EARN YOUR BIER THIS YEAR
AT OKTOBERFEST ATLANTA 2019
OCTOBER 11 & 12
Join in on a free bodyweight workout at the festival at
Historic Fourth Ward Park Saturday morning
Oktoberfest Atlanta, produced by Atlanta Sport and Social Club, will take place at Historic
Fourth Ward Park on Friday, October 11 from 5:00 pm to 11:00 pm and Saturday, October 12 from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm.
In celebration of all things German, the festival is in its fourth year and will be bigger than ever
with more food vendor choices and multiple Oktoberfest-style beer tents throughout the
park. For the first time ever, attendees can “earn their bier” by reserving a spot for the Saturday 9:45 am, large group workout session right on the festival grounds. The workout is intended to help keep off that first bier or “pump up those guns” in anticipation of the stein curls necessary for the Stein Hoisting competition.
The festival has teamed up with some of our city’s top gyms, studios, and fitness enthusiasts to get attendees moving. Partners include Smugs Fitness, Rukus Cycling Studios, Fitwit, Vesta Movement, and Omni Fight Club — all offering discounts when drop-in’s mention the phrase Oktoberfest Atlanta at any of the participating facilities.
The celebration is the largest German festival to take place in Atlanta — a tremendous party complete with live polka music, popular food vendors, costumes, and even a dog parade. The festival will attract approximately 7,000 attendees over the two days.
“After 3 years of Oktoberfest Atlanta, our team finally decided to hop across the pond and visit Munich for Oktoberfest last week. Our team visited multiple tents, talked to locals, dressed up, and enjoyed traditional cuisine. We are excited to continue to bring the traditional elements we discovered in Germany to Oktoberfest Atlanta, while staying true to our ATL roots.” shared Catie Schreiman, Event Director.
Another exciting first for 2019, appearances by local Atlantans and nationally recognized
artists GREG MIKE, founder and creative director of ABV Agency and Gallery and Karen
Anderson Singer, Principal Artist and Director of Tiny Doors ATL who will collaborate artistically with Oktoberfest Atlanta. GREG MIKE has been named Ceremonial Keg Tapper while Karen Anderson Singer will also make an appearance and unveil new, Tiny Door figures as an homage to the Oktoberfest season traditionally celebrated in Munich, Germany.
Additional Oktoberfest Atlanta guest experiences include three different beer gardens including official Oktoberfest Atlanta craft beer sponsor Bell’s Brewing Beer Garden, Spaten Franziskaner Brau Biergarten — one of the original Oktoberfest beers of German— featuring four Spaten varieties, Oktoberfest Optimizer Lager, and Dunkel and a German Bier Garden with assorted German beers. In addition, Michelob Ultra, Bon & Viv Sparkling Seltzer, and craft cocktails including Bulleit Bourbon, Lunazul Tequila, Smirnoff Vodka, as well as various wines will be flowing from an Airstream trailer.
This year, Bud Light will sponsor a premium College Football Viewing Experience. The bar has a handful of built-in, flat screen televisions and a giant 12’x7.5′ LED display for guests to enjoy the college football games.
For those active guests, there will be an abundance of games including Oktoberfest Atlanta competitions such as axe throwing, stein hoisting contests, the brawt toss, keg roll racing, the pretzel toss, and a whimsical dog parade.
German-inspired food for purchase will include Atlanta BBQ pros Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q featuring a specially made Oktoberfest Dog with house sauerkraut, apples, and Arches Brewing Pilsner with chutney garnish. As well as family owned and operated Woodstock Pretzel Company, and Petite Violette who will be serving up Schnitzel, sauerkraut, and potato salad. Plus, Scratch Cuisine, The Local Pizziola, The Pup Truck, The Mad Greek, Brooke Lynn’s Own Sticks & Cones, Let’s Taco Bout It, WOW pretzels, Tamara’s Candy Apples, Wheelies Donuts, and The German Food who will fly in from the homeland and participate with a limited, authentic menu.
Live music includes national act, LynnMarie & The Nashville Polka Guys — LynnMarie is in the Polka National Hall of Fame, Sherri & Larry AKA “The Gluckliches Trio,” Bob Planner (solo accordionist), and local Atlanta acts, Ty Reynolds Band and All The Locals. Plus, DJ OneNate will perform throughout on both days.
Local nonprofit support is an important focus for festival owners Atlanta Sport and Social Club. Several nonprofits will benefit from ticket sales including, Releash Atlanta, Concrete Jungle, Junior Chamber International Atlanta Chapter, Playworks GA, Community Bucket, Chopart, and Goethe Zentrum Atlanta. Releash Atlanta has been a continuous partner with the festival for the last three years. They are a 501c3, not for profit, 100% volunteer run, charitable organization that focuses on saving dogs from high kill shelters throughout our state. Since the organization operates solely on donations and volunteers, it is a prime choice for the festival to support.
