Special to the
The sights, sounds and tastes of Germany are making their way to Ag Heritage Park for Auburn Oktoberfest’s 10-year anniversary. The event will take place on Sept. 21 from 4 to 8 p.m.
This year’s festival will feature 75-plus breweries showcasing more than 150 beers, food trucks with both local eats and traditional German fare, plus live entertainment from Kidd Blue and a traditional Oompah band. The popular Homebrew Alley will also return, along with a selection of German wines.
To help celebrate the event’s 10-year anniversary, the more than 2,000 expected guests can enjoy a biergarten selling craft beers from breweries attending the event. Additionally, attendees can participate in a variety of contests, including keg racing, stein hoisting, Mr. & Mrs. Oktoberfest, and back by PUPular demand, wiener dog racing. For football fans, plenty of TVs will be set up throughout the festival showing the day’s games.
“We are so excited for the 10th anniversary of Auburn Oktoberfest!” said Festival Organizer Adam Keeshan. “This event has grown over the past decade to be the largest Oktoberfest in Alabama, and this year’s festivities should be better than ever.”
Festival tickets and hotel packages are currently on sale. Tickets are expected to sell out for the fourth year in a row, and guests are encouraged to buy early. Tickets may be purchased online at auoktoberfest.com.
Those interested in participating in Homebrew Alley are encouraged to contact Keeshan at email@example.com or Allison Duke at firstname.lastname@example.org.
