September 29 – October 1, 2017
The Town of Stowe’s event field will be transformed into a Bavarian village, under a traditional tent this year for this annual celebration of the harvest and fall foliage. From Oompah bands to authentic Bavarian foods and freshly brewed Vermont beers to traditional sing-a-longs and dancing, even a silent auction… there’s something for every “villager”… young and old. It’s a weekend full of music, dancing, and of course great beer. Voted a ‘Top 10 Event in Vermont’‘, Oktoberfest is a great time for a good cause. Last year, Oktoberfest allowed Stowe Rotary to provide over $50,000.00 worth of support to over twenty local charities and scholarships in the greater Lamoille/Washington County region.
The event officially begins Friday, from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. at the Stowe Events Field with Rocktoberfest! Beer, wine and wursts available for purchase.
Family Bike Parade – Saturday, 9:30 a.m.
The Family Bike Parade begins on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at 9:30 a.m. at the start of the Stowe Recreation Path. Deck out your bike as we celebrate the start of Oktoberfest. The Helen Day Art Center will be on hand to help you create your very own Oktoberfest inspired “pedal powered, two wheeled float.” At 10:30am, join the parade as we bike on the path to the opening gates of Oktoberfest!
All participants on bikes receive FREE admission to Oktoberfest and a FREE raffle ticket to win a kid’s mountain bike package valued at $400!
