KMUN holds a 20th Birthday Galabash from 6 p.m. to midnight Saturday, Sept. 6 at the Astoria Yacht Club, 1555 W. Marine Drive.
What does one wear to a Galabash? It's "formal creative." "We want people to feel glamorous and comfortable," Stephanie Stern, KMUN development director, said. "This is an evening of celebration - of music and community - for the community."
"All are invited," Stern added. Guests are encouraged to dress in formal attire, but it's not required.
The public radio station, will be celebrate 20 years of music, people and community with live music including classical, folk, jazz, blues and rock in honor of KMUN's eclectic format. Each hour will highlight a different genre of music heard on KMUN.
Beer from Bill's Tavern will be available, as well as wine and nonalcoholic beverages. Hors d'oeuvres will be served from silver (or plastic) platters throughout the evening, from long-standing local restaurants such as The Ark, The Shoalwater Restaurant, the Sanctuary and the Cannon Beach Bakery.
