Dauphin Spotlight – October

OCT 1 – Come down to Bruce’s Firehouse to take in some dirt road rock and roll from Kingston, Ontario. Tom Savage will take the stage at 8:00pm. His country music tour will take him throughout Canada and we can’t wait to have him rock the stage in Dauphin! Doors will open at 7:30pm. Call in advance for tickets 204-638-4834 or pick them up at the door prior to show time.

OCT 4 – Bring on the laughs! The Dauphin & District Community Foundation presents Big Daddy Tazz. Tazz is equal parts comedian and motivational speaker, who likes to enlighten, educate and inspire. As a result, his one-man shows have drawn rave reviews and standing ovations from coast-to-coast. Enjoy appetizers and cocktails as well as Philanthropist of the year award. Doors open at 7:00pm at the Dauphin & District Allied Arts Centre. Tickets are $40 and are available at the Community Foundation office at City Hall.

OCT 8 – While the weather outside is cooling off, you’ll need to warm up. Best chilly weather food? Chili! The Annual Chili Cook Off hosted by the Parkland Mental Health promotion committee is on from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at the Dauphin Friendship Center back hall. Admission is only $2! You’ll get to sample and vote for your favorite Chili. There will also be a wellness raffle, and live entertainment! To enter your chill into the event call Pam at 204-622-4189.

OCT 19 – Mark your calendars! Fred Eaglesmith hits the stage for a concert to remember at the Watson Art Centre. Eaglesmith is a veteran of the music industry and at the same time is about as far away from actually participating in today’s music industry as one could be. Never operating within anyone’s boundaries, he continues to set the standard for independent artists everywhere. Doors open at 7:30pm and the show begins at 8:00pm.

OCT 24 – TGIF! Spend your Friday enjoying good wine, good food and good company at the Rotary Wine Tasting. This evening will feature instructed wine tasting, fine finger foods and mingling with friends at the Lion’s Den, Parkland Rec Complex. Tickets are $25 and available from any Rotary member as well as at the Dauphin MLCC.

OCT 31 – Witches, warlocks, goblins, oh my! Get dressed up and come to the Watson Art Centre for a live performance by Krazy Madness, a metal/rock who play tribute to many classic metal bands such as Iron Maiden, Led Zeppelin, Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Quiet Riot, Jimi Hendrix and many more. Get ready for some spoOoky fun and cash prizes!
