Prost! Lift your stein at Big Canoe’s Oktoberfest on Oct. 14

By Kim Cooper

Pull out your Lederhosen and beer steins for the annual Big Canoe Oktoberfest Art & Crafts Show set for Saturday, Oct.14 at the Wildcat Recreation Area. Big Canoe property owners and their guests should plan to arrive early. Gates open at 10 a.m. for guests to discover more than 50 art and crafts vendors.

The Clubhouse at Lake Sconti will provide German staples along with a few American dishes for those less adventurous. Are you looking for der biergarten? The beer wagon will be ready to serve guests at 10 a.m.

Remember, food and beverage vendors utilize a ticket system for purchases. Tickets are sold prior to the event at the Canoe Lodge or Fitness Center that began Monday, Oct. 9. You can also purchase tickets at Oktoberfest under the Ticket Tent. Acquiring tickets early will free up your time and allow for more enjoyment of the day’s activities.

Our local vendors are creative, talented and are eager to meet our Big Canoe guests. Stroll through vendors and welcome them to Big Canoe. You will see familiar faces that have been present at Big Canoe’s Oktoberfest for several years as well as new folks attending the festival for the first time.
