Addison Oktoberfest Has Some Big Changes This Year

Oktoberfestby Steven Doyle

With a mere three weeks away the Addison Oktoberfest has some changes in the program worth noting. As in years past we will continue to keep our readers informed about one of  our favorite events in the area.

Here are the changes we have noted so far:

Chamberlain’s Brau Haus:  Richard Chamberlain takes over the VIP dining experience with a new tasting menu, special gifts and more. This is huge news.

The all new Draught Haus:  This replaces the former SportHalle (inside and around the Conference Centre) and will be designed and operated by State Fair fried food king Isaac Rousse (he of the fried Pop Tart and this year’s Fried Cuban Sandwich.)

Kaffee und Kuchen Haus update:  The team at Polk A Dot bakery takes over this favorite with an expanded bakery menu and more treats all weekend long.   


Check out some of the old favorites making its way back into the program:

Live music all weekend long, including Brave Combo, the Munich Evergreens and Alpenmusikanten.

Thursday’s official Keg Tapping – 8 p.m. Thursday evening, September 19

German Idol Yodeling Contest – Friday night at 9 p.m

German Spelling Bee – Friday night at 7:30 p.m.

German dancing and shuhplattling!

MassKrug contest – preliminaries begin this Thursday at The Quarter and continue every week at an Addison watering hole.  The FINALS, where the big prizes are, are on Friday night of the event.

Oktoberfest 5K, benefiting Wipe Out Kids Cancer – the perfect way to spend a Saturday.

Bier Barrel Bowling and Bier Barrel Rolling contests.

Dachshund Sunday with Dachshund races and the parade!  Hundreds of ‘wiener dogs’ all over the park.
