The popular “Gatsby at the Gardens” that takes place at Friendship Botanic Gardens in Michigan City returns this summer.

The event, which is now in it’s third year, continues to grow and is already almost halfway sold out.

Dance the night away, or play lawn games like bocce and croquet!

At Gatsby you can choose to dress up or not, although many people get very creative with their costumes, making it a very festive event! Your $45 ticket gets you a light food spread, four sample cocktails from the 1930’s, live jazz music and dancing. You can also enjoy lawn games as well as stroll the gardens or get a tour on one of the people movers. A cash bar with beer and wine will also be available.

Want to grab your ticket? You can get one right here. Price does go up to $50 at the gate if tickets are still available.
