Plan to come to the Old Dominion Building at the Richmond Raceway Complex to party!
The popular local Brass band ACCA Sauerkrauts, will greet you when the doors open, and get you into the Bavarian Mood. During their breaks the Hirschjäger Bavarian Dancers will present their great talent. Another highlight will be the March-in Parade, featuring the members of the two German clubs which have organized this event since 1969, the Deutscher Sport Club and the Gesangverein Virginia. Representatives of all German clubs of Central Virginia that are present will also participate in the parade.
The highlight on Friday evening will be the crowning of the queen. After that our feature band, Die Lustigen Alm Dudler wll play the German Oktoberfest favorites and lots of great music to dance to.
The program is almost the same on Saturday, however we will open at 3:40 PM. During the afternoon we will feature a March-in Parade for all our little Oktoberfest participants. The children will love it.
After you had enough German beer to build up your strength, you will be invited to participate in the ever-popular Beer Stein Hoisting Contest, which will be held for men and for women on both evenings. The winners will receive a great prize!
