Swing with Portage Fill

The sound of swing will fill the Grand Hall of Open Space for Arts & Community at 4 p.m. Sunday when Vashon’s much-loved 18-piece Portage Fill Big Band plays the jazz music of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Bennie Goodman and more.

Doors open at 3 p.m. for dance lessons, with the Portage Fill’s music kicking off at 4 p.m. Dress for dancing — in your best Vashon style — at this all-ages event.

Admission is a suggested donation of $10 at the door, and no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
