Shrewsbury Street is celebrating the annual October tradition of Oktoberfest this weekend. It makes brilliant sense to celebrate a beer and food festival on the hottest street for restaurants and taverns in Worcester. They have actually made a catchy theme of it with the date which is 10-10-10. There will be 10 venues participating with 10 bands on the 10th of October in 2010.
This is the first time Shrewsbury Street is officially honoring Oktoberfest which is based on the biggest German festival that revolves around beer and German food. Check out the official website for the event to get a list of participating locations and bands. Festivities take place from 5pm – 10pm this Sunday before Columbus Day.
Worcester will continue with it’s Oktoberfest celebration with WormTown Brewery and Union Station hosting their own Oktoberfest event on Saturday October 16th from 6-11pm. This event actually requires tickets that cost only $9.99 with all beer and food items costing an additional $5 per item. We have written about the WormTown Brewery before since it is a recent brewery addition here in Central Massachusetts.
They also will be having a menu of German favorites that tie in with the Oktoberfest theme:
The menu includes – hamburgers, giant soft pretzels, roasted bratwurst, German BBQ in a cup (layered baked navy beans, homemade slaw and porter glazed pulled pork pork), spaetzle, chicken schnitzel & potato latkes.
There will also be music acts/bands from Worcester, Fitchburg and New England performing. The acts include The Franks, Soulstice, Jack Babineau and Chris Reddy. Buy your tickets soon since having a this event at Union Station is sure to pull plenty of people. You can visit the WormTown Brewery website for even more info.
Enjoy Oktoberfest in Worcester.
