This September Texans are celebrating Oktoberfest in their own unique way.

No German heritage is required in order to come and enjoy the three-day festival that all begins at Der Spatten Halle on September 21st. The opening of the kegs will signal the start of the festival that will include a Dachshund race, beer barrel rolling and live entertainment. A bicycle race, 5K and other sporting events will also be taking place. Midway rides will also be available for the first time during this annual event.

The festival is family-friendly and there will be plenty of food and activities for everyone. Vendor applications are still being accepted for general vendors as well as those offering food and drink. The applications are available at the festival website. Events such as these often make use of posters for advertising and promotional products for souvenir takeaways.

Admission is free for children 12 and under if accompanied by a paying adult. Adult admission is $5 for Thursday and $10 on Saturday and Sunday. A three-day pass is $15.
