Don't miss the fun and tasty Oktoberfest on Wall Street in downtown Asheville. It mixes Bavarian traditions with Asheville’s eclectic vibe. With Asheville’s recent recognition as "Beer City USA," it's a perfect time to celebrate our local beer scene. Plus, Wall Street is an ideal venue for this event with its old world feel and original cobblestones.
Food and Drink
The event will feature beer tastings from local breweries including Highland Brewing, Asheville Brewing Company, Pisgah Brewing, Green Man Brewery, and French Broad Brewing Company. Many brewers are featuring seasonal ales for Oktoberfest, and will be on hand to discuss their beers. Also, Wall Street restaurants will be preparing authentic German food fare including bratwurst, Bavarian Pretzels and traditional sides.
Internationally-renowned “oompah” band, The Stratton Mountain Boys, returns to the stage with happy yodeling songs, shoe-slapping dances and lively spirited Polka music sure to incite dancing in the street and rousing cheers of “Prost!”
The popular Oktoberfest Games are back as well with favorites like the stein race and keg-rolling contest along with new feats to conquer.
With only 1,800 to sell and at only $25 per person, tickets will go quickly. Tickets may or may not be available at the event, but will be $35 that day. Tickets will be available September 1 at ashevilledowntown.org. Last year’s event was a huge success and this year’s event is expected to sell out, so purchase early!
