Oktoberfest to be held Oct. 11, 12

CROSSVILLE — The Crossville Knights of Columbus are preparing for Oktoberfest 2013 high atop the Cumberland Plateau. Reserve the dates of Oct. 11 and 12 for your dining, dancing and listening pleasure at The Knights of Columbus Activity Park, 2892 Hwy. 70 East in Crossville, (Exit 322 off I-40, south to Hwy. 70, then 1/3 mile east).

The festivities will kick off with the traditional tapping of the keg at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 11. Continuous music will then run immediately after the keg tapping through 9:30 p.m. On Saturday, Oct. 12, another day of fun, food, music and excitement will begin at 11 a.m. and continue until 9:30 p.m.

Returning again this year for their 14th year is the ever popular group, the Rheingold Band from Louisville, KY. This group of five men has performed at fests all over the Midwest in their traditional lederhosen. Look for them, with their upbeat tempo, to get the crowd involved both young and old. The Bavarian Echo, a husband and wife band from Rutledge, will provide their specialty of German and Bavarian music. Performing for their third year at Oktoberfest will be the Frank Moravcik Band from Cleveland, OH. The band plays a wide variety of music featuring their own brand of “Cleveland style” polka music.

All day and evening long, you will be able to enjoy, once again, the authentic German food that you have come to expect at the Oktoberfest. Enjoy bratwurst, knackwurst, wiesswurst, pork schnitzel and kasseler rippchen (smoked pork chop), along with sauerkraut, red cabbage and cinnamon apples. For dessert, German chocolate cake and cheesecake are available. Imported and domestic beverages are also available.

The Knights of Columbus started the Oktoberfest in Crossville 23 years ago, and it has become a yearly event that is anxiously awaited by many throughout Middle and East Tennessee. Oktoberfest in Crossville has been rated by many as the most authentic Oktoberfest they have attended.

So if you want to dance to the best German bands in the country, eat the best German food in the land or just come out and watch the festivities, Oktoberfest in Crossville is the place to be rain or shine. All activities are under cover.

Admission tickets are $7.50 at the gate.

  • fair park.jpg Heritage demonstrators welcome

    Most of Americans today never stop to think how different our lives would have been several hundred years ago. How many times a day do we wash our hands, and do we ever realize when we take those hot showers and lather up, the long all-day process our ancestors had to go through just to make a bar of soap? Not to mention packing water to the house and heating it up over a wood fire just to have a bath and wash clothes. Times are changing faster than ever.
