The Bootlegger’s Ball

A Collaboration Of
West Linn Historical Society and Oswego Heritage Council

On June 29, 2024

The Bootlegger’s Ball

Step back in time to the 1920s, when the music was big and the booze was illegal! There will be live jazz music, light dining, and for those willing to bend the rules, for those who have the secret invite, a burlesque show in our speakeasy soiree. Don your skirts that fall above your ankles, put on your best suits and biggest hats, and be prepared for a night of vices, history, and fun. 

The Bootlegger’s Ball is a fundraising event for the Oswego Heritage Council and the West Linn Historical Society. Donations will benefit both historical organizations. There will be a silent auction, live jazz band, prohibition-style drinks, the optional speakeasy show which features burlesque professionals, and other opportunities to give. 

Dressing up is encouraged! 


Please note that there are three ticket options and limited tickets for the speakeasy show at the end of the evening. Tickets to the speakeasy show are required and will grant you access to the show, with preferred seating for our VIP guests. The speakeasy show will begin at 8:00 PM, with other entertainment occurring beforehand. All tickets include access to the main part of the house and the event, including light food, jazz music, and other fun.

Guests are invited to dress-up and embrace the experience for its unique engagement of history.
