ABF (August15, 2016) Don your Dirndl and Lederhosen at this year’s Calgary Oktoberfest (sept 23 & 24) and Edmonton Oktoberfest (Sept 30 & Oktober 1).  There’s no better way to enjoy the festivities than to dress up, dance and have fun with the authentic German Knights Band and Schuhplattler Dancers!


“Oktoberfest is about celebration and fun, and we want everyone to join in! The German Knights play traditional German Oomph music. We even have Schuhplattler Dancers to show you all the right moves and get you up on your feet,” says Mark Kondrat, ABF’s Director of Operations.


Don’t have dirndl or lederhosen? Alberta Beer Festivals has you covered, Oktoberfest hats and t-shirts are available when you buy your tickets online or onsite at Oktoberfest!


What to Expect
Similar to the original Munich festival which celebrates local beer, Oktoberfest will feature local and authentic Bavarian breweries. Sample beers like no other from special locally brewed casks, sample from an amazing beer selection and try some delicious food from Alberta’s best restaurants and pubs at Oktoberfest!
