Break out your lederhosen and raise your stein – Artoberfest is coming back to Downtown Coral Springs on Saturday, October 5! This signature event will feature authentic German fare, entertainment, beer and wine, as well as your favorite Bavarian treats. Artoberfest, now in its third year, is extending its hours to 2 to 10 p.m. and will take place on the City Hall lawn, so plan to make it a full day of German heritage, music and art. This year, a special kids’ area will feature amusements and carnival games, providing fun for the entire family.
In what has become an annual tradition, King Ludwig will ceremoniously “tap” the first keg and officiate the yodeling and steinholding contests. Of the event, King Ludwig says, “Considering Oktoberfest started with festivities surrounding my marriage to the fair Princess Therese more than 175 years ago, it’s only fitting I be invited to participate in this regal affair.”
The Swinging Bavarians will perform traditional songs throughout the evening. Local artists showcase their handcrafted items and hungry festival attendees can look forward to a typical Bavarian menu served by long-time German restaurant, The Ambry. They will be plating up all the favorites, such as bratwurst, potato pancakes and strudel. A variety of Tucher beers and German wines by Republic National Distributing will be available for purchase. Free parking will be available in the City Hall garage. City Hall is located at 9500 West Sample Road. For more details visit CoralSprings.org/artoberfest or call 954-344-1111.
