Reposted from Trinity River Vision Authority
Achtung, y’all! Tickets are on sale now for Oktoberfest Fort Worth - a three-day Munich-style celebration at Panther Island Pavilion! Early online ticket purchases are guaranteed a free 2019 commemorative Oktoberfest stein.
Oktoberfest Fort Worth guests enjoy traditional German food, bier, live music, dancing, shopping vendors and much more. The festival kicks off with Thursday’s ceremonial ‘Tapping of the Kegs’ and the fun continues through Saturday with midway rides, dachshund races, stein hoist competitions, the Oktoberfest Run und Ride and more.
Entertainment will include traditional German music, on multiple stages. New this year, Alex Meixner, nationally acclaimed polka and Oktoberfest performer will join the line-up. Alpenmusikaten, Walburg Boys, Alpine Village Band, Das Ist Lustig and Auf Geht’s will be back again with polka and all of your Oktoberfest favorites.
Spaten will be served, along with other Fall and Oktoberfest craft beers from around the country. Traditional German food offerings such as bratwursts, pretzels, strudel, schnitzel and German potato pancakes will also be available. Festival goers can enjoy the air-conditioned Spaten Hall as well as multiple outdoor and tented biergartens. Shopping vendors will be on hand with traditional German Lederhosen or Dirndl and a variety of other German accessories.
Back by popular demand is Reata Haus – a unique German pop-up restaurant – now with no VIP ticket or reservation required. Reata Haus offers table-service in the air-conditioned Spaten Halle, authentic German cuisine and a Weinbar for attendees to purchase a glass of wine.
Festival tickets range from $5-$15 and are available for purchase online through September 25. Advance tickets are guaranteed a free 2019 commemorative Oktoberfest stein. While supplies last, a limited number of steins will be available for tickets purchased at the gate. Admission is free for children under 12 years of age with a paying adult.
Coming back this year is a special festival preview experience on Wednesday, September 25 that offers corporations or individuals the opportunity to purchase a table of eight for a private evening of culture and celebration complete with a plated German meal from Reata Haus. Enjoy entertainment, bier and more!
