Oktoberfest in Deadwood

Oktoberfest is happening again in Deadwood! Join the celebration and catch live German music, polka dancing, free food, and of course—the wiener dog races. The 2012 Oktoberfest events begin on Friday, October 5th and conclude on Sunday, October 7th.

Cadillac Jack’s will have great specials running all three days: Stop by for a beer brat with sauerkraut and a bottle of Beck’s for just $6.

This year’s events will feature the first Tour de Oktoberfest, a chance to play games at various Deadwood locations and win prizes, which will be awarded Friday night at Oyster Bay.

Saturday will kick-off with the Wiener Dog Race Registration and Pumpkin Bake-off Contest in the morning and everyone is welcome to partake in the Brat giveaway at noon on Main Street. The Wiener Dog Races will happen at 1:00 p.m. and there will be German cook-offs all afternoon.

The 5th Annual Beer Barrel Games will start at 3:00 p.m. on Main Street and awards be given out at 6:00 p.m. Later that night, catch the Oktober Polka Fest and Wife Carrying Contest.
