Event date: October 07, 2018
Fayetteville's Historic Downtown Square will be ground-zero on Sunday, October 7, for some of the best craft beers in Arkansas.
Oktoberfest, a family-friendly event held in Fayetteville every fall, features craft beer and live music. The festivities are put on by the Arkansas Brewers Guilde and will take place from 1-7 p.m.
This year’s Oktoberfest will feature craft brews from several Arkansas breweries, including several partners of the Fayetteville Ale Trail. Live music will be performed by Lost John and White Mansion.
Admission is $10, which includes entry along with a commemorative sampling glass, two sampling tokens and access to the beer, art vendors, food trucks, a kid zone and other activities. (Don’t worry, additional sampling tokens will be available for onsite for $3.) Tickets for designated drivers and those under 21 will be available at the gate the day of Oktoberfest.
Participating Ale Trail breweries include: Apple Blossom Brewing Company, Bentonville Brewing Company, Fossil Cove Brewing Co. and New Province Brewing Co.
