Oktoberfest in Nevada City

The KARE Crisis Nursery will be holding its fourth annual Oktoberfest in Pioneer Park on Saturday October 7th from 3 to 7 pm. The event will feature pours by ten local breweries, including award winning Ol’Republic. German food plates (bratwurst and sauerbraten) , and delicious desserts will be available. Oompah music will be provided by the Hannebrink Duo band (lederhosen welcome).   They will be followed by the “kick-off-your-shoes-and-dance” music of the Road Test Band. A motorcycle exhibit of German and other antique and classic European motorcycles will also be featured. Any one bringing a foreign motorcycle built before 1970 will be admitted for free. Guests are encouraged to lawn chairs and picnic blankets (no dogs please) .

The proceeds benefit the KARE Crisis Nursery, a local non-profit which provides emergency and respite care as well as supervised visits for families with young children who fall on hard times.
