Get ready for a weekend of pretzels, beer, and polka! Park Place Lodge’s popular Oktoberfest themed event is back for another year, and it’s better than ever.

An Oktoberfest menu and dinner features like bratwurst, schnitzel, and apple strudel will be available all week long at Park Place, with a wrap-up party happening this Saturday night. The pub has also teamed up with Fernie Brewing Company to create their very own Pub’toverfest Ale.

“We’ve done the food specials for the last couple of years, but stepping it up with the live entertainment and beer is what’s unique this year,” said Scott Gilmet, Director of Marketing & Sales for Park Place Lodge. “I think it’s going to be really fun.”

Rock’toberfest partygoers can enjoy music from East Kootenay oompah-accordian-rock band L8, with DJ Jim Paul spinning classic rock in between sets. The festivities will also include a yodeling contest, giveaways and prizes, and of course, the classic Oktoberfest one-litre beer steins.
