2015 Oktoberfest: $50,000 to Charities!

Submitted by marketing on Wed, 01/06/2016 - 07:34

Thank you for helping us make 2015 Charlotte Oktoberfest a success! Come rain and high water, we had almost 4000 patrons, sponsors, vendors, breweries and volunteers! Having so many people participate on all fronts allowed us to give $12,500 to each of our four charity recipients!!! That is a total given of $50,000 this year - amazing!

This is all thanks to all of you. We thank you and couldn't do it without you! We look forward to seeing you all out on October 1, 2016 for the 18th Charlotte Oktoberfest!

To all of our patrons, breweries, charities, distributors, sponsors, vendors, volunteers, venue crews, and all other partners - THANK YOU for coming out and making 2015's Charlotte Oktoberfest an amazing time despite a bit of rain here & there on the grounds!

For all of you who made the decision not to come due to the weather, we missed you and hope to see you next year, and were glad you made the decision you felt best for yourselves. Thank you for still supporting our festival even if just in thought!

Rain or Shine

Submitted by WebAdmin on Wed, 09/30/2015 - 18:57

We understand rain is forecasted for Saturday. This is a rain or shine event the event will go on as scheduled. We have added 3 additional 20’ x 20’ tents in the field for additional shelter from the rain and there is some shelter available at the Brewers tents. The festival site has plenty of slope for draining and is also packed gravel, so drainage should not be a problem. This is the sole reason we moved to this site 2 years ago. We hope you enjoy the festival! Cheers!

Simplified 4:15 - 6:00 PM

Simplified LogoWhen the laid back vibe of Myrtle Beach, SC meets acoustic rock of Lake Michigan, Simplified, the island rock band arrives with a loud and welcoming splash. In 2002, Clee Laster of SC and Chris Sheridan a MI native, started out as an acoustic duo. Early on, both musicians displayed innate musical capabilities, which were passed down from family members, and inspired by a diverse collection of original influences. They both grew up on the water, in different parts of the country, but the beach life-blood continues to surge within their suntanned souls, flowing forth in passionate, fun, and energetic jams.

TANTRUM 2:00 - 3:30 PM
