Six local bands—Parlour, Rockhounds, The Mostest, Rum and the Sea, Paul Eddy and the Silver Hammers—will play Beatles songs while audience members sing along with lyrics projected onto a screen. Ukulele University will play Beatles songs outside the venue as the audience arrives.

A silent auction and a raffle will feature donated items from local businesses. The evening’s festivities will include a costume contest with locals dressed as a Beatle or in period clothing and a Beatles trivia competition.
