Days Til Oktoberfest!

Opening Ceremony

When: 11:30 a.m., Saturday
Where: Sam Adams Main Stage at 2nd & Elm

The ceremonies begin with a colorful parade of German-American representatives and musicians wearing traditional vestments visiting each fest tent. Keg tapping at each fest tent will mark the opening of that tent. A flag and seal will then be hung at each tent. This ceremony has its roots in the original authentic Oktoberfest in Munich.
