The 2015 Beer Stein design:
Each year the Richmond Oktoberfest offers a Beer Stein with a picture featuring a famous place in Germany or in Virginia. Over the years these steins have become real collector items. We are proud to decorate the 2015 Stein with a picture of "Burg Eltz" an authentic middle age castle located near the Mosel River Germany.
The Richmond Oktoberfest Committee is planning this year’s event on behalf of the Deutscher Sportclub Richmond, and the Gesangverein, Virginia.
"As always we offer two nights of genuine German Oktoberfest entertainment including traditional and modern German dance music, Bavarian Folk Dancers, and many other surprises."
"As usual we offer a large selection of typical German foods, such as sizzling bratwurst, knackwurst, pork, chicken, potato salad, potato pancakes, sauerkraut,and landjaeger."
