FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29TH THROUGH SUNDAY, OCTOBER 8TH
This is our third year celebrating Oktoberfest and we want it to be memorable (again). For two weekends, we will try our best to bring you something that resembles the traditional Munich Oktoberfest feeling on our 60 acre farm estate in Central Pennsylvania. In Germany, Oktoberfest certainly has its indoor component, but it has lots of outdoor components as well and, uniquely, our vineyard and brewery can bring them as well.
While the overall Estate will be open to the public and be decorated for Oktoberfest, we will concentrate most of the Oktoberfest "feeling" inside "the oval" around our "Oktoberfest Tent" for a ticket-only experience - buying "the package" online and in advance will be important.
Of course, we will have music, both Germanic and American. It will be in the Oktoberfest Tent for those who buy the Oktoberfest ticket.
Of course, we will have wine, including that favored German wine, Riesling! But, we will also have some other wineries providing other German Style wines as well, including Allegro Winery.
"GERMAN" RAZZLEBERRY WINE SLUSHY!
Of course, we will have a special Oktoberfest wine slushy available only for our two Oktoberfest weekends. This "Germanic" treat we hope will curl your toes - blueberry, cranberry, raspberry, blackberry, strawberry, and if Diane let's Trevor pick them, even our home grown elderberries!
TICKETS FOR THE OKTOBERFEST PACKAGE
As stated above, access to the "Oval" and Oktoberfest Tent is a ticketed event. Online ticketing will stop on the 22nd of September, or if our pre-event ticket allocation is used up, so order now! We will also sell the package "at the door" for $30.
If materials (not wine or beer) run out, Spring Gate has the option to substitute them, or not, based on availabilities.
Tickets for the Oktoberfest Package for September 29th through October 1st are available here.
Tickets for the Oktoberfest Package for October 6th through October 8th are available here.
We will do some traditional German fun things, including barrel rolling and pretzel necklace making. Stay tuned for the list on Facebook.
THE OKTOBERFEST TENT
We have decided this is the year of the tent, and on our famous oval we'll deploy 5,000 square foot of tent'age for Germania fun. This is where the music will be for both weekends. It will be the center of the ticketed action.
THE OKTOBERFEST TICKET/PACKAGE
To get your Oktoberfest on, you need to get in the ring (or Oval) where the big Oktoberfest Tent will be set up, and the "fixins" for our Oktoberfest Celebration. We'll be selling a $22 Oktoberfest Package in advance of Oktoberfest that includes:
