Triad German Club Oktoberfest - Saturday, September 27
Looking to share in the biggest fall festival in Europe? The Triad German Club is hosting its annual Oktoberfest Saturday, September 27, and it promises to draw a pretty big crowd. Just ask anyone who's attended the original Ocktoberfest in Munich, Germany and who would like to recreate the magic in the Triad.
What's in store for the day? A lot of good German-style foods from bratwursts to potato salads to desserts, and let's not forget . . . beer! Oktoberfest wouldn't be Oktoberfest without some good German brews to add to the merriment, not to mention men walking around in lederhosen doing the traditional chicken dance. A sight to see, indeed! You never know, you could spot your neighbor! The Little German Band will provide live music.
Doors open at 5:00 p.m. at the Millennium Center located at 101 West Fifth Street. Admission is $10 in advance. $12 at the door. The Triad German Club is a not-for-profit club that promotes the German language, culture, traditions, and heritage in the North Carolina Triad Region.
