Augustoberfest Weekend Celebration
For the 17th year of Augustoberfest, we will have a two-day festival that boasts festivities found at traditional Oktoberfest celebrations in Bavaria. The event will be on Saturday, August 25, 2012 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday, August 26, 2012 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The attendance of this event has doubled in size over the last two years and is becoming one of the most anticipated festivals in the region.
Augustoberfest will again be working with the Piedmont Pacers to sponsor a volksmarch on August 25, 2012 beginning at 8 a.m. A volksmarch is a non-competitive walk. This event combines fun, fitness and fellowship. This is a 10K walk with a shorter 5K trail for those who desire a shorter distance, and both walks will have a 1K optional addition.
On both Saturday and Sunday, participants will have a chance to enjoy Bavarian food, entertainment and fun. All of our entertainment offers a glimpse into German culture and folklore through authentic music, dance and songs. The popular Alphorn will be back as well. All of these entertainers are crowd pleasers.
An expanded children’s entertainment area will feature a variety of activities. A craft vendor area promises an abundance of holiday and decorative items.
