Don’t let the name fool you, one of the top things to do in Stowe this fall is actually happening in September!
Celebrate the return of autumn in quintessential Bavarian tradition during the 10th Annual Von Trapp Brewing Oktoberfest! In English, we say ‘cheers’! At Oktoberfest, get ready to hear and toast with a hearty ‘prost’!
This year’s Stowe Oktoberfest will be once again celebrated at the von Trapp Brewing Bierhall & Restaurant on Saturday, September 21. Yet don’t let the hoppy nature of the name fool you – this Stowe, Vermont Oktoberfest, like many others across the globe, is about more than just raising a beer stein full of your choice of brew (even though there will be quite a lot of ‘prost-ing’ throughout the afternoon). The day will feature a variety of games and activities for the whole family and has become one of the events that many look forward to during the fall in Stowe. Live music will be provided by the local German outfit, Inseldudler, whose polkas and waltzes will keep your ears humming as your taste buds enjoy the variety of delicious Austrian fare. Entrance to the outdoor tented event is free with the festivities running from 11 AM to 7 PM. Parking will be available at the Trapp Family Lodge with complimentary shuttle service to and from the event.
If you are planning on rolling out the barrel and joining Stowe in the fall for this event, be sure to call The Green Mountain Inn your Oktoberfest headquarters! Our Old-World charm may skew more toward the New England approach, but our rustic charm still rings with true traditional reverence. And after a full day of fun at the Bierhall, retreat to the comfort and convenience of our Downtown Stowe accommodations that are located less than five miles away. Prost!
