October Festival 2019 Features Live Entertainment for Two Days
October Festival will be held at Allison Park and all the Live Entertainment on the beautiful Amphitheater Stage will be FREE ADMISSION!
On Friday, October 4th, Downtown Horns will grace the stage. This band, hailing from Grand Forks, has performed over 400 shows in the last 10 years and plays a little bit of everything. “The Horns” (as their fans are known to call them) boast a tight five-piece rhythm section and a phenomenal four-piece horn section that create enthusiastic crowds in any venue. An engaging frontman and five other lead vocalists combine with trumpet, trombone, saxophones, bass and electric guitars, drums, and keyboards to produce a sound seldom heard in the Midwest. Whether you like Rock, Pop, R&B, Blues, Country, or Disco, prepare to Twist and Shout and get your Uptown Funk on all night!
Saturday, October 5th, the stage will be graced by a number of regional performers throughout the day. The musical stylings of Gabbie June, Jordynn Johnsrud, The Jensen Sisters, and Jessica Johnson will intersperse between a local variety show and two Magic Shows. Comedy Magician Jeffrey Salveson of Fargo will bring his 35 years of experience to the October Festival stage. He will also perform some close-up strolling magic and balloon twisting off-stage.
A separate ticketed Comedy Hour Special will take place Saturday night in the Pavilion. Comedian Mark Poolos has performed in 40 states and all across Canada and we are excited to welcome him back to Warroad for this show! There will be a limited number of seats available, and advance-sale tickets ($12) will be on sale soon!
