This year’s edition of Oktoberfest will once again have all the components for a great time: a vast selection of Bavarian-inspired cuisine from local restaurants, 65 different beers to try (14 brewed by Beau’s and Halcyon), an activities area with keg toss, sausage eating, and other games, a Kinderfest area for kids, and a Beau’s themed midway with prizes. The beer-curious can sign up for “School of Bock”classes to learn more about pairing food with beer, brewing, and all things craft beer.
Vancouver’s indie rock supergroup The New Pornographers will be headlining the mainstage on Friday September 20, and Juno-award-winning rapper and songwriter Shad will be headlining Saturday September 21. Supporting acts include Jenn Grant, Neon Dreams, Birds of Bellwoods, Caravane, John Jacob Magistery, and What If Elephants. The mainstage will be hosted by Canadianity creators and podcasters Jeremy Taggart and Jonathan Torrens, and will feature daytime entertainment from Canada’s Polka King Walter Ostanek. More than 15 additional bands will entertain on the Black Forest Stage, headlined by two all-female bands: Mobina Galore, and Pale Lips.
