In order to create an authentic atmosphere of the past, we ask that all guests arrive in either authentic vintage attire, reproduction or a reasonable facsimile. Creating an ensemble or costume is not difficult, and doesn't need to be expensive! Look on Etsy, or in your local thrift shops. Men can wear slacks, leather shoes, and a dress shirt for an easy outfit. Women wear your sun dresses. Review photos from last year on the New Deal Facebook page for more inspiration.
Please understand due to the historic nature and spirit of the event, no one in sneakers, jeans, or a t-shirt can be admitted. We encourage everyone to make a best-effort to dress in the correct style, in order to preserve the fun of the historical authenticity that is Northwest New Deal Weekend.
