Dear Octoberfest Friends and Volunteers,
Our last Oktoberfest was held in 2019. Due to the Corona crisis we had to cancel the Oktoberfest twice. A new year has arrived, and we are all hopeful that we will finally celebrate the 52nd annual Richmond Oktoberfest. As you know it takes a lot of hard work to plan such a large event, but our committee has never stopped preparing.
This week we had a meeting with the personnel at the Richmond Raceway to make arrangements for the 2022 Richmond Oktoberfest. Because of a scheduling conflict we had to move our Oktoberfest.
Instead of having the Fest on the 30th of September and the 1st of October, we scheduled the Oktoberfest to take place on the weekend of the 7th and 8th of October.
The fest will be on
Friday the 7th from 6:00PM to 11:00PM and on
Saturday the 8th from 3:00PM to 11:00PM.
As in prior years, we will do whatever it takes to present you with a traditional German – Style Oktoberfest Party consisting of fun bands and entertainment, authentic food, and of course an excellent selection of German beer.
So go ahead and mark your calendar with those dates and please continue to visit our website where we will keep you informed about our planning progress.
We hope to see you at the Fest. In the meantime, “Prost”!
Hans Stienen, President
