Join us for the 33rd annual Gatsby Summer Afternoon!

Every year, the Dunsmuir Hellman Historic Estate in Oakland comes to life as what looks like a movie set for The Great Gatsby: everyone dressed in 1920s and 30s daywear, picnicking amid vintage autos sprawled out on the lawn and dancing to authentic jazz era tunes.

Please note: in order to preserve the spirit of the Gatsby Summer Afternoon, we ask that **everyone** dress up in period attire or reasonable facsimile. Make sure to attend How to Gatsby: Getting ready for the Gatsby Summer Afternoon if you are a first timer!
