chocolate and much more!
  • Giveaways and more!

This event is for patrons 21 and up.
