We’ve published a couple of posts about opportunities to celebrate Oktoberfest this month, and ironically have one more post to share with you before the month of October even rolls around. Apparently, it’s hard to define the celebratory period for this German celebration beyond “around the beginning of fall.”
If you enjoy beer, hard cider, mead, food trucks, live music, and plenty of entertainment, we imagine you aren’t too concerned about when the actual Oktoberfest holiday is designed to fall (no pun intended). You just want to know when and where.
Fair enough. The Herron-Morton Place is holding its third annual Oktoberfest in the historic Herron-Morton Place Park. All the proceeds from this Oktoberfest celebration go towards a park endowment, which is why they’re asking for a $7 admission price (plus $1.34 Eventbrite fee). The sales of these admission tickets end on Friday, September 27, but the Oktoberfest itself takes place from 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 28.

If you attend, you can look forward to some excellent food trucks, along with food provided from local restaurants. Whether you prefer pizza grilled in front of you or you want the truly authentic experience with German brats to go with the beer, you’ll find plenty of delicious reasons to enjoy Oktoberfest. Finally, you can look forward to seeing the following live music groups performing at these times:
3:30-4:30 p.m.: Looking for Astronauts
5:00-6:00 p.m.: Rugged Russian Bear
6:30-7:30 p.m.: Matthew Ferris Band
8:00-9:15 p.m.: Pravada
