We are planning a fun, Oktoberfest style event for this fall. We will have great live music by Miss Myra and the Moonshiners on Saturday, and autotune karaoke by our own Pirate Betsy on Friday night! We'll be grilling up some tasty German bratwursts, serving delicious soft pretzels, playing outdoor games, and tasting some amazing beers. Put the date on your calendar and make sure you join us!
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Prohibition, PlaceBase Productions has joined in partnership with Granite Falls Historical Society, Granite Falls, MN, Bluenose Gopher Public House, The YES House and Other Tiger Productions for a space and time-traveling event! This original production will take place downtown Granite Falls throughout the summer as a musical theater adventure exploring three generations of liberation, libation, inhibition (or lack thereof), history, the future, and of course, Prohibition. Plus root beer, local brew, and some good old drinking (and non-drinking) songs! Audience will start at Bluenose Gopher Public House and travel to the YES! House and the Andrew John Volstead House,* returning to Bluenose for a beverage of your choice, included with the ticket price! *If you require mobility assistance to move from scene to scene, please contact us to arrange accommodations.
