Yeah, we might be asking you out on a date…
Oktoberfest is Coming to Lexington, South Carolina!
And we’ll be celebrating Lexington’s German heritage, as we were founded in 1735 as “Saxe Gotha,” named after Princess Augusta of the German Duchy of Saxe-Gotha.
German history not your thing? No worries. Oktoberfest has something for everyone! First of all, admission is free. Check out the “German Village” from noon to 5, where you can visit arts and craft vendors, free giveaways, and activities for the youngins (like the bouncy castles, face painting, crafts, balloons… yeah, you get the picture). Local businesses will provide an eclectic mix of activities, giveaways and services for the entire family! In the center of it all will be the Oompah Tent: authentic German food, German beer & live German music from noon until 10pm. Food and beer tickets may be purchased at the event ticket tents. Each ticket is $2.
After 5:30pm Oktoberfest is going to be joined by it’s good friend Rocktoberfest, brought to you by Main Street Cafe of Lexington! Live Music will be provided by Going Commando and Brian Connor and Freinds on an outdoor stage. Two tickets (or $4) will be required for entry. American beers will be available on the Rocktoberfest side (if you can’t handle deutches beer). Live German music will still be playing and German food and beer will be served in the Oompah tent all the way until 10pm as well! Don’t worry, access to Rocktoberfest will get you a bracelet, so you will be able to freely enter and exit Rocktoberfest in case you have a late night craving for more German food and beer!
