Lederhosen, beer and all things Bavarian will return to Galleria at Sunset for the third annual Oktoberfest on Saturday, September 28 from 3 to 9 p.m.
“We’re bringing the best of German tradition back to Henderson again this year.” said Jamie Cooper, Galleria at Sunset marketing director. “With more than 15 German and local beers, polka dancing, live Bavarian music, contests and German fare – we anticipate this will be Galleria at Sunset’s most exciting Oktoberfest yet.”
In addition to performances by The Ginger Snaps, and headliner straight from Germany, The Munich Boys, Oktoberfest will welcome KOMP 92.3 to emcee activities, including:
- Guests are encouraged to wear their best Lederhosen and enter the Costume Contest. The winners will be chosen based on the most authentic and elaborate costumes.
- The Beer Stein Race challenges participants to race with steins full of beer and those with the least amount of beer spilled are the winners.
- The Beer Tasting Contest is perfect for German beer lovers. Participants will be tested on their beer knowledge as they taste and try to identify six different German beers.
- The Stein Hoisting Competition is a traditional Bavarian strength contest in which competitors hold a full one-liter beer stein in front of their bodies with a straight arm, parallel to the ground. The last person hoisting is the winner.
There are two options for tickets this year. The $50 per person ticket includes all you can drink, one food item and contest entries. The $25 per person ticket includes three beers, one food item and contest entries. Additional food and beer will be available for purchase. Attendees must be 21 to receive a beer stein and participate in certain contests. Families are welcome to attend and kids are free to enter, but must be accompanied by a parent at all times.
