PITTSBURG — Time to rock out for a good cause because Rocktoberfest is coming soon.
Rocktoberfest is an annual fundraiser to support The Lord’s Diner, hosted by Pittsburg Noon Rotary Club.
The diner provides a hot meal to anyone who walks through its doors at no cost, 365 days a year. All of this is possible because of the donations given to the diner from the community, Jon Bartlow, Chair of Pittsburg Noon Rotary Rocktoberfest.
Bartlow said the Noon Rotary is excited to have the event in Downtown Pittsburg.
“Rocktoberfest is a fundraiser, but at the same time it offers something fun,” he said.
Six bands will play every hour beginning at 6 p.m. until midnight at 505.
“They are coming from Oklahoma, Southwest Missouri and Southeast Kansas,” Bartlow said. “I don’t think anyone could find more talented groups of bands playing in one night, especially at the price of $10.”
The musicians are playing for free and all proceeds go towards helping The Lord’s Diner.
The event costs $10. Brats and sauerkraut and more will be served at Maggie’s Curbside which will be parked outside of the venue.
The organizers are also working with Eagle Beverage which will be serve authentic German beers, Bartlow said, including KC Bier Company. There were also be plenty of domestic beers as well, he said.
If people wish to donate but cannot go to the event they can make a donation to the Noon Rotary Club and notate The Lord’s Diner or they can go directly to the Lord’s Diner with their donation. There are also volunteer opportunities at the diner.
