From 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 16, Missouri City will host its inaugural Oktoberfest celebration in the Community Center in the City Hall complex, 1522 Texas Pkwy. This first-ever celebration will include authentic fare, entertainment and games to provide fun for the entire family.
Admission is free; food and beverages will be available for purchase. Attendees will also be able to purchase a $10 commemorative glass; the price includes one free beverage ticket.
In addition to Oktoberfest, the Parks & Recreation Department has a full recreation agenda that is fun for all ages:
The free celebrations will start on Saturday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. That evening, residents and visitors are invited to sway their way through live performances by Jazz Legend Kim Waters, and other national artists: Kyle Turner (Jazz), Step Rideau & the Zydeco Outlaws (Zydeco), Coffey Anderson (Country) and a number of Mariachi groups.
Then, on Sunday, from 2:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., we will showcase our First Annual Cultural Festival and Health Fair. Guests will be able to immerse themselves in a global array of food, music and art at this inaugural event. Entertainment will also feature four-time Grammy Award winner Wayne Toups (Zydeco), the Conrad Johnson Orchestra and Karen Briggs (Jazz).
