Prost!  After a Pandemic Hiatus

Sandler Center Foundation’s Oktoberfest for the Arts Returns!

Great Beer, Music & Fun for a Great Cause!

August 30, 2022– Virginia Beach
Beer, Music & Fun—three essentials to ease a recovery after a season of shut down. The Sandler Center Foundation’s OktoberFest for the Arts celebration returns September 24th to New Realm Brewing Company with all this and more after its COVID-season hiatus last year.

“All through the pandemic we leveraged the latest technology, even virtual reality gear, to deliver safe performing arts experiences to our community. While our Virtual Stage was a great success, nothing will beat enjoying live music, yummy food, and delicious craft beers with great people at Oktoberfest for the Arts at New Realm. ‘Can’t wait to see the smiling faces. It’s been too long.” said Lisa Baehre, Sandler Center Foundation Executive Director.

Oktoberfest for the Arts supports the Sandler Center Foundation’s efforts to provide performing arts programming to schools, assistance to the local performing arts community and to educate, inspire and enrich our community through the performing arts. “Every penny of the ticket price to attend Oktoberfest for the Arts goes to help make Performing Arts more accessible to all,” said Audra Dement, Sandler Center Foundation’s Annual Giving & Events Director. “And that wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our sponsors—Chesapeake Homes, Equity Title Company and Integrated Health Services. We couldn’t be more grateful.”

Musical entertainment for this festive fall event will be provided by the area’s favorite 9-piece band, BRASSWIND—entertaining the mass with all that brass.
