Crossbuck Brewing will take over the parking lot behind the historic train depot to hold their first Oktoberfest celebration. The all-ages party features food, drinks, live music and games. Walla Walla Steak Company’s mobile kitchen, Angus Prime, will serve seasonal favorites including a pretzel bar and a whole spit-roasted lamb and pig raised by Dan Thiessen and fed with mash from the Crossbuck Brewing process. The seasonal Oktoberfest Ale will be tapped at noon.
Tickets (including entrance, all games, and one beer or pretzel) can be purchased in advance here.
In honor of Hunger Awareness Month, local personalities will take a turn in the dunk tank to benefit the Blue Mountain Action Council food bank’s Backpack Bridge program which provides weekend meals sent home with 500 school kids that have been identified as food insecure. Local winemakers and restaurant owners will take a twenty-minute turn to compete in raising the most money during their time in the hot seat.
