The 41st Annual Nashville Oktoberfest, one of the largest festivals in the South, is hosting a virtual event Oct. 10th in place of its traditional gathering in historic Germantown.

“Personal safety over profits was the #1 reason for the decision,” says Michael King, Director of The Nashville Oktoberfest. “This festival was not designed to be a socially distant event, and I cannot in good conscience produce an event that attracts more than 300,000 people and not worry about the health & safety of our staff, volunteers and attendees.”

Another safety factor is the ongoing construction underway in the Germantown area following tornadoes in March that ravaged downtown Nashville.

In an effort to keep the tradition of Oktoberfest alive… this year’s event “Prost in Place!” is a virtual beer tasting, 5K race & Daschund Derby.

The celebration begins at 5 pm Central on Saturday, Oct. 10 via Facebook Live on The Nashville Oktoberfest’s Facebook page.  Say Cheers! Music City style with friends and family with your personal Prost in Place! Party Box. The box includes a commemorative stein, themed swag, and a complimentary beer token for the in-person 2021 festival.

Featured beer for the tastings are festival favorites from Sierra Nevada and Paulaner.

Purchase your box and beer online at thenashvilleoktoberfest.com. Orders will be available for pickup at Monell’s at the Manor on Murfreesboro Road Friday, October 9th.
