We are excited to announce the...

17th Annual Stowe Oktoberfest

October 4 - 6, 2013


Friday, October 4th 7-11pm

Free Live Music & Dancing!

Come out and support a great cause!


This year we welcome The Sugardaddies,

a homegrown Stowe Vermont band to the stage!

Come rock and roll, and dance the night away!

Join us at the town of Stowe Events Field, under the big tent,

for a rock'n roll concert “kick off” to the Oktoberfest festival.

Beer, wine and Wursts available for purchase.


The Stowe Oktoberfest is proud to support a worthwhile cause
from a portion of the proceeds raised at Friday evening's event.

The Clarina Howard Nichols Center, founded in 1981, works to end

domestic and sexual violence on Lamoille County.  Clarina provides advocacy,

shelter, support and direct services to victims and survivors of domestic and

sexual violence, as well as community based outreach programs to affect social change.

Join us Friday evening, and help the Rotary Club of Stowe provide Clarina with items

that are invaluable to their shelters and services!












Saturday, Oct. 5th, 11:00am - 8:00pm
Sunday, Oct. 6th, 11:00am - 4:00pm


The Town of Stowe’s event field  will be transformed into a Bavarian village, under a traditional tent this year for this annual celebration of the harvest and fall foliage. From Oompah bands to authentic Bavarian foods and freshly brewed Vermont beers to traditional sing-a-longs and dancing, even a silent auction... there’s something for every “villager”... young and old. It's a weekend full of music, dancing, and of course great beer. Oktoberfest is a great  time for a good cause. Last year, Oktoberfest allowed Stowe Rotary to provide over $50,000.00 worth of support to over twenty local charities and scholarships in the greater Lamoille/Washington County region.
