OKTOBERFEST 101

Presented by the Apex Sunrise and Cary MacGregor Rotary Clubs in collaboration with the Town of Cary and Cary’s Booth Amphitheatre, the 5th Annual Triangle Oktoberfest, the largest in Central NC, is an authentic German festival focused on family fun, traditional Bavarian food and fare, and plenty of original German and seasonal Oktoberfest beers, all to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and other great causes within our community and abroad.

Live entertainment will again showcase The Polka Brothers from NYC (a group of 4 young men know for a repertoire of classic polka favorites, original compositions, and cover versions of songs from artists such as Aerosmith, Weezer, Lady Gaga, and the Rolling Stones), the most exciting Wiener Dog Races & Parade in NC, a kid-friendly Kinder Platz (inflatables, face painting, and more), Masskrugstemmen (Stein Hoist) and Hammerschlagen (Hammer-Striking) Competitions, and yes, Yodeling (a big success last year).


TRADITIONAL BEER, FOOD, AND FARE

  • Over 40 beers including Hofbrau, Paulaner, Bitburger, Konig Ludwig Dunkel, Ayinger, and Spaten, each from a famous Bierhaus in Mὓnich, along with a host of seasonal Oktoberfest beers from R.A. Jeffrey’s and several of our favorite local craft breweries.
  • Traditional Bavarian food from Capital Club 16, Annelore’s German Bakery, Tribecca Tavern, other local vendors, and, of course, fire-grilled Brats from the Butcher’s Market!
  • Option for unlimited beer sampling glasses. Enjoy, but please drink responsibly.
  • Souvenir mugs, ceramic steins, Alpine hats, and more!
