Southwest Florida’s biggest party of the year – the 34th Annual Cape Coral Oktoberfest – is scheduled for Oct. 18 – 20 and Oct. 25 – 27.
The German American Social Club has been excitedly preparing for the event for fun, great food, German beer, live music, laughter and dancing – from polka to, Fliegerlied, to the Bob to the Chicken Dance. The big tent is being erected, the banners are being hung, the long tables are being prepared, the beer trucks are being set up and food preparations are underway. You don’t want to miss it this year, with more bands than ever before, more German music and more German food and beer, and fun for the entire family.
This year’s dates are Oct. 18, 19, 20, 25, 26 and 27 – the last two full weekends of the month. Everyone is invited to come out for some Gaudi and Gemütlichkeit – Gaudi is just leg-slapping, joyous fun, while Gemütlichkeit expresses a feeling of being welcome and a part of something special. Come sit with friends, dance under the big tent or relax under the bright umbrellas in the Bavarian Gardens. The opening hours are on both Fridays from 4 p.m. to midnight, Saturdays noon until midnight and Sundays from noon until 9 p.m.
Flying in directly from Germany this year are not one, but three groups, the big band – the Zimmerer Kapelle, the Flotten Oberkrainer, who have appeared numerous times on Traumschiff – Germany’s equivalent to the Love Boat – and the Andorfer Plattler, from the Passau area. Also featured this year is Festhaus Musig, a duo with Hungarian routes and the Hot Buttered Nuggets, offering jazz and swing style music. Organizers are excited to present the local favorites The Pitbull of Blues Band and Deb and the Dynamics. Plus, the club’s very own Hafenkapelle will perform There will be non-stop music in the tent, the gardens and inside in the Edelweiss Hall, something for every ear and foot-tapping enjoyment.
You will want to meet our Ms. Oktoberfest 2019, the very lovely Ashley Jones.
Enjoy the German food and international delicacies you’ve come to love at Oktoberfest, plus a few new additions, at the various kitchens and booths. Or, enjoy a sit-down dinner in the Von Steuben Hall.
The amazing thing about this huge event of the year – every bit of it, from start to finish, is put together by GASC members, each one of them volunteering their time and effort to create the region’s most successful event you’ve come to love.
Admission is $5 in advance or $6 at the door. Children under 12 are admitted free. Parking is free, and the festival is a rain or shine event. For more fest details, visit online at www.capecoraloktoberfest.com
