2017 marks KMFA's 50th year of playing classical music in Austin! Our yearlong celebration will begin with a Block Party on January 29th at Fair Market. This will be a free, community-wide event for all Austinites to enjoy live classical music, engage with KMFA's history as Austin's only independent classical radio station--and celebrate its future as the voice of the Austin arts community. 

The Block Party will include a live broadcast by KMFA announcers, a line-up of prominent classical music acts, food trucks including Emojis Grilled Cheese Bar, Red White And QUE and Texas Chili Queens, free beer on tap from 4th Tap Brewing Co-op and cupcakes from Central Market, yard games, an impromptu kazoo symphony, and much more!

1 pm: - Live Broadcast Begins -
