Bend OktoberfestIn addition to the Sisters Fresh Hop Festival going on this weekend, the Bend Oktoberfest will be happening this Friday (today) and Saturday in downtown Bend.  The event is run by the Downtown Bend Business Association, and “benefits Downtown Bend beautification projects.”  This marks the 7th year for the Bend Oktoberfest, and there are plenty of events for both young and not-so-young.

Throughout the event folks can sample traditional Bavarian style music, beers, wines, foods and absurd games of skill for prizes! The Deschutes Brewery German Feast will offer traditional Bavarian foods  including brats, pretzels and more. Food will be served throughout the event in modest portions allowing attendees to try everything. We will be featuring the beer of Bend Brewing Company and Boneyard Beer! Other Central Oregon breweries will also be serving their best Oktoberfest brews and other ales.

All servings are pint pours of brew! We’ll have our yellow steins, limited edition ceramic steins and new for this year, VERY limited edition Oktoberfest Silipints! Note-Silipints and ceramic steins are likely to go quickly so swing by Friday night & grab one!

Check out the website for a more-detailed schedule, which includes:

  • Bend Pet Express Weiner Dog Races
  • Hammer-schlagen competition (race to hammer a nail into a log)
  • The Ducks game at The Stereo Planet Game Center
  • 92/5 Celebrity Yodeling Contest
  • Custom Headwear Oktoberfest Costume contest

Sounds like a great time, so get down there and get your Oom Pa on!
