Oktoberfest! Munich’s 16-day festival celebrating the Autumn and all things beer. Grab your Bavarian garb, crazy hats, pretzel necklaces, and brush up on your Ein Prosit – because we’re celebrating it here at HooDoo, just like they do in Germany.
From September 16 to September 30, get whisked away to Bavaria and enjoy a fun array of activities and food at Fairbanks’ local brewery. Get your dirndls and lederhosen ready…here’s what is planned —->
// OKTOBERFEST LAGER //
For the 5th year in a row, we will kick off Oktoberfest just like the Germans do: at noon on Saturday September 16, we will tap a cask of German-style Oktoberfest Lager with Fairbanks North Star Borough Mayor Kassel.
// LOCAL ART //
This year the amazing Klara Maisch was commissioned for the 2017 Oktoberfest artwork. Her hand-drawn moose skull is surrounded by beer goodness and beautiful Fairbanks fall detail. The piece will be featured on limited edition t-shirts and posters beginning September 16th at 11am. Both will be online the following week. There will also be a very limited edition print on wood available.
