Officially, the event "celebrates all eras of sophisticated dressing and timeless style from yesterday to today." To encourage dressing up, the event organizers even hold a Dapper Day Eve cocktail party and vintage market, with outfits and accessories for last-minute planners.
Since so many travel from far and wide for Dapper Day, the event qualifies for convention discounts for park admission, with tickets starting from $59.
The first Dapper Day of 2014 may have just wrapped up (photos below!), but there are plenty more to come...
