October can only mean one thing in Savannah

September 27, 2013 by  

Savannah will soon welcome the annual Oktoberfest taking place on the historic River Street.

The event brings a touch of Germany presented in Savannah style, offering traditional food and a variety of beers. Highlights of the event will include wiener dog races, bratwurst tasting, and, of course, oomph-dancing to live music to keep the Oktoberfest moving in style.

Several beverage stations will be available, staffed with food and beverage vendors, while arts and crafts exhibitors will also have display booths throughout the weekend.

Frequently, vendors will use printing services from local printers to prepare supplies needed to promote their businesses in the run-up to this kind of event. Banner printing is a traditional order as the banners are mounted in the vendors’ booths or areas, typically reflecting the name of the company in the booth and what is offered.

Applications are currently being accepted for arts and crafts vendors, and are available on the event website and reflect the requirements. The work must be that of the exhibitor and is not applicable for staff or employees. No mass production items or imports are allowed. Clothing must be submitted for approval. Photographs all items intended for sale must accompany the vendor application.

The event will take place on October 4 from noon until 11:00 pm, October 5 from 10:00 am-11:00 pm, and October 6 from 10:00 am-5:00 pm at the Rousakis Plaza. Admission is free and is open to the general public. A fireworks show is scheduled for the opening night, adding to the family fun of the weekend.
