This SUNDAy! October 2nd, from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM the St. Croix Animal Welfare Center will be hosting its first (hopefully Annual) Oktoberfest party at the Agricultural Fairgrounds! Woo Hoo. SPATEN Beer on TAP- we brought in Kegs of beer and will be doing the 'tapping ceremony' to kick off the event a 5:00! Your get a HUGE commemorative glass Mug with Oktoberfest logo, filled with the good stuff. You also get a great German meal with your choice of Brat/Knokworst/Chicken !/4, along with choice of two of several great sides.... saurkraut, red cabbage, spaetzl, german potatoe salad, beer carrots, etc. - How about a slice of sourdough bread with that! All for just $50.00 donation to the shelter. Enjoy the brass band OOM PA PA, do the chicken dance with us, try your hand at barrell rolling or just sit and watch the festivities while you munch on a PRETZEL! Top off the evening with Apple Strudle or Gingerbread (Lebkuchen)! It's going to be a super great time and it all benefits the St. Croix Animal Welfare Center.! Don't miss this event. Tickets are available now at Polly's at the Pier, Ziggy's Gas Station, Undercover Books, A Better Copy, Trends in Town! $50.00 for a great cause and a great time!
Oh... don't be confused. There is an in-town Rocktoberfest event on Saturday during the day from 11 to 7 to benefit another great cause; St. Paddy's day Parade Fund. If you are a die-hard German fan... like I am.... you could attend both and make it a German weekend!
Really hope to see you all at the St. Croix Animal Shelter's OKTOBERFEST! Let's make this a great event for the shelter.
PS... if you are a longtime shelter fan you might remember our Clambakes... the shelter is hoping to make Oktoberfest it's new affordable fall event that appeals to everyone... Please support them. This is a great value for a great cause.
Other beverages, wine, soda, water, ice tea, etc. will be served. No worries if you don't like beer. 🙂

Coming over from STT and looking forward to supporting a great cause and having a good time STT gets our support too. They all need our help.
will people be dressing up for Oktoberfest (costumes?)
do we need to bring chairs?
If this is like Oktoberfest in Michigan, people who dress up usually wear leiderhosen (sp) and other german-type garb.
Hi all! Yay! Dave! We are so glad that you are coming over from the sisterisland of STT and appreciate your support of the Animal Shelter and the STT Humane Society... both do great work , and much needed work, in our communities. Hope to meet you at the fest.
SMlark.... YES! Bavarian attire is not required of course, but several of us love the oppurtinity to dress up and show of our German heritage. Their will be many of us in Lederhosen and many of us in Dirndles! We will be having a great time singing Ein Prosit and other Oktoberfest favorites. I'm sure you will find it quite fun. And like Dave says... a very worthy cause.
We put up the tent today! Its huge! Tomorrow and Sunday we will do the decorating and it will be fabulous for your arrivals on Sunday.
Sunday is always funday so this weekend make it Sunday Oktoberfest Funday and come 'Prost' to the animals!
