OKTOBERFEST CELEBRATION WEEK! September 20-September 28, 2019

We are celebrating Oktoberfest with a bang this year! A week’s worth of events for you to join in on!

Kicking off the celebration on Saturday, September 21st with The Porter Brothers (Billy Krause Trio) from 7-10pm.

Singer-songwriter Billy Krause is a veteran performer who was influenced at an early age by such artists as Richie Havens, Dave Van Ronk, Danny O’Keefe and Gordon Lightfoot. His songs tell tales of broken hearts and newfound love, and sometimes bring the darker side of the human condition to light. Whether this Porter Brothers trio is doing the gravel-in-the-can, the holler of the boogie-woogie or the soft croon of a ballad, their music makes the audience feel right at home.

Sunday, September 22 –  Family Day 12-2pm

Issue #3 offers as broad and impressive a mix as Issues #1 and #2 did, with novice and professional writers, folks who have lived in the Chippewa Valley their entire lives and those who have joined our community from afar. The release party for Issue #3 will feature readings from the journal, including fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, as well as commentary from the editors on the publication process and how the journal has grown in its third year. Stop down to hear some incredible writing, pick up an issue, and connect with the Chippewa Valley’s community of writers.
