Ancient singers had no microphones, which meant audiences were quieter, and bringing a pet howler monkey to a performance was twice as irritating. Hoot and holler all you want with today’s Groupon for admissions to the 24th Annual Party Under the Big Tent at Oktoberfest 2011 at Camp Eastman in Irondequoit. This offer only gains Groupon-holders admission to one day of the festival, which runs Friday, September 16 through Sunday, September 18 and Friday, September 23 through Saturday, September 24. Choose between the following options:
- For $8, you get two admission tickets (a $16 value).
- For $16, you get four admission tickets (a $32 value).
Party Under the Big Tent delights Oktoberfest patrons with sizzling German food, thirst-quenching beverages, and dance-inducing Polka melodies (this Groupon is not valid for food and drink). Satisfy belly yearnings with a flavorful German bratwurst loaded with sauerkraut as you listen to the hypnotic sounds of Joe Maloy and his accordion, which combines the keys of a piano, the squeezability of a bagpipe, the melodic braying of a Julliard-trained billy goat. The one-acre tent party ensures no guest leaves with toe untapped by enlisting a slew of additional musical acts brimming with German flare, including the Genesee Valley Alpine Band (September 17–18), The Spitze Band (September 23–24), and Alpine Keys (September 23–24).
