Up Coming Vintage/Costume Events!

Looking for some fun filled vintage events this holiday season? If you are in the New England area I have two just for you! Tips on how to find out about events like these as well as other living history type events will be the subject of an upcoming post so stay tuned!

The Greater Boston Vintage Society is hosting its first annual Winter Formal at the Dane Estate of Pine Manor College in Brookline, Massachusetts. Here is the write up from the Facebook event page.

The Greater Boston Vintage Society "Winter Formal" event
Its 1946, the war is over, it’s time to put on your tux and top hat, your best formal gown, and celebrate like the good old days! Join us for a night of dinner, dancing, and a private complimentary showing of the newly released “It’s a Wonderful Life” on genuine 16mm film!

Refreshments and Dancing at 5:00 pm

Vintage style dress encouraged, but not mandatory ~ All ages welcome. Swing and Ballroom holiday music provided by Mike Hibarger of Boston Swing Central!
Cost: $30 per guest. Sorry no discounts available.
Payment must be received before Dec. 10th--Tickets can not be purchased at the door! To register/pay, send me a Facebook message and I'll provide payment info. Limited to 100 guests so sign up early before tickets sell out!

I've already ordered tickets to the Winter Formal and have started working on a new dress. If anyone is planning to attend let me know. I'd love to meet up!

Break out your best 1920s attire! VPT will be hosting An Experience Inspired by Downton Abbey on January 4th at the Essex Spa and Resort in Essex, Vermont. Some of you I'm sure will remember my posts earlier in year about the event. Admission was on the expensive side so at first I didn't think it would be possible to go. However, after talking it over with Cori we decided to splurge and go. I'm so glad we did because that ended up being the weekend that Cori proposed! The food was excellent and this year I understand there will be music and dancing.

Need more convincing? Here's a quick video about the event

  1. Those both sound marvelous!!! You guys are so lucky to have great vintage themed events like this in your vicinity. As close (and I'm using that word loosely) as we get here (and don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking it) is a classic car show every year in June (at which, so far at least, I've been the only vintage wearer I saw there).
