DPRCA "Uncapped and Uncorked" Wine and Beer Tasting Fundraiser

Come one, come all to a fabulous fundraising festival! The Dakota Prairie Regional Center for the Arts in New Rockford invites you to join them for their fifth annual Fall event: Uncapped & Uncorked. Taking place Saturday, September 5th, the event will occur in the familiar setting of the courtyard behind the historic Opera House.

Traditionally a wine tasting event, this year the organization decided to expand the roster to include beer. As such, the DPRCA has proudly joined forces with Finnegans and Fargo Brewing Company to bring attendees a taste of something new. The two regional breweries will each bring a variety of beers to sample and purchase throughout the evening.

But fear not, oenophiles! As it is a wine tasting event, there will, of course, be a variety of wines - eight, to be exact. The vintages will showcase a broad palette of tastes ranging from sweet to smoky, from bright to brawny!

The evening begins at six o’clock with guest registration in the Opera House. From there, attendees will make their way out into the courtyard for social hour, which will include hors d’oeuvres, beverages a la carte, and the opportunity to bid & browse on unique silent auction items.

The event will begin in earnest at approximately seven o’clock with the opening of the tasting stations. Around the same time, the dinner tent will open. This year, guests will be treated to a delectable buffet of savory ribs, bison & wild rice meatballs, juicy corn-on-the-cob, and other sides & snacks.

As the evening progresses, live music will be provided by David Lee. Lee, who played at last year’s wine tasting, will perform a wide variety of music from pop to rock to folk.

The event will culminate in a spirited live auction, during which attendees are invited to bid on their favorite wines and beers; as it is the only way for guests to bring their favorite bottle home, a competitive spirit is encouraged!

Tickets for the event are available in two tiers. A $50 ticket will include everything (the meal, the tasting, and an evening of entertainment). For $30, guests can enjoy the meal and the evening’s festivities while purchasing beverages individually at the bar.

The DPRCA gratefully acknowledges the generous sponsorships of The New Rockford Eagles Club, Warren Implement, Cork & Barrel, Steele Family Bison, Gavilon Grain, and Dakota Growers Pasta.
