Sunday, October 6th – Noon-5pm
This year’s headline Oompah band is the Gootman Sauerkraut Band; in addition to live Oompah music there will be authentic German dancers, a wide selection of German beers and a variety of delicious Oktoberfest food options. The first 1000 festival attendees will receive a free commemorative beer stein.
Blackbaud Stadium will once again be transformed into a Bavarian-style beer hall with big tents along the South concourse for the stage and beer trestle-tables. The main beer vendors will also be arranged on the concourse. New this year there will be delicious pastries available by Rococo Bakery.
Children’s events during the afternoon include mini-soccer games on the stadium field, a Mountain Slide, an inflatable combination game, and jump castles presented by Charleston Jump Castles. Oktoberfest attendees are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn-chairs!
Tickets are only $5 in advance ($8 day of event) and can be purchased at the Blackbaud Stadium box office, by calling (843) 971-4625 – or online here. You can also purchase tickets for $5 at the gate with a toy donation to Live 5 News Deb’s Kids.
