On Saturday, October 21st, from 3-6pm, the inaugural Oxtoberfest Beer Fest will take place at the Covington Trailhead. Tickets are $30 ahead of time and can be purchased online at www.oxtoberfest.org, or at the door if it does not sell out first, for $35. Tickets include sampling cup, local and national brewery samples, live music and other traditional beer fest activities! All proceeds benefit the Boys & Girls Club- Covington Unit.
Cody Ludwig, event coordinator says the event started with she and a group of friends “wanting to help out the local Boys & Girls Club unit after going to their annual gala and falling in love with the organization. We always knew it was good for the community but the children that they mentor and give a place to go after school and during the summer really does make a huge difference in these kids’ lives and gives them a future that they may not otherwise have. It’s such an important cause that needs more funding and attention.”
A play on the “ox-lots” around town and the unofficial Covington mascot, the oxen, mixed with the whimsy of an Oktoberfest type event in downtown Covington, the event was born! Food will be available for purchase and of course lots of beer to be sampled. Patrons are welcome to dress up in traditional German garb or just come out and enjoy the beautiful fall weather.
Sponsorships are still available and can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
