Make Memories in Astoria

Save the Date: 5th Annual Jane Barnes Revue, Saturday, March 28

This topsy-turvy fashion show features Astoria's finest men donning big wigs and beautiful dresses to cavort down a 24’ catwalk.  Originally meant to celebrate Jane Barnes, the first European woman of Astoria, it has become a delightful and hilarious evening of “Gentlemen Janes” “exposing” their feminine side while raising money for a great cause.

Join us, Saturday, March 28 at the Astoria Event Center (255-9th Street).  Tickets will be available at  Old Town Framing Co. (1287 Commercial St).

General admission tickets are $25.00, or reserved seating for $40.00 or $50.00.  Tickets can also be purchased at the door before the event, based on availability.  All proceeds go to support the Astoria Downtown Historic District Association (ADHDA).
