Oktoberfest (BMO centre)

Dirndl and Lederhosen are encouraged!! 

Starts at 3pm so we'll meet outside at 2:45 for those who want to chill and chat before hand. Those who get there later I'll have my phone on me during the eve for anyone to msg, (no calls as it will be busy and probably loud with the band). [masked]

Get your ticket from the Oktoberfest website <<<HERE>>>

More info below;

    Thanks for a great meetup everyone -
    My friend who attended left a patchwork leather coat on a chair at Oktoberfest (it has a security tag under the left sleeve), if any of you happened to pick it up or saw it, please let me know. -And thanks to Amy for organizing yesterday, it was great - Cheers Cherie

    Carla, just noticed that you are not "hosting" the event and Cindy is rather taking the initiative...which is great. Any idea where we would meet for those who show up at 3 p.m.? Please let us know what you ladies have in mind. Cheers! Andres

    Well if it's just to greet those showing at 3 and clarifying where we are sitting. Sure. But not if it means having to mann my phone all night. Especially after a few beers, I can't see that happening.

    September 20, 2013

    • Carla

      No problem. I may have to step down though, and whether or not it will be hosted I'm not sure. Under the circumstances I can't stay in a beer house all night now lol. So, I'll see by the middle of next week what happens regarding the event going ahead.

      September 20, 2013

    Well. If we done have a taker by then I'm sure I can be there for 2:45 and hold a sign. :)

    September 17, 2013

    • Carla

      Are you happy for me to put you as the host cindy? Atleast for the first while?

      September 20, 2013

  • Carla

    Hey All! So, I recently found out that I'm expecting! So, as you can imagine, I'm not drinking. Plus I'm going through the daily all day sickness stage (it's never just in the morning LOL), so, if anyone of you lovely people would like to offer to host from the suggested meetup time of 2.45 then that would be great. Because I will only now be able to go for a shorter time. If nobody is up for hosting then I will make the start time later of around 6 or 7. I'll see what response there is. Also, if its easier and someone is up for hosting the whole thing then feel free! To be honest we just need a sign and everybody gets together, no hosting is really needed. Once everyone is together all is good. I will more than likely come from around 6/7 for a couple of hours as I'd still like to meet everyone. I also have 2 spare tickets if anyone still needs to buy. They're the one's with 3 beers each ticket and they're $25 each.

    Sorry about the change!

    Carla :)

    September 17, 2013

    • Brad

      I'll grab 1 of those tickets if you still have them.

  • Chrystal Ashley M.

    did you guys just get a general ticket for this festival? and then how does it work you purchase beer tickets when you get there?

    August 29, 2013

    • Carla

      I think he tickets with beer are not on sale any more, so you'll get a regular ticket now and buy your beer on the night. Check the link above :)

      August 30, 2013

  • Chrystal Ashley M.

    I have never been before, I believe I will purchase a ticket this weekend and am looking forward to meeting new people too! I have recently moved back after being away for 6 1/2 years and seems as though all my friends are "busy" with their lives and families. It is making a lonely welcoming back so I thought I would try this meetup.com thing haha!
