Prairie Home Companion 40th Anniversary Listening/Viewing Party contest.

UPDATE: Congratulations to our Viewing Party contest winners: Jeff Andert, John Baker, Patrick Coyle, Adrienne Eckel and Audrianne Hill.    

The special A Prairie Home Companion 40th Anniversary viewing/listening party will take place on Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014 from 6-8pm ET. You can watch a live video stream of this broadcast here. 

A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor will be celebrating 40 years on the air this fall. On September 20th, Garrison Keillor, Sue Scott, Tim Russell and the rest of the A Prairie Home Companion gang will converge on the Fitzgerald Theater in Saint Paul for the annual Season Opener and Meatloaf Supper.

We’re inviting you to join in on the fun by hosting your own local listening/viewing party to coincide with the APHC season opener.

Organize a get together with your friends or family to watch this special live broadcast and turn your home or favorite gathering place into Lake Wobegon for the evening.

For example, you could…host your own meatloaf supper (served with plenty of ketchup) before the show; hold A Prairie Home Companion Tailgate Party; ask your guests to dress up as Guy Noir, Dusty and Lefty or other favorite characters; make it a double feature by showing the A Prairie Home Companion movie before/after the live show; hold your viewing party in a Lutheran church basement, public park or other different location.

Let your imagination run wild. Submit your idea using the form below and we’ll pick five winners. Winners will be selected based on creativity and how well they capture the spirit of Lake Wobegon.

Winning parties will receive A Prairie Home Companion 40th Anniversary party décor (balloons, centerpieces, placemats, posters), a Lake Wobegon population sign to display at your event and have their party photos featured on our website and via social media.

In addition, the five winning party hosts will be entered in a drawing to win an A Prairie Home Companion party kit to include beer pitcher, pint glasses and personalized Lake Wobegon doormat. All party guests will also have the opportunity to win an A Prairie Home Companion prize kit including Powdermilk biscuit mix, APHC cribbage board & puzzle, APHC re-usable tote bag and a Guy Noir Bobblehead Doll.

Entry Deadline Sept. 1, 2014. We are no longer accepting entries for this contest.
