This weekend features an Oktoberfest celebration on the Grand River — and much more.
Oktoberfest Grand Rapids
(Friday and Saturday)
Edelweiss Club Grand Rapids invites you to come out for German beer and food, live music, games and bounce houses. “Bring the whole family.”
West Grand Block Party
This West Side event will feature music, a beer tent, vendors, door prizes, family-friendly games and activities and more. It is being produced by the West Grand Neighborhood Association.
The block party is Sept. 28 from 2-9 p.m. at 455 Leonard St. NW.
“Queens of Soul”
“A symphonic tribute to the voices that changed and super-charged pop, R&B, and soul: Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Nina Simone, Gladys Knight, Patti Labelle, Whitney Houston and Adele.”
The performances by the Grand Rapids Pops are Sept. 27, 28 and 29 at DeVos Performance Hall.
The Trivia Crawl That Can Not be Named
“Grab your cloaks and get ready for the most magical trivia you have ever seen.”
The trivia crawl is Sept. 28 from 4 p.m. to midnight. Check-in is from 4-6 p.m. at The Tin Can.
“Sleepy Hollow: The Play”
This show is based on of the short story “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” by Washington Irving and is “filled with multimedia effects and illusions that bring to life a menacing moment in time for the villagers of this small Dutch settlement,” the theater says. The theater advises that this production is “a dark and graphic re-telling of a Halloween classic.”
The play is Sept. 26-28 at 8 p.m. and Sept. 29 at 7 p.m. at Dog Story Theater.
