The 2014 Ultimate Guide To Addison’s Oktoberfest

Oktoberfestby Steven Doyle

Named one of the country’s most authentic Oktoberfest celebrations by Forbes and USA Today, Addison Oktoberfest features four days of family-oriented entertainment. German entertainers in authentic costumes perform traditional Bavarian folk dances, schuhplattling, oompah music, sing-a-longs, yodels and more. A special “Oktoberfest” Paulaner Bier is served along with several types of German sausage, sauerkraut, strudel, giant pretzels and more. There are carnival rides, midway games, children’s entertainment and activities and a 5K run and 1 mile fun run benefiting Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer.

For guests who visit Munich’s famed Oktoberfest, the ticket to have is in the VIP balconies of the 14 bier tents at the festival. At Addison Oktoberfest, the massive 30,000 square foot Schloss Addison tent has a similar opportunity. Noted chef and restaurateur Richard Chamberlain will host Chamberlain’s Brau Haus, a full-service restaurant overlooking the Addison Oktoberfest busy dance floor.

    Ladies beware! This used to be a great festival, attended four years running but it has turned into a money grab for Addison. Here’s how it works;

    The police stand around and wait for a female to be left alone, eg. boyfriend/spouse goes to the bathroom, to concessions, to get the vehicle, etc., then they approach the female and accuse of public intoxication and off to jail you go. It is Oktoberfest, so of course the intoxication is valid and now fines are instituted to supplement the city coffers.

    If this story had happened to only my wife (38 yrs old), you could just say “sour grapes” or “bad luck”. However, when I went to bail my wife out of jail, this story was shared by at least 7 other women in the holding cell. I spoke with another husband bailing his wife out and the scenario was the same except he went to get the car to take his wife home when she was abducted and held for ransome by the police.

    It can be fun, but you have been warned about how the scam works
