Know where to go!
Craft Beer Festival
Oct 17 2009 - Oct 18 2009
24th Street Park
The Chicken Dance and Polka are the latest dance crazes at the Oktober Brewfest, when Munich’s Oktoberfest relocates to the Virginia Beach oceanfront for two days of fun and frolic! Everyone loves great German food, and it’s in no short supply as the 24th Street Park transforms into a German bier garden right before your eyes. Wine and beer, pretzels, and pizza are served alongside knockwurst, bratwurst, and sausage and peppers. Eating and drinking are on tap in a seaside park festooned with colorful flags, banners, and balloons representing the colors of Germany and Bavaria.
Entertainment includes a German oompa band, relay games, and the wildly-popular Dachshund beauty pageant. Dozens of Dachshunds enter the beauty pageant on Saturday, where contestants compete in crazy costumes and display their talents. 10 finalists are chosen to return on Sunday to vie for the top three trophies. Late Saturday afternoon, Oktoberfest transitions into “ROCKtoberfest,” with a rock band and fun lasting into the evening. A dunk tank is set up for “Dunk a Hunk” and “Drench a Wench,” with proceeds going to a local charity.
