Covington’s Inaugural Oxtoberfest

Covington's inaugural Oxtoberfest takes place on Saturday, October 21st from 3 – 6 p.m. At the Covington Trailhead (419 N. New Hampshire Street). Tickets are available online at oxtoberfest.com for $30, and will be available at the gate for $35 if event does not sell out. Your ticket includes a sampling cup, local and national brewery samples, live music and other traditional beer fest activities! All proceeds from this event will benefit the Boys & Girls Club – Covington Unit. According to Event Coordinator Cody Ludwig, a group of friends wanted to help out the local Boys & Girls Club after going to their annual gala and falling in love with the organization. “We always knew it was good for the community, but the children that they mentor and give a place to go after school and during the summer really does make a huge difference in these kids' lives. It gives them a future that they may not otherwise have. This is an important cause that needs more funding and attention.” Oxtoberfest Beer Fest is a play on Covington's infamous “Ox-Lot” parking areas and the city's unofficial mascot, the Ox, combined with Oktoberfest-type activities. Food will be available for purchase and there will be plenty of beer to sample. Patrons are welcome to dress in traditional German garb or simply step out and enjoy the beautiful fall weather! info@oxtoberfest.org Follow event details and updates at facebook.com/theoxtoberfest.
