Did Arizona miss live events? If the crowds at our Gilbert Oktoberfest was any indication, then the answer is a very strong YES! On October 23, 2021, over <insert number> gathered at Gilbert Regional Park for an afternoon of lederhosen, dirndls, bratwurst and steins full of local beer.
Guests celebrated German culture by participating in Oktoberfest-themed fun including stein holding competitions, a bratwurst eating competition and traditional polka music. However, the true highlight of the event was the appearance from the ”Queen of Oktoberfest” and her band, the Oktoberlesque! Crowds cheered her on and as she entertained the crowd until the sun went down!
The Oktoberfest proudly supported local and featured a large craft beer selection provided by best-loved Gilbert breweries such as OHOSO Brewery & Distillery, Uncle Bears Brewery, 12 West Brewing Company, Four Silos Brewery and Desert Monks Brewing Company. The day also offered festive fun for all ages and provided family fun that included oversized games and a kids’ zone.
With the exciting turnout, it allowed us to donate <insert amount> to Greater Cause Foundation who offers critical funding to a variety of Arizona causes including the Children’s Cancer Dream Network, Military Assistance Mission, 100 Club of Arizona, Salt River Wild Horse Management Group, Matthew’s Crossing Food Bank and Heidi’s Village.
