SRAC Oktoberfest Crafts & Craft

Celebrate Oktoberfest with your own painted beer stein.

Beer aficionados love this time of year: Oktoberfest. This German festival has spread all over the world. This year, the Shreveport Regional Arts Council is celebrating on October 11 with a special event. Join them for “Oktoberfest Crafts & Craft Beer Night.” Break out the lederhosen and they’ll pour you a bier. Eagle Distributing Company/Budweiser will be providing 6 Oktoberfest beers to sample. You will also have the opportunity to personalize a beer mug during the tasting. At the end of this fun night, you will take home your new mug and 6 beers.

Mark your calendar for Thursday, October 11 from 5:30pm-8:00pm to be at artspace in downtown Shreveport (708 Texast Street). The cost is $30 and you must be over 21 with your ID to attend. Reserve your Oktoberfest Crafts & Craft ticket at the artspace website. Make sure to invite your friends and have a great time together.
