Cullman Oktoberfest & BBQ Challenge!
This past Saturday kicked off Cullman, Alabama's annual Oktoberfest Celebration. In it's 31st year, Oktoberfest celebrates Cullman's rich German heritage with a week long schedule of events. A variety of musical entertainment, German cuisine, various tours and other events are taking place around town during the week. This Saturday promises no shortage of fun events for the entire family!! Stop by Southern Accents to pick up Oktoberfest information or visit cullmanoktoberfest.com for a complete schedule of events.
Saturday morning starts early with the annual Oktoberfest 5k and 10k run. For the more adventurous, this year offers a first time event: the Oktoberfest Mud Run at Stony Lonesome OHV Park. Perhaps you're more of the couch potato kind... you may want to get in on the Oktoberfest Bed Race at Depot Park. Not forgetting our four legged friends, the Hundfest Doggy Events promises lots of fun and laughs with the Wiener Dog Race and Pet Parade. While in the Depot Park/Festhalle area you can also enjoy arts and crafts, a bratwurst eating contest, carriage rides, lots of good eats and plenty of festive German folk music. Visit our BLOG for event times and more info.
Cross the street and round the corner on to Clark Street and you'll bump into the Biergarten sponsored by Smith Farms. Each night for the rest of this week you can enjoy awesome entertainment, including one of our favorite bluegrass bands Rollin' in the Hay who are set to take the stage Thursday night at 8:00 pm. Enjoy a catered meal and wine tasting for $15 per person Thursday - Saturday. Visit Smith Farms for a complete schedule of events.
An event that we are super excited about is the 2nd Annual Oktoberfest BBQ Challenge. This event sponsored by the Cullman Women's League is an officially sanctioned Kansas City BBQ Society state championship competition! Teams from all over the country will be competing for bragging rights and big prizes. The sweet smell of smoked cuisine will be wafting from the fair grounds starting at 9:00 am. The day long event will include a huge kids area full of free activities. A variety of food and drinks will be available including a beer tent for those celebrating Oktoberfest in the traditional style. Locally favorite bands will be taking the stage throughout the day including the Blake Scott Band, Barflys, Microwave Dave & The Nukes and Chad Bradford. Football fans will be able to catch their favorite game as they are broadcast on big screens. Visit the Oktoberfest BBQ Challenge website for detailed information or to register for the Kamado Joe "Whole Meal on the Grill" cooking demonstration. This is an event not to be missed!
Southern Accents will be open Saturday from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm... we'll also be out and about town enjoying all the festivities! Stop by the store, grab an ice cold bottled coke and pick up a schedule of all the fun activities! While you are at the BBQ contest be sure and say hello to ~The Pig!
