Great Big Dtown Oktoberfest
Date: Saturday, October 27, 2012 Show Starts: 12:00 pm
With: Oompah w/ Little German Band / Bulltown Strutters / Suds / Sausages
On Saturday October 27th, Motorco Music Hall invites the community to don their lederhosen or drindl and raise a Spaten mug to Dtown Oktoberfest. The free, family-friendly event begins at noon with a mini-parade lead by the Bulltown Strutters to kick off the festivities.
Good beer and celebrations will be the order of the day with Motorco dressed as a traditional beer hall, inside and out. It wouldn’t be Oktoberfest without a little Oompah, so expect to hear music from The Little German Band accompanied by traditional dancers from 1PM-4PM. Fifteen dancers and musicians on stage and counting...
While Bavarian Oktoberfest-goers are said to consume 35,000 gallons of beer, Motorco can’t promise to fulfill that demand. However, there will be plenty of Spaten Oktoberfest, the world's premier Oktoberfest beer, served in Liter & 1/2 Liter Steins. Traditional German bratwurst with all the trimmings will be available as well as German pretzels.
For those who have not yet sated their Oktoberfest craving, the party will continue into the evening with a live show by AC Newman (New Pornographers) and the Mynabirds. Doors open at 8PM and the show begins at 9PM. Tickets for this show are separate and available here.
The Little German Band
Oompah party music from America! Equally at home in a Bavarian fest tent or an American barbecue, the Little German Band and Dancers bring Oktoberfest to you year-round. Join us for "Ein Prosit der Gemütlichkeit", and maybe a Chicken Dance or two.
Bulltown Strutters is a community parade band, inspired by street band traditions from New Orleans to Brazil and beyond. Our intention is to build camaraderie with fun music and dance, inspiring onlookers to join the revelry.
