Oktoberfest at Soulard Market returns October 11-12, celebrating both the city’s and neighborhood’s German heritage through two days of food, drink, live music and entertainment. 2019 will feature an open-air plaza, wine garden, seven bands (including Grammy award-winning Brave Combo and fan-favorite Deutschmeiser Brass Band), axe throwing activities, stein holding competitions (hosted by We Are Live!), and the return of “Oktubafest” with St. Louis Low Brass Collective.
The annual event is family-friendly, and entry is FREE. Those ages 21 and over can further enhance their experience by purchasing a VIP Bier Hall ticket for $20, which includes access to the Bier Hall tent (with additional seating and bathrooms), tent-exclusive entertainment, unique food items, premium German beer selections, and a one-liter commemorative Oktoberfest at Soulard Market stein.
Event hours are Friday, Oct 11 (4pm-11pm) and Saturday, Oct 12 (11am-10pm).
