Dust off your saddle shoes and join local nonprofit Friends of Fort Vancouver at their Swing Back to the 50s fundraiser from 7 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23, at the Pearson Air Museum Historic Hangar. Music will be provided by the VanPort Jazz Band, which is widely acclaimed throughout the region for popular swing and jazz tunes. Attendees are invited to wear 1950s styles, either casual or “dressed to the nines.” A no-host bar will provide refreshments. This is an opportunity to join in the fun—on the dance floor or just to listen to the wonderful old songs!
Admission is $30 per ticket. Ticket sales are limited and must be purchased in advance through the Friends website at friendsfortvancouver.org or in person at the Friends Bookstore in the Visitor Center at 1501 E. Evergreen Blvd. on the Fort Vancouver Historic Reserve. Tickets will not be available for sale at the event.
The Historic Hangar at Pearson Air Museum is located 1115 E Fifth St. near Fort Vancouver. The mission of the Friends of Fort Vancouver is to inspire, inform and connect visitors, supporters, advocates and the community to Fort Vancouver National Historic Site.
