Prost! It's time to roll out the barrels, slip on your lederhosen and get set for family fun and an Oompa-pa good time with fantastic activities and outdoor entertainment. From noon to 6 pm, the Creemore Springs Biergarten in the Events Plaza is the center of the action with Bavarian-inspired food and drink served up by Copper Blues, live music, traditional dancers, fun and games, and much more. "Celebrity Bartender" Kevin Brauch, host of The Thirsty Traveler on the Fine Living Network and Superstar Chef Challenge on Food Network Canada, will emcee the event to add a little something special to the festivities.
Drink, dance and be German!
It starts with the ceremonial tapping of the keg and just keeps rolling from there with the 3-piece Beer Barrel Band, guaranteed to get you in the spirit. Then the Alpine Dancers Club gets up on their feet to showcase traditional German dancing. The live music continues all afternoon with folk/pop/rock singer Felicia McMinn performing well-known covers and original songs, singer/songwriter Charlotte Cornfield with her crowd-pleasing mix of traditional folk and contemporary tunes, and the amazing Shawn Brady who gets everyone up and dancing to popular acoustic rock!
There's a whole Village around that biergarten and late night parties
In addition to the beer garden, you can sample a variety of local brews and German-inspired fare all day at Village hot-spots - aka mini-festhalls - Rusty's, Kaytoo, Copper Blues, MJ Byrne's, Tholos, Firehall Pizza Co., Twist Martini Bar & more (to be announced). And when the sun goes down things really heat up with each of these venues hosting their own Oktoberfest party.
