Oktoberfest to be held October 12 and 13

CROSSVILLE — The Crossville Knights of Columbus are preparing for Oktoberfest 2012 high atop the Cumberland Plateau. Reserve the dates of Oct. 12 and 13 for your dining, dancing and listening pleasure, at The Knights of Columbus Activity Park, located at 2892 Highway 70 East in Crossville, Tennessee (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. 12. Tapping the keg will be this year’s Honorary Lady Mayor Ronni Chase and Honorary Lord Mayor Panama Jack, the 102.5 WOW Country “Morning Moo Crew.” Continuous music will then run immediately after the keg tapping through 9:30 p.m. On Saturday, Oct. 13 another day of fun, food, music and excitement begins at 11 a.m. and continues until 9:30 p.m.

Returning again this year for their 13th 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, TN, will provide their specialty of German & Bavarian Music. Performing for their second year at our 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 22 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, advance tickets are $6, and can be purchased at both Cancun Mexican Restaurants, Dylan’s Restaurant, Sears, Best One Tire (Main Street Store) and the Lace Place in Crossville, the Fairfield Glade Community Center in Fairfield and Star Realty in Lake Tansi or by calling 707-7291 or emailing jguzek@citlink.net.
