LINCOLN, NH (September 17, 2018) – White Mountain Oktoberfest, the region’s largest celebration of German food, drink, and music, will take place at Loon Mountain Resort over Columbus Day Weekend, October 6–7.
White Mountain Oktoberfest will give visitors the chance to enjoy seasonal brews, bratwurst, and breathtaking fall foliage alongside friends old and new. An Oompah band will provide the soundtrack to two days of fun events, including a stein-hoisting contest, keg toss, and plenty of fun activities for kids.
White Mountain Oktoberfest will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and admission is free. Visitors can share their White Mountain Oktoberfest experiences by tagging their photos #WMOktoberfest on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
The Loon Mountain Sports Tent Sale will offer deep discounts on last year’s skis, snowboards, boots, helmets, outerwear, and more.
Indoor/Outdoor Beer Garden
Adults will enjoy a range of seasonal beers from Samuel Adams at an indoor/outdoor beer garden. In addition to sampling Samuel Adams classics like Oktoberfest, New England IPA, and Sam ‘76, guests can also try several limited-release brews from Samuel Adams. Shandies and ciders from Traveler Beer Co., Angry Orchard, and Truly Spiked & Sparkling will also be available. TVs both inside and out will be playing the weekend’s big games, so you won’t have to miss out on any of the action.
Beer College with Samuel Adams
Students who enroll in this prestigious institution of hoppier learning will ride the Gondola to the summit of Loon Peak, where they'll soak up beer knowledge from the professionals at Samuel Adams.

White Mountain Oktoberfest wouldn't be the same without a full lineup of fun games and activities for all ages.
