(Fort McMurray, AB, September 6, 2017) - Oktoberfest is back to raise steins in the Wood Buffalo region as MacDonald Island Park celebrates the second annual Oktoberfest presented by Don Scott McMurray Law Office on October 14, 2017.

Oktoberfest, which is marked around the world as a celebration of Bavarian culture, returns in 2017 after a tremendously successful sold-out event in 2016. This one night only event will feature live music, as well as German-inspired food and a variety of beer available for purchase.

“In 2016, the community displayed their tremendous support of this new event,” said Rachel Orser, Interim Chief Executive Officer of the Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo. “Tickets for the event sold out quickly last year, and this traditional celebration of German culture was warmly greeted as we lifted Oktoberfest steins for the first time at MacDonald Island Park. We are delighted to welcome the community to the event this year and we anticipate another fantastic year of fun.”

Guests at Oktoberfest will receive a commemorative stein and enjoy live musical entertainment. The Wood Buffalo Brewing Company will be providing a beer cask for the ceremonial “tapping of the first keg” and will have representatives in attendance to serve their signature German-inspired beer.  Guests are also encouraged to wear their best Oktoberfest costumes, with prizes being awarded for the best male and female Oktoberfest attire.

Tickets for Oktoberfest presented by Don Scott McMurray Law Office are available for purchase beginning at 10:00 am on Friday, September 8 online at RRCWB.ca/events and in person at the Shell Place Box Office at MacDonald Island Park. Admission for Oktoberfest is $39 plus applicable fees and taxes. Please note this event is designed for adults over the age of eighteen years and youth/children will not be admitted.
