Oktoberfest and Family Event at Cole Park Commons

Morale, Welfare and RecreationFort Campbell, KY – Oktoberfest is a two-week festival held each year in Munich, Germany and has been held annually since 1810. It’s the world’s largest fair with more than 6 million people attending and has inspired hundreds of large and small Oktoberfest celebrations throughout the country.

This year, Fort Campbell will be joining the celebrations with our own Oktoberfest. On October 8th, from 12:00noon until 6:00pm, come out to Cole Park Commons and join in the fun.

We’re having a German festival complete with polka music, fun games, dancing, German food and German beer. Wear your lederhosen, dirndls and hats or come as you are because, in true German festival tradition, we’ll be doing the Chicken Dance for food, drink and souvenirs.

Our menu of authentic German food will include favorites such as; Jager Schnitzel, Paprika Schnitzel, Rahm Schnitzel, Brat Wurst, Weiss Wurst, Knack Wurst, Sauerkraut, Rotkohl (red cabbage), Kartoffelsalat (potato salad), and Kartoffelpuffer (potato pancake).  For your sweet tooth, we’ll have Black Forest Cake, Apfelstrudel (apple strudel), Streuselkuchen (crumb cake).

Oktoberfest and Family Event at Cole Park CommonsFor some, Oktoberfest is all about the beer.  You’ll have a hard time choosing which of the many varieties of German beer to try first. Bretzeln (pretzels) will be available to clean your palate between the flavors of German beer.

During our Oktoberfest, there will be something to be enjoyed by all ages. From 12:00noon until 4:00pm, we’ll have face painters, balloon twisters, crafts, pumpkin decorating and inflatables for the children to enjoy.

The activities, crafts and inflatables will be free and the food and beverages will be available to purchase.
