Swine & Stein Oktoberfest
Ride in the pig, and roll out the barrel – it’s Swine and Stein time. On October 12th, 2013, Water Street in Historic Gardiner will be transformed as Gardiner Main Street produces its version of a traditional Oktoberfest. Our 4th annual event can promise an oompah band as well as yummy farm-to-table pork and other local offerings, delicious Maine craft beers, and a great lineup of local live music from Maine bands.
The festivities begin at 11:30am and run through 6:30pm. A number of popular restaurants and street vendors from across the state will be teaming up to serve an array of pork-driven dishes, including succulent pulled pork and sausages of all sorts. Get your pig on bread, plate, or stick, but make sure you get some because this event can satisfy everyone’s taste buds. New this year, Kennebec Local Food Initiative and the Gardiner Farmers Market will be offering a local harvest supper, serving vegetarian samples from the bounty of the Maine harvest.
Discount advance tickets will be on sale for the 4th annual Swine & Stein Oktoberfest event at local Gardiner merchants, and from www.gardinermainstreet.org in advance of the event. On the day of the event, tickets will be $15 with beer tasting, $10 with no beer. The first 1000 people through the gates on the day of the event will receive a complimentary souvenir taster glass. Children under 12 get free admission with parent.
