Dust off the lederhosen and dirndls because the Chuckanut Oktoberfest celebration is happening at South Nut and P. Nut on Saturday September 24, 2022 from 12pm to close. This family friendly fall celebration includes lots of beer, food, games and contests. Get your arm muscles in shape for the liter holding and hammerschlagen contests. If you aren’t familiar with hammerschlagen it’s a game of skill and strength. Make sure to dress up in your favorite Bavarian gear to enter the costume contest. Contests will happen throughout the day with no early sign ups needed.
Traditionally Oktoberfest happens the last couple of weeks in September to capitalize on the better September weather as opposed to the month of October when it historically began in Germany. Activities are planned for the beer gardens at South Nut in Burlington and P. Nut in Portland if the weather holds. Hammerschlagen and costume contests will only happen at South Nut but there will be plenty to do at P. Nut also. Beer Garden games like cornhole will be out and at the ready. GrisGris Kitchen will be on hand in Portland to dish up food for the hungry while Captain’s Cod food truck will be on site in Burlington at South Nut. Captain’s Cod has been making WAVES since bursting onto the scene with their 100% sustainably caught wild Alaskan Cod. Either way there will be plenty to eat, and did we mention the beer? You are guaranteed there will be plenty of Chuckanut’s Fest Bier on hand to drink in liter mugs, just like in Germany. Plus Chuckanut’s other great German beers like Kolsch, Dunkel Lager, Helles Lager, Vienna Lager and the rich Maibock. Chuckanut Oktoberfest is sure to be a very fun gathering for everyone!
