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 1-6 PM. Buying advance tickets is recommended since it will probably sell out. It's a 21 and over festival.

Oktoberfest will also feature traditional German lagers from Spaten-Franziskaner and Chateau Ste. Michelle will be sampling several wines from their line. New this year is local hard cider maker Noble Cider. hand-crafted from local apples. Also new is Twin Leaf Brewery, which opened recently nearby on the South Slope.

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!” The popular Oktoberfest Games include the stein race, pretzel toss, stein hoist and keg-rolling contest
