With Labour Day upon us, we here at Alberta Beer Festivals feel like it’s time to start getting excited about Oktoberfest! This year we decided to celebrate the people who are just as excited about Oktoberfest as we are by holding a draw for 5 rafting trips from our friends and partners at Alpine Rafting. Anyone who bought tickets during our opening week campaign were entered into the draw. Congratulations goes out to: Ryan R., Michelle G., Teresa B., Becky P., and Christ M.!

About Calgary Oktoberfest, Edmonton Oktoberfest, and Alberta Beer Week! Alberta Beer Festivals is proud to announce that Calgary Oktoberfest (September 23/24) will once again be the opening ceremonies for Alberta Beer Week, with Edmonton Oktoberfest (Sept. 30 / Oct. 1) acting as the closing ceremonies the following weekend! Both events are sampling events and will allow people to sample some of Alberta’s amazing breweries as well as breweries from across Canada and around the world. There will also be amazing restaurants and eateries on site to sample from, authentic Bavarian dancers, an official Oompah band, games, singing, and more! We encourage everyone to get in the spirit and dress up in Dirndl or Liederhosen to get even more into this worldwide celebration of beer!
