FOOD ... FOOD ... FOOD

Food is another big part of every Oktoberfest Celebration.  The most popular foods are Bratwurst, Sauerkraut, Cold Slaw, and of course the Bavarian Pretzel.  Here are a few food options for you:

What is a traditional Oktoberfest meal?

Beer Brats – German bratwurst simmered in a malty beer and onions sauce. Serve with mashed potatoes as a plated entree or on soft pretzel bun. Schweinshaxe – fall-off-the-bone tender Bavarian roasted pork hocks with deliciously crispy skin and a beer gravy.  For more info on the most popular Oktoberfest Meals go to: https://www.foodandwine.com/cooking-techniques/11-foods-you-need-oktoberfest-feast

MUSIC ... MUSIC ... MUSIC ...

OOMPAH ... POLKA ... CHICKEN DANCE ... FLEDERLING

Music is very important to a great Oktoberfest!

We are proud to import our friends from the Kalifornia Krauts.

Known Escapes and the Trio Choompah Band , the Chico Oompah Band.

Now, let's face it as modern-day Americans, very few of us can spend a whole day frolicking to German Polka Music... Ya ?   ,,, YA!

So, our Kalifornia Krauts Band plays some modernized polka and some absolutely great party music.  In combination with Noah from Know Escapes and his solo Oktoberfest medlie, our Chico Oompah Band and a DJ to play for us , we have found the right combination of music!
