Talk Foodie to Me: Nashville Oktoberfest

Nashville’s Oldest Festival and Biggest Party

Hey Hustler readers! It’s Allison and I am back to tell you about the next can’t miss food event happening in Nashville.

Mark your calendars for the thirty-eighth annual Nashville Oktoberfest, happening Oct. 5-8 in Germantown. The festival, which has been extended this year to four days, pays homage to the historic Germantown as being Nashville’s first suburb. Stop by to check out the second largest Oktoberfest in America and say “Prost!” to the beginning of the fall season.

You can explore the endless craft beers and tasty morsels with free admission, or you can upgrade to a VIP pass for $115 to get your hands on unlimited free food, beer and commemorative swag. Whether you find yourself enjoying a bratwurst while listening to traditional German music, or competing to be named Beer Slide Champion, you are guaranteed to have a good time at Oktoberfest and it is a great opportunity to get out and enjoy Nashville. There’s even ways that you can give back to the community by attending the festival. Sign up for the 5K Bier Run Oct. 7 and see 100 percent of the proceeds go towards the Historic Germantown Neighborhood Organization so that we can continue to enjoy amazing events like this!
