OKTOBERFEST AT SUGAR MOUNTAIN RESORT
Sugar Mountain Ski Resort, North Carolina. Monday, Tuesday, September 1, 2015 – Sugar Mountain Resort’s 25th annual Oktoberfest will be held October 10th & 11th. Take in the beautiful fall foliage, cool, comfortable mountain temperatures, and a weekend full of Oktoberfest activities from 10 am until 5 pm each day. Be sure to bring the kids and the grandparents because the festival is for the whole family. Admission, parking and shuttle service are free. Rain, shine or snow the festival will go on!
Bavarian cuisine including bratwurst, knockwurst, sauerkraut, strudel and pretzels will be available starting at 11:00am both Saturday & Sunday. To help wash it down an ample supply of authentic Bavarian Spaten beer will generously flow each day until 5:00pm. Spaten Oktoberfest beer, created in 1872 and brewed in Munich, Germany, is the world’s first Oktoberfest beer. If Bavarian cuisine isn’t your preference American hot dogs, hamburgers, soda, and other festive foods will be on hand.
Artisans, crafts-people and food vendors will open their booths at 10:00 am each day. Pottery and ceramics to jewelry, doggie items and fun food will cover the back lawn for your browsing or shopping pleasure.
A children’s activity area is located in the Ski School Play Yard. The children’s area includes bounce and play stations, hay rides, and a chance to meet Sugar Bear and Sweetie Bear. Face painting, cotton candy, popcorn and drinks will also be available in the children’s activity area.
An Oktoberfest isn’t complete without the sounds of an Oom Pah Band. Yodeling, accordions, Alpenhorns and dancing will entertain from noon until 4:00pm both Saturday & Sunday. The fifteen piece Harbour Towne Fest Band guarantees to bring the sounds, dances and enthusiasm of Bavaria to Sugar Mountain.
There’s nothing more American than listening to a local school band. The Valle Crucis Middle School band will be performing on Saturday, October 10th at 2:00 pm.
Enjoy the area’s fall foliage while riding the Green Chairlift and the Oma’s Meadow Chairlift to the top of Oma’s Meadow Slope.
