Fans of the band Plants and Animals, songwriter/singer Ron Hawkins, and BC’s Carolyn Mark will need to hurry to get tickets to Beau’s Oktoberfest on Saturday, Sept 29. Tickets for the Saturday for the three-day festival are now 75% sold, making a total sell out for Saturday a likely scenario. Oktoberfest fans should still be able to get tickets to Friday (a later start at 4 pm to 11 pm), and Sunday (11-6) once Saturday tickets are gone, either online or at the gate.
Oktoberfest is the signature fundraising event for Beau’s All Natural Brewery, and takes place at the Fairgrounds in Vankleek Hill, Ont. Beau’s Oktoberfest is a three-day Bavarian-themed celebration of craft beer, local food and independent musicians. This year’s fundraising benefits local charities Operation Come Home, JustFood, and the Vankleek Hill Agricultural Society. To help further boost the Oktoberfest funds raised this year, Beau’s has enlisted local sponsors Desjardins Caisse Populaire Nouvel-Horizon, Harden Group, and Theoret Martel Proudfoot Insurance Brokers Ltd.
Single-day passes for Oktoberfest 2012 are $18 including GST, or one can save $9 on daily admission by purchasing a 3-day pass for $45. Round trip bus transportation from Ottawa can be added to any daily ticket for an additional $15. Tickets are available online at www.beaus.ca.
