Cannstatter's 138th Volkfest Oktoberfest

Happy Labor Day Weekend! I wanted to let you know about a great weekend festival that is happening now. Cannstatter's Oktoberfest is running September 4th - 6th. The park opens at noon each day.

You will find tons of activities at this festival. Amidst the true German Oktoberfest atmosphere, you will find Crafts, German Beer & Wines, German-American Singing & Dancing, Souvenirs, German Clothing, and more! There is also a candle vendor, Beyond Scents, who makes the best soy, paraffin, and gel candles in pints and quarts. They also sell a large variety of Fall, Halloween, and holiday decorative candles. The Greater Kensington String Band is also scheduled to perform on Saturday!

There will be authentic German foods like Sauerbraten, Heisser Leberkäse, Kartoffel-Salat, Maultaschen, Spätzle, Bratwurst, Frankfurters, Heisser Zwiebelkuchen, Pflaumenkuchen, Zwetschgenkuchen and much more!

The best part of this festival is that there are rides and games for the children! There is also a playground area for the kids.

Admission for the Oktoberfest is $6.00 for one day, $9.00 for a two day pass, and $11.00 for a three day pass. Children under 12 are free.
