The event will held at the Alliance Fran├žaise de Washington and will feature food, music and performances by local musicians, actors, and actresses in character, depicting the sounds and personalities of the era. A Silent Charity Art Auction for the Alliance's Anne Bujon Educational Initiative , curated by Authentic Contemporary Art will be held simultaneously during the event. This will be the second year that LiL SoSo and the Alliance will be co-sponsoring this event.
