The second annual Great Gatsby: Life’s a Picnic will build on the event’s wildly successful 2018 debut.  Don your best Gatsby era garden party attire and travel back in time to the Roaring 20’s with a crowd of VIP guests. The afternoon will include a catered picnic, signature cocktails, premium wines, live music, live auction, vintage cars and a few surprises. The backdrop for this event will be Warrenton farm Elway Hall, located at 8394 Elway Lane.
