5/23 The day we've been waiting for.

Clear your calendar - It's happening! ShakesBEER on the River kicks off on May 23rd at 5pm, and you're invited to take part in the festivities. What a great way to start a long holiday weekend!

NOTE: Advanced GA tickets are $35 until 5/15 and then they go up to $40, so get 'em now. 

This is a 21 and over event. You must be 21 to enter the beer garden.

It starts at Lewis and Clark Landing and the Storz Trophy Room - right on the Riverfront. There will be plenty of beer and food to sample -- taste one of several small batch beers including a new one named in honor of Nebraska Shakespeare -- Midsummer's Night Ale. 

Enjoy live music from local performers, including the award-winning, seven piece doo-wop and soul band -- All Young Girls are Machine Guns.

There will be games like pong, washers and ring toss and contests involving frozen t-shirts. Have fun and win prizes. Perhaps some meat...from the Wheel of Meat.

Enjoy professional actors performing short, irreverant, Shakespearean comedic productions. 

PLUS the grand finale is a boat parade along the Mighty Mo. The boats will be decked out with theme decorations and you'll get a chance to vote on who will be crowned the grand prize winner. Radio Channel 94.1 will be broadcasting live during the event.

General admission and patron tickets are available. 

This is a one-of-a-kind event blending fun, festivities, fabulous fare, and a touch of foolery. All proceeds benefit Nebraska Shakespeare to help keep Shakespeare on the Green a free event for all to enjoy.

Come one, come all, bring a guest, and hang loose. This is going to be epic!
