7 Reasons to go to Midtown Oktoberfest!

11:19 AM EDT on September 5, 2018

Prost Maulwürfe!

This weekend, our friends at Fassler Hall are throwing a huge Oktoberfest-themed party in Midtown. Naturally, it's called Midtown Oktoberfest. Apparently other names with OKC in them were already taken.

The FREE – yes, FREE – three-day event will take place on September 7th, 8th and 9th underneath a huge tent at the Midtown Lawn at 10th and Hudson. It will have all the stuff you look for in Oktoberfest, like German cuisine, giant liters of Oktoberfest beers, stein-holding and yodeling contests (hosted by us), live German music, intoxicated people, hot girls in beer maiden outfits, etc.

Because we never turn down the opportunity to party, write a list or make a client happy, we thought it would be fun to list seven reasons you should go to Midtown Oktoberfest!

1. German Food

Ready for a sausage party? Fassler Hall is building a full-sized outdoor kitchen and serving Bavarian faves – including house-made bratwurst & sausage, schnitzel and pretzels. They'll also have turkeys legs, duck fat fries and other Fassler Hall menu items like duck-fat fries. They'll make you go quack!

-

2. Lots and lots and lots and lots of beer

Midtown Oktoberfest will have over 30+ beers on tap, including German import, American craft and other Oktoberfest classics. They may even having easy to drink brews like Miller & Coors. And be sure to drink them in a limited edition commemorative stein (while supplies last).

-

3. Fun and Games

From Corn Hole and Giant Jenga with friends, to Stein hoisting, yodeling and "best dressed" competitions for prizes, Midtown Oktoberfest will have a slew of games and activities to keep you entertained between beers and bratwursts.

-

4. Great View

Rain or shine, Midtown Oktoberfest will be taking place at the Midtown Lawn – something that we made up but sounds pretty good – and across the street Fassler Hall. Whether you're outside the tent in the beer garten, or way up high on Fassler's rooftop patio, the view is better than anything you'll find in Choctaw or Tulsa.

-

5. Football

Fassler Hall knows where college football ranks on any good Oklahoman's hierarchy of needs. As a result, they're renting one of those huge trucks to air both the OU and OSU football games. Now you don't have as good of an excuse to bail on your friends.

6. German Music

Practicing your polka moves? Ready to do a little chicken dance? Midtown Oktoberfest will feature live German acts like the Bohemian Knights, Das Ist Lustig. Midas 13 and The Polkatimers. We also tried to book Ramstein by they told us Du Hast! Either way, be sure to give a Like and Follow to the Midtown Oktoberfest Facebook page for the schedule and latest info.

7. Doggies! 

Life is better with dogs, beer and fresh air! Bring your leashed pooch to party under the gigantic tent with our friends at Central Oklahoma Humane Society, who will receive a portion of event proceeds. If you have a mullet, you're also allowed to bring a ferret.
