The Roaring Twenties comes to the Seal Cove Auto Museum


From flappers and suffragists, to bootleggers and bathtub gin, the 1920s were a time of contradiction and dramatic social change. With the nation's wealth doubling during the decade, an onslaught of new inventions were available. Cars were no longer just for the elite, but readily available to the masses, heralding a whole new sense of freedom in America. This new freedom was celebrated through social pleasures such as new energetic and daring dances, and visiting "juice joints" and speakeasies.

In this spirit of freedom and fun, the Seal Cove Auto Museum will hold its Third Annual Speakeasy in March. The Museum will be hitting on all sixes to make this year's event the best yet!

Enjoy Shane Ellis' Swingin' Overtime with their old-school acoustic big-band show, blackjack, prohibition-era beers, and a specialty drink created just for the event. Apparatus Dance Theater, aerial performers from Portland, Maine, will return with a brand new act that will include single-point trapeze feats, and a hula-hoop performance. The Barn Arts Collective from Bass Harbor will be adding their special talents to the event to entertain guests, including teaching Charleston and swing moves to dancers. Period-inspired dress is encouraged but optional. It’s sure to be the cat’s pajamas!
