Oktoberfest kicks off exciting weekend

October 10, 2013 by  

Residents of West Sacramento can celebrate German traditions at the 46th annual Oktoberfest coming up this weekend.

Visitors will enjoy traditional German music, drinks, and food. Live music will be provided by the Gruber Family Band performing traditional German compositions. Rock and roll music will be provided by Aka Live.

Authentic German beer shipped from Munich will be available at the event, and guests aged 21 and older must show ID to purchase alcoholic drinks.

Parking will be available at Sutter School located on the corner of Alhambra Boulevard and J Street.

Admission is $20 for adults, $5 for children ages 6 to 12, and free for children age five and younger. For more information, call (916) 442-7360.
Oktoberfest will be held this Friday and Saturday, October 11 and 12, at Sacramento Turn Verein, 3349 J Street in Sacramento.

As an alternative option on Saturday, a unique tour that combines food and architecture will be held from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm on Saturday, October 12.

This ‘Farm to Fork Architecture Tour’ costs $10 to partake in and will include visits to the Soil Born Farms Amphitheater, the Davis Food Coop, and the Sacramento Water Intake Structure; the last of which was designed by Lionakis and can be found at 200 Jibboom Street in Sacramento.

This is an opportunity to see locations not available to the public. Banner printing is one way to make it easy to mark locations for tours and out of town guests.
