Oktoberfest is a Munich tradition since 1810, when it celebrated the betrothal of the Bavarian King Ludwig I to Princess Therese. Since that time, Oktoberfest has grown to a worldwide phenomenon, a celebration of all things German… in particular the especially potent Oktoberfest beer! The Arts Center is proud to sponsor our own annual Oktoberfest celebration! This year, for the first time we are holding Oktoberfest downtown in our own Hansen Arts Park, the perfect venue for this popular fundraiser. This year’s celebration includes: • Authentic German Oktoberfest beers on tap. • North Dakota Microbreweries offering tastings of their products. • Authentic German bratwurst and snacks as part of the admission price. • Live music from Matt Hodek and the Dakota Dutchmen, performing authentic “old time” music. • A genuine “Beer Tent” for a real Oktoberfest feel. • German games and raffles. It’s as close as you can come to a trip to Bavaria without leaving ND… a real Oktoberfest celebration right here in downtown Jamestown! Enjoy great beer and food, live music and best of all, genuine German gemütlichkeit… all at The Arts Center’s Oktoberfest! We hope to see you this Saturday! Tickets are $35 and are available from Cork & Barrel, The Arts Center, Arts Center Board members and at the gate and online: Click for Oktoberfest Tickets Magician Lion Fludd Entertainer & Magician returns to The Arts Center Thursday, Sept 27 at 7:30 pm Arealeius “Lion” Fludd is a very “groovy” charismatic performer who specializes in theatrical mind reading and sleight of hand magic.
