One of my favorite fall activities!
Sunday, there is no charge for the main events in the Festhalle.
Beer, brats, bands and Lederhosen - the Helen Oktoberfest has them all. Join the longest running Oktoberfest in the United States.
Every year the Helen Festhalle houses the event where German-style bands from around the country and around the world play. There is also live music outside near the shops and eateries with dancing.
I always have lunch at Hofer's, but there are many eateries to choose from! :-)
The entire Castle Inn Hotel is reserved just for GOinG members and guest! That's right, once again we have the hotel to ourselves!
Each room is $99 and can be shared how you choose. Payment is not needed until you arrive. Space is limited.
Here, there is a "party room" with a full kitchen, living room and dining area where we can gather for "happy hour" before heading to the festhall or the outdoor live music for dancing. Also, those staying over can join us for a brunch buffet on Monday morning as I plan on using that kitchen to make pancakes, bacon, fresh fruit, and such before we all head out after our late check out.
If not staying at the Castle Inn, there are many other options out there. Just don't wait too late to book it as October is the busy month for Helen hotels . . .
Regardless of staying over or just joining for the day, we can meet up at the visitors center (free parking) or at the Castle Inn at 11:30, then grab lunch together before exploring and enjoying . . .
