What You Need to Know If You Go To Oktoberfest

We’ve been waiting all year for this and it’s finally here! The 5th annual Sierra Nevada OktoberFest happens at 5 p.m. Oct. 12 at Six Row Field, 100 Sierra Nevada Way in Mills River.

It’s the music, the entertainment (like glass blowing), the food, the contests, and, of course, the beer. Come in costume and hoist a stein to craft beer as this annual festival draws thousands to the area every year. Be sure to try Sierra Nevada’s new OktoberFest Collaboration.

There’s also a Chicken Dance contest and a Flash Your ‘Stache competition, so be prepared to laugh and have a good (and goofy) time.

General admission tickets are $32 and include a contemporary German dinner by the Sierra Nevada Taproom, your first Beer/Snack ticket, and a commemorative stein. Other prices range from $27 to $5.
