Oktoberfest coming early to Red Deer

Get ready to dust off your dirndls and lederhosen and celebrate Red Deer’s German festival.

The Spirit of Red Deer presents the second annual Red Deer Oktoberfest on Sept. 20 in the Harvest Centre at Westerner Park.

Organizers promise the opportunity to enjoy flowing pints of beer, traditional food and boisterous camaraderie.

Admission is $50, which includes a commemorative stein filled with craft beer from the Troubled Monk and a tasty German meal, as well as fun Oktoberfest games.

“Oktoberfest welcomes the chance to host a fun community event for central Alberta,” said Iaian Park, a Spirit of Red Deer board member.

“We’re looking forward to having the Harvest Centre filled with delicious smells of German food, lively German music, games, laughter and camaraderie.”

Tickets are on sale now at www.ticketsalberta.com/event/oktoberfest and in person at the Troubled Monk.
