Grab your stein and join Fountain Events, Inc. for the 10th Annual Oktoberfest celebration in Fountain Park on September 29th & 30th from 5:00 to 10:00pm. Bring the family, and enjoy the authentic traditions of a “Volksfest” right down to the tables prepared in Bavarian blue and white, which are the colors of the celebration in Munich.
Mayor Linda Kavanagh will tap the official beer keg on Friday evening opening Oktoberfest with “O Zapft Is”, meaning it’s been tapped! The mouthwatering Warsteiner beer direct from Germany will be served in four varieties. Delicious foot-long Brats with homemade potato salad and Sauerkraut will again be prepared following authentic German recipes. Fountain Hills Oktoberfest’s favorite band from Germany, “Die Echten Waldbuam” will entertain festival goers both nights with popular songs. The popular Beer Stein Holding Contest is back, raise your steins full of German beer and…hold them out in front of you for as long as you can. The popular children’s entertainment area is back free of charge with bounce houses, and a climbing wall.
Come out with your family and friends, enjoy yourselves and support all the vendors, sponsors and service organizations that make up the 100+ volunteers to serve you. Local service organizations such as Sister Cities, Four Peaks Rotary, Noon Kiwanis, Elks and Veterans partner with Fountain Events to provide services, and raise funds for their respective organizations. Proceeds from the event are dedicated to the programs these organizations support. To miss it would be the wurst.
Admission is $5, free for children under 12 and folks dressed in Oktoberfest attire such as lederhosen and dirndl. For more information, please visit www.fountaineventsaz.com/oktoberfest-at-the-fountain/
