The free-and-open-to-the-public event featured music from some of Kauai’s best performers, such as Sashamon and Kimie Miner.

Local food trucks, military support organizations and PMRF’s own Shenanigans served up a wide variety of food and beverages for the nearly 1,000 guests who attended the festival.

“We are so happy to be able to open the base up today and invite you all to come out for our second annual Sunset Music Festival,” said Capt. Vincent Johnson, commanding officer.

“When we do base events, we really enjoy bringing the community out here. For my active duty sailors and for my staff here, it’s a workday for us but we truly love doing it and put in a lot of work to make this happen.”
