NXNW’s two-day Oktoberfest celebration is more than just a party. It is also a chance for revelers to learn about and raise funds for four local nonprofits: Saturday, the folks from Don't Fear the Finger will be alongside Oncology Massage Alliance, and on Sunday, the Austin Humane Society and Central Texas Dachshund Rescue will partake in the dog costume contests. All four will benefit from the suggested $2 entry donation.
Beer & Brats:
During the weekend festival, Chef George Powell will prepare German
bratwurst, homemade sauerkraut, fresh red cabbage, pretzels, and Bavarian
cobblers. NXNW also will brew onsite a special Oktoberfest beer to
complement the feast.
Live music from high-energy polka band Terry Cavanagh and the Alpine
Express, along with Oma and the Oompahs and The TubaMeisters bring
the authenticity of Oktoberfest to Austin.
Events for All Ages:
There will be fun activities for the whole family. Festivities include: bounce houses, kids games, face painting, Nate the Great Balloon Artist, a bratwurst eating contest will take place Saturday evening, and a wiener dog costume contest and an all-breed dog costume contest will also be held Sunday afternoon with first place and runner up prizes from Lofty Dog.
