Hoist a Beer Stein at Oktoberfest

What: Pull on a pair of lederhosen or grab your dirndl for Sugar Mountain Resort’s Oktoberfest. This two-day event will feature Bavarian food (think bratwurst, knockwurst, sauerkraut and pretzels), along with hay rides and a chance to view the North Carolina High Country’s fall foliage from the resort’s ski lift. Of course there will be plenty of Spaten beer and other adult diversions. And no Oktoberfest would be complete without an oom pah band, and the Harbour Towne Fest Band won’t disappoint. The Avery Smooth Dancers and Mountain Laurel Cloggers (a crew of students from Avery County schools) are also sure to get festival-goers on their feet for a weekend of German-inspired merriment.

Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 8 and 9, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Rain or shine

Sugar Mountain Resort’s Main Lodge, 1009 Sugar Mountain Drive

Cost: Free admission and parking
