The Halifax Oktoberfest is a yearly celebration of German heritage organized by Garrison Brewing and the German Canadian Association (GCA). Launched in 2009, HFX Oktoberfest attracts hundreds of locals and visitors alike to the historic Seaport District to enjoy authentic Bavarian cuisine, beverages, and music while raising money for The Halifax & Region Military Family Resource Centre, and the GCA.
Join us on Pavilion 20 on September 21st and enjoy locally made strudels, sauerkraut, Bratwurst sausages, and cold craft beer. This year, the Oktoberfest will be split into two separate events. From 11:30 am – 6:00 pm we’ll be hosting a free market-wide, authentic celebration that the whole family can enjoy including a German Auto Show & The British Automotive Touring Association of Nova Scotia’s “Live Drive” for ALS. The traditional tapping of the cask will kick off the celebration at 12:00 followed by dancing, keg bowling and live music by Die Holzhacker Bub’n, and Die Brewmasters!
Then, from 7:00-midnight we’ll open the gates back up and throw an 19+ Oktoberfest party you won’t forget featuring The Roving Steins and party-favourite, Hawco! Tickets are $12.00 & available at the gate!
Did we mention, there will be craft beer all day ? PROSIT!
