Great Upcoming Events in Duluth This Week

September 22nd - 27th: Beaner’s Central One Week Live Vol. 13 Recording Project
Time: All shows start at 7:00 pm
For the thirteenth year in a row, Beaner’s Central Concert Coffeehouse curates its popular One Week Live (OWL) Recording Project & Concert Series. To experience a week long, city-wide music festival is something our region is familiar with. In comparison, to experience a live recording session in one venue for six consecutive nights is something entirely different, perhaps even more intimate at times. Every act’s “best” song is vetted for a live sampler CD. The CD will be made available for purchase through Beaner’s a few months after the concert series. Held at Beaner's Central Concert Coffeehouse at 324 North Central Avenue. Call (218) 624-5957

People who are of age compete in German beer drinking contests, people with a knack for dance compete in polka contests, and anyone can compete in the stein holding! Not that Grandma’s Oktoberfest is about competition; it is all about having fun with family and friends, old and new alike. While you’re dining or stopping by for this once-a-year beer and menu, you can also enjoy live music by the “Wurst Band” who perform each day beginning at noon and do various shows throughout the day. This year’s Oktoberfest Grand Marshal will be handing out free beer coupons in downtown Duluth during the Oktoberfest parade, and participate in the tapping of the first keg on Tuesday, September 23rd, 24 hours before opening day. Be sure to be on Superior Street by 11:30 a.m. to get your beer coupon! The Grand Marshal’s duties also include guest judging of the rousing nightly competitions.
