Friday, September 29
It costs a lot of money and takes a bit of time to travel to Munich, so we decided to bring a little bit of the fun to our hometown and host our own version of OktoberFest -- bringing authentic food, beer and music to the Tussey Mountain Amphitheater! Pack a lawn chair and/or blanket to pick out a spot on the lawn to sit, or arrive early and claim one of our community-style picnic tables!
6:00pm - Bavarian Stompers
8:00pm - Smitty's Polka Band
Food and Beer can be purchased using Tussey Mtn Amphitheater tickets. They cost $1 each and never expire, so if you have leftover WingFest tickets from any season, bring them to OktoberFest!
CASH ONLY! $15.00 at the gate
Tickets CAN BE PURCHASED AT THE GATE!
Ages 12 and under are FREE.
WEAR YOUR LEDERHOSEN!
Each advance purchase comes with a FREE 16oz. Tussey Mtn OktoberFest stein*!
*While supplies last. Beer not included
Featuring performances by
The Bavarian Stompers
SMITTY'S POLKA BAND
Smitty's Polka Band is a group unlike one you've ever seen before. They are a 5 piece combo featuring accordion, guitar, tuba, trumpet, vocals and trombone and their set-list of authentic Bavarian/German Beergarten songs, sung in both German and English, will have you standing, chanting, cheering and chugging all night. They can, and will, switch to classic rock, pop, Hip Hop and Top 40 music at a moment's notice but still played with a Bavarian twist, so start stretching your vocal chords because everyone is encouraged to sing along!
We have a legit selection of official Munich Oktoberfest beers along with some of the best domestic and local brews you will find.
We will have an assortment of wine and liquor drinks available as well - both hot and cold - including some made locally by Big Spring Spirits in addition to other top shelf brands. Warm drinks like Hot Apple Pie (coconut rum, apple juice + cinnamon), and King Cider (Irish Whiskey, hot apple cider + cinnamon) will be on site to order.
Delicious authentic food cooked up by Herwiig's Austrian Bistro and Catering with Style's Dan Rallis, pretzels by Gemelli Bakery, Rosie's Pierogies, Doan's Bones BBQ, Crazy Carl's Kettlecorn and the Weiner Wagon!
A few games will be made available throughout the evening, including Stein Hoist, Keg Toss and Stein Races!
As it happens in Autumn, the temperature drops along with the sun, so we are prepared to help warm everyone up with a nice fire when that happens!
No outside food or beverage. No pets.
