Plano can keep out their lederhosen a little longer, as Legacy Hall will be hosting its sixth annual Oktoberfeast event on Saturday, Sept. 30.
Inspired by Oktoberfest, the renowned beer festival that takes place in Munich, this year’s Oktoberfeast event will be jam-packed with fun and festive activities — oh, and plenty of brews, of course.
The day’s festivities will kick off with a male and female steinholding competition. This year’s test of endurance will come with higher stakes as well, as competitors have the chance to qualify for the state championship, which will be taking place at Altstadt Brewery in Fredericksburg, Tx, on Oct. 21.
Following the feat of strength, the Dogensteins will be taking the stage to perform their unique style of polka music live for everyone in-attendance. Other entertainment planned for the event includes a keg hoisting competition, a Mr. and Mrs. Oktoberfeast contest, a beard and mustache competition, an 80’s-inspired after-party (separate ticket purchase required) and more.
Attendees should make sure that they arrive with empty stomachs, as the event will be offering mouth-watering, German-inspired dishes such as Jalapeño Cheddar Sausage on a stick from Dry Rub and Bavarian Jumbo Soft Pretzels from The Philly Special.
Beer lovers looking to get into the spirit of the event can purchase a limited edition, souvenir beer stein — which can be filled with Oktoberfest favorites like Samuel Adams Octoberfest and Unlawful Assembly’s The Antagonist Amber Lager — for $15. Refills will also be available for just $7.
Admission into Oktoberfeast is free, although seating will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.
VIP tickets are also available for $60, which includes access to a VIP seating area, a complimentary beer stein, along with a free sausage and pretzel.
