This 11th annual event in the garden of the Civic Center kicks off with authentic live German music provided by the Boise Valley Edelweiss Band. The ensemble has served the Treasure Valley for over 35 years, specializing in nostalgic Beer Garden Music. Check out our new garden tent, where you can rescue a few beers that have been trapped in their bottles. Don’t forget to visit and support the vendors at the event. Vendors on site are Scentsy, Color Street, Lularoe, Pure Romance and more.
Distinct Oktoberfest beers like Paulaner and Hacker Pshorr will be on tap. Paulaner is a rich malt beer and Hacker Pshorr is lighter than many of the American craft beer’s versions, less hoppy - which makes it delicious and refreshing. What makes beer even better? When it is accompanied by Bavarian foods such as brats, slaw, cheese soup, pretzels and strudel. So come on out, eat, drink and bring some friends because after all, friends don’t let friends go thirsty.
