Triangle Oktoberfest is co-hosted by the Rotary Clubs of Apex Sunrise and Cary MacGregor, and the Town of Cary. Previous events have attracted thousands of participants, and this year’s event is expected to surpass previous attendance records.
The event will start Friday, Sept. 23 at 6:45 p.m. with the traditional Bürgermeister tapping of the first keg, called “O’Zapst is,” which is also what the crowd yells out. The organizers are sparing little expense to make the entire experience as authentically Bavarian as possible.
This year’s Triangle Oktoberfest will feature the following activities:
Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the Triangle Oktoberfest Rotary Foundation, a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
“The whole idea behind our Oktoberfest is to share ‘Gemütlichkeit,’ or warmth, friendliness and good cheer,” said Triangle Oktoberfest Bürgermeister Randy Bossé. “Our region is rich in German culture as well as home to over 75 German-based companies. Great effort has been made to create an authentic Bavarian experience.”
