Talk and Pop-Up Exhibition: Oktoberfest

Saturday, October 13, 2018, 7:00 pm
Paster Reading Room

Join Before 'Farm to Table'  Research Fellow Jack Bouchard in exploring rare materials related to the Folger Consort's Oktoberfest: Early Music of Germany. Enhance your Consort experience with this pre-show pop-up event and get a behind-the-scenes look at items from the Folger vault.

This program is associated with Before 'Farm to Table': Early Modern Foodways and Culture, a Mellon initiative in collaborative research at the Folger.

Please keep in mind the following guidelines when considering your visit to the Reading Room:

- Food and drink are strictly prohibited in the Reading Room.

- Flash photography is not permitted, though you may take photos without a flash.

- Please be mindful of scarves, necklaces, and ties when leaning over to take a closer look at items and to take care that those objects don't come in contact with the materials.

Join us for the evening's performance of Oktoberfest following the pop-up. Purchase tickets online or call the Folger Box Office at 202.544.7077.


Please note: We're hard at work restoring our historic building's marble facade. As a result, seven parking spaces on 3rd Street SE, just south of its intersection with East Capitol Street, will be unavailable for public parking.
