Want to enjoy the community spirit and camaraderie of St. Pat’s in Rolla while it is still fall? Join in the Septemberfest celebrations at Missouri University of Science and Technology and get ready for the 110th annual Best Ever St. Pat’s in March.

Septemberfest will be held noon to 5 p.m. Monday, Sept. 4, on the Havener Center lawn at Missouri S&T. The event is free and open to the public, but tickets for games and activities are $1 each. Food will be available for purchase at the event; no alcohol will be served at the event.

Attendees can participate in several carnival games, such as a dunk tank and a high-striker game, as well as various games at student organization-sponsored booths.

“This event is named after an old event the St. Pat’s Board used to put on in the ‘80s,” says Brady Kluesner, a junior in nuclear engineering from Urbandale, Iowa. “The new Septemberfest is structured differently, as a carnival-themed event geared toward showing new students what the committee does in terms of event planning and putting on the actual St. Pat’s events. The idea is that this event will boost the first-year participation by giving a hands-on display of what we do on campus.”
