2015 Edmonton Oktoberfest
The Tradition Continues!
Alberta Beer Festivals presents the 2nd annual Edmonton Oktoberfest October 2nd and 3rd at the Expo Centre at Northlands. Oktoberfest is an amazing opportunity to sample new craft beers, amazing local food, all in a fun environment.
“Prost! Edmonton Oktoberfest is a celebration of food, community and craft beer! This one-of-a-kind sampling event combines the over 200 year-old German tradition with amazing Alberta craft beer and some of Edmonton’s best restaurants, pubs and eateries,” says Bill Robinson, President of Alberta Beer Festivals. “This is a new take on a very old tradition, and Edmontonians have embraced the idea by dressing up in their lederhosen or dirndl, coming out, singing, dancing, and having a great time in support of our charities of choice.”
What to Expect
Similar to the original Munich festival which celebrates local beer, Edmonton Oktoberfest will feature local and authentic Bavarian breweries. Sample beers like no other with special casks, each holding one of eight different locally brewed beers just for this event! In addition to the amazing craft beer selection, some of Edmonton’s best restaurants and pubs will showcase their delicious food at Oktoberfest! You can also listen to live authentic Bavarian music by the German Knights Band and dance the night away with Schuhplattler dancers showing you all the right moves.

Alberta Beer Festivals – Brewing Beer Culture
At Alberta Beer Festivals, we strive to educate our fellow Albertans on all things beer related! Part of what we do is promote craft beer created in our own back yard, in addition to creating a brew culture with positive experiences for everyone.
