On December 12, 2015 we're looking to steam up the holidays with music in the dark of the year. Whether you rock gears and goggles, bustle or bowler, this is holiday opportunity to come out and kick it old school. Olympic Express Big Band brings sassy, brassy horns and rhythm for an absinth-infused evening of dancing.
The Brass Screw Confederacy and Olympic Peninsula Steam invite you to join us at historic Fort Worden State Park where the halls are decked, the hosts are jolly, and the fruit cake will keep you toasty all night long. Come as you are - Victorian, Steampunk, fancy dress, blue jeans. It's the spirit, the season and the swing that matter!
