This year the fun will happen between 1 p.m. and 10 pm. The celebration of the fall and harvest time will highlight the amazing German-style beers Chuckanut is famous for, plus sodas and cider. There will be lots of beer garden games (washers, giant jenga and corn hole), face painters for kids and adults, music including live German Oom pah pah music with Sylvia and German-style beer garden games.
Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen will open their doors at 1 pm to start the festivities. A very limited supply of Chuckanut Oktoberfest 2018 half liter mugs will be available for purchase along with a selection of packaged tickets for purchases of mugs, food and drinks.
Chuckanut wants everyone to enjoy their Oktoberfest with only a $1 per person entry fee with kids under 10 years free. Chuckanut’s famous wurst will all be available for purchase along with Ralph’s pretzels and pickled eggs. For the beer drinker Chuckanut will be offering its award winning German style Fest Bier 2018, along with other delicious European style ales and lager beers. There will be ample repeats of the “Chicken Dance” for all those dancers out there. A costume contest for all in their leiderhausen and dirndals as well as a yodeling contest for the adventurous (or silly) will be held. Plus the ever popular Liter Holding contest where the winning contestant has to hold out a full liter of liquid with a straight arm the longest to win, not as easy as you think.
Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen’s regular menu will be suspended for the day so there’s plenty of room to sit and enjoy all the Oktoberfest celebrations and activities. The restaurant will resume its regular menu and hours on Sunday, September 9 at 9:30 am for Brunch. Spread the word and bring your family and friends to the Chuckanut Oktoberfest on Saturday September 8 and celebrate all that’s fall.
