2016 marks the seventh year of The Hotel at Auburn University’s Oktoberfest. For the first three years, the event was held in the intimate setting of our Terrace Room and around our pool, allowing for about 150 attendees. Three years ago we decided to expand the event, and we moved Oktoberfest to its current location in our parking lot. We expect an attendance of 1,500 craft beer enthusiasts at this year’s Oktoberfest.
Each local, regional and national brewery in attendance will showcase a small selection of beers, giving attendees an opportunity to sample a variety of great brews. Select breweries will also present one-off beers, which are brewed specifically to be served at the Oktoberfest event. A selection of German Oktoberfest staples will be available for purchase.
Performances by an Oompah Band along with local performers will serve as the soundtrack to this funfilled event. Televisions playing college football will also be setup within the festival for the football fans. Several contests encouraging crowd participation will take place throughout the evening including best costume & beer stein holding competition.
We are in the process of planning the 2016 Oktoberfest. Please check back for more information!
