Giant community tents, giant community tables, and a setup fit for a Viking beer-fueled feast. We’re taking over the parking lot in front of the brewery, erecting a stage, and introducing Avenged By Vikings, our newest addition to our celebrated series. Eureka, Mosaic, Simcoe, Mandarina on a bed of Oat and Wheat malt in the first hazy Viking to date.
This party is for the 21 & over crowd with live music from the authentic 60s garage rockers The Way Out and The Telltale Hearts. Wurst Kitchen joins us for the third straight year slinging sausages as they have since 1895. Games, tunes, beer for days, and appropriate German scents of a proper feast. We’re also going to roll out some fake grass and introduce you to the greatest game you’ve never played, it’s called Kubb. It’s a mix between bocce, horseshoes, and sometimes goes by the name Viking Chess.
Last year we debuted our first-ever session designed for parents and tiny humans. The most talented balloon artist you’ve probably ever seen, a magician, Anderson’s Bookshop will lead storytime at the top and bottom of each hour, airbrush tattoos, and more. Again in 2019 Wurst Kitchen will be grilling German fare more appropriate for the tiny humans.
If you are interested only in the Family-Friendly Celebration, tickets are $10 and free for any kids under the age of 12. If you’re planning on attending the evening session, any level ticket to that will gain you access to the morning session if you plan to do both. Our suggestion is to get tickets to the evening session, take advantage of the daytime and bring them out to celebrate, head home between sessions for babysitters/grandparents/etc. and then return for the show and a much deserved break.
Tickets for everything will go on sale Friday, August 9 at noon online. The link will be posted here and across all of our social media channels. There will only be 750 tickets available. We repeat, there will only be 750 tickets available. This event sold out last year and the year before.
An a la carte ticket level that gets you in the gate for the tunes and then beers are on you. You also have access to the Family-Friendly session during the day.
The opportunity here includes admission but you will get a three tab wristband with your purchase for three sixteen-ounce beers. Keep in mind we will not be selling wristbands day of and beer pricing will be $6.50 drafts.
All the things above with a hearty, custom, and limited SOB thumbprint mug to celebrate Oktöberfest appropriately. Nothing says Munich like a tall ice cold mug of hazy IPA.
All Viking Oktöberfest Tickets (evening session) will access to the family session. Bring the kids in the morning for arts and crafts, story time, and more and then bring them home to a sitter and come party at night. Everything at the Family Session will be a la carte.
Avenged By Vikings (Brand New)
Kidnapped By Vikings
A local legend in smoked meats, Aurora’s Wurst Kitchen has been making all natural handmade sausages and smoked meats since Grover Cleveland was President. Ed Schleining and his team have solidified their position as an Illinois and Midwest institution. You should not only support them on this day, but all the days when you’re in the market for all natural handmade sausages and smoked anything.
As always let us know if you’re curious about something. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or hit us up on the socials. We’re here for you and might even be down to mediate with your in-laws over a few beers.
