Entertainment during the festivities will be provided by The Old Bastards Band who will kick off the party with old time favorites at 1pm. The Old Bastards is a classic rock and roll Seacoast band who came into life in 2009 drawing from the members shared love of music and fun times. Cover band for the Old Bastards will be Party Time DJ, a Southern New Hampshire premier full service Disc Jockey and Entertainment that has serviced the seacoast area for decades.
Although Oktoberfest is mainly perceived as a beer festival, parents can make an Oktoberfest Family Day out of it. While parents enjoy themselves with music, German beer and Bavarian dishes, children can participate in different activities such as face paint, stein/mug painting, bobbing for apples, use the basketball hoop or play the bean bag in the Kids Zone designated area. Cotton candy, popcorn and an ice cream stand will keep your kids busy for a while.
The 401 Tavern this year will have a petting zoo provided by Wild Life Encounters Co. A veritable ark of exotic animals is coming to Oktoberfest. Petting zoo will include a wallaby, an alligator, a big snake, tropical birds and many more. Guests of all ages are encouraged to see, touch and feed the exotic and domestic animals in this hands-on exhibit.
The 401 Tavern encourages patrons to dress up in German attire. An Oktoberfest-themed photo booth is going to be set up for family and friends to take pictures. Tag your pictures on facebook with #401tavernoktoberfest for a chance to win prizes.
