Asheville Oktoberfest

October 11, 2014
Don't miss the fun and tasty Oktoberfest in downtown Asheville on Coxe Avenue (between Hilliard Avenue and Buxton Street). It mixes Bavarian traditions with Asheville’s eclectic vibe. It's a perfect time to celebrate our local beer scene. The ticketed event runs noon until 6 PM. Buying advance tickets is recommended since it will probably sell out.

The event features beer tastings from local breweries including Asheville Brewing Company, Catawba Valley Brewing Company, French Broad Brewery, Green Man Brewery, Highland Brewing Company, Hi-Wire Brewing, Lexington Avenue Brewery (LAB), Oskar Blues Brewery, Pisgah Brewing, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, with many brewers featuring seasonal ales for Oktoberfest. The brewers will also be on hand to discuss their beers.

Entertainment
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!”

Contests
The popular Oktoberfest Games are back as well with favorites like the stein race and keg-rolling contest along with new feats to conquer.

Tickets
With only 3,000 to sell and at only $25 per person, tickets will go quickly. Tickets are $25 until September 9. They will increase to $30 on September 10 and $35 on October 10. If tickets are still available the day of the festival, they will be $40.

Tickets will be available August 12 at ashevilledowntown.org. Last year’s event was a huge success and this year’s event is expected to sell out, so purchase early!
