"Ziggy Zaggy, Ziggy Zaggy,
Oi Oi Oi!"

On Saturday, October 13th, Phoenixville will host its Inaugural Oktoberfest at the Kimberton Fair Grounds courtesy of the Phoenixville Chamber, the Phoenixville Library, Bistro on Bridge & Sly Fox Brewing Company. There will be activies for all ages to enjoy, but most of all, plenty of Oompah Music, Bavarian Pretzels and tasty Oktoberfest style beer!

One of the great things about this Festival is the location. Hosting an event of this magnitute needs a lot of space, and the Kimberton Fair Grounds are perfect for just that! If you've been to the Kimberton Fair, then you know there's a wide open area to launch an authentic Oktoberfest experience. And with the local breweries bringing their Germanfest styles, local food vendors cooking up their tasty menu items, activies for the whole family and music throughout the day, we're going to need all the room we can get!

With that being said, join us as we celebrate one of the most cherished traditions in our own backyard and kick of the Inaugural Phoenixville Oktoberfest Saturday, October 13th. Be prepared to chant with a Stein in hand, "Ziggy Zaggy, Ziggy Zaggy, Oi Oi Oi!"
