Buffalo Celebrates Oktoberfest This Weekend

Buffalo's Sixth Annual Oktoberfest celebration will be this Saturday, featuring food, live music, playhouses for the kids, and of course, beer.

Upwards of 40 different home-made beers will be entered by their makers for the Home Brew Contest in eight distinct styles: Porter, Wheat, Pale Ale, Amber, Lager, India Pale Ale (IPA), Stout, and Pilsner.

Angela Fox, Director of the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce, who is putting on the event, tells us about the prizes this year for the winners, and some new happenings for the celebration.

Also new this year is a presentation of “Grimm's Fairy Tales,” as read and interpreted by Gordie Grant. Kids of all ages can enjoy the stories in the Clear Creek Brewery.

Food and merchandise vendors will be there, live music in the street by the Terry Waugh Band from 1 to 5 in the afternoon, inflatable bouncy houses for the kids to enjoy in Crazy Woman Square, and face-painting as well.

The Tour De Lure costumed bicycle ride will be happening at 3 o'clock. Participants can sign up at the Sports Lure to register for various prizes to be given away.

Buffalo's Oktoberfest will be happening Saturday from noon until 6 that evening and is open to all ages, but those sampling beers must be over 21.

Tickets for the event are $15 if purchased at the chamber of commerce Friday before 5pm, or $20 at the gate on Saturday.
