UPDATE FRIDAY OCTOBER 2ND 11:00AM
VIENNA OKTOBERFEST IS A GO! Your Oktoberfest team continues to watch the weather forecasts closely and is planning on a safe but slightly wet event. We have added several major tents to the Beer Garden to greatly expand the covered space. We had a rainy Oktoberfest a few years ago and we still had a blast! Don't let the sensationalized TV weather broadcasts cause you to miss a great event. The National Weather Service forecast for Saturday says "New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible" which means they expect far less than the 1-2 inches forecast for Friday. The hurricane is out of the picture. Dress for chilly weather - the forecast says "Cloudy, with a high near 57. Northeast wind around 16 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph" which is weather-speak for "Absolutely awesome outdoor beer-drinking weather!" Kids activities, entertainers, inflatables are still on! Bring a poncho, folding chair, umbrella etc. for Rocknoceros at 11AM! Vendors bring weights for your tent. Watch this space for further updates, next one expected Saturday morning around 7 AM if needed.

Greg Bernhard Vienna Oktoberfest Burgermeister

RoLLLL out the barrels... da da, da da da, da da.... Like me, I hope you are counting down the days until Vienna Oktoberfest on October 3rd from 11 to 7 on the town green. I am ready for brats, strudel, beer, and polka (not too much polka). I have been enjoying most of these things and Oktoberfest my whole life. I am huge fan of Vienna Oktoberfest, I have not missed one yet, and I am so honored to have been chosen again as Burgermeister for Vienna's Oktoberfest. I consider my appointment to Burgermeister as the crowning achievement of my life. Bring your friends! Bring your family! Alles Willkommen! There will be fun for all and I hope to see you there. Zuppa! Yours Truly, Greg Bernhard, Vienna Oktoberfest Burgermeister 2015
