The Thistle Affair is the annual fundraising event for the San Angelo Performing Arts Center. Established in 2019, the Thistle Affair, is centered around providing exceptionally unique and fun experiences while promoting awareness of the vibrant performing arts ecosystem in San Angelo and the Concho Valley.
This year for the Thistle Affair we invite you to step into a 1940's USO style Hangar Dance, complete with the Swing Dancers and the Big Band sound of West Texas Jazz Orchestra.
A 1943 SNJ-4 Texan provided by Sam Strahan will serve as the backdrop for the evening at Skyline Aviation.
