The legendary Coral Gables Oktoberfest will continue a 16-year tradition when it takes place Oct. 1-10 on the beautiful Bierhaus Plaza in front of Fritz & Franz Bierhaus at 60 Merrick Way in downtown Coral Gables.
The festival has become one of Miami’s most anticipated annual neighborhood celebrations and typically attracts as many as 15,000 guests during a two-weekend span.
Performers have included Austrian and German celebrated musicians like Die Edelseer, Gluatfunkn, Gifti und die Wahsinns Fuenf, Pfundskerle, Goldberg Spatzen, Luftsprung, Alpenland Express, Alpenland Gaudi, Kaitersberg Echo, Bavaria Krainer, Laterndl Trio and Sepp Hias. Featured artists for the 2010 Oktoberfest include The Group AlpenPower from Weiz in the Steiermark, and Alpenland Gaudi from Steyer in Upper Austria.
As every year in the past, the Oktoberfest will raise money for a charity. This year organizers have chosen CHARLEE Homes for Children again to be the beneficiary from the sale of raffle tickets. Raffle tickets are sold for $5 and you can win a cruise for two.
Admission to the Oktoberfest is, as for the past 15 years, free to the public.
The Hyatt Regency Hotel Coral Gables, a loyal sponsor of this event for the past seven years, again will offer a special rate during Oktoberfest 2010.
