Southwest Harbor -

SOUTHWEST HARBOR, Maine — The 16th annual Oktoberfest will be held Friday-Saturday, Oct. 7 – 8, at Smuggler’s Den Campground, Route 102. On Saturday from11:30 – 6 p.m., sample beer from more than 20 Maine brewers who describe this event as their favorite brewfest of the year.

The Mainely Country Band and Mark Kanter and the Bluesboy Revue will be playing in the food tent where you can choose from barbequed pork and beans, Asian specialties and Italian offerings, lobster and crabmeat rolls, and other seafood, fried dough, traditional picnic fare, and yummy desserts.

The crafters tent featuring more than 24 Maine crafters is a great place to shop for gifts for yourself and friends.

This year we will repeat our successful wine and cheese party from 3-6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7.  Maine-distributed wines from six different countries will be presented by knowledgeable wine experts and accompanied by delicious and locally produced cheeses. Roberta DeMuro will again be providing the music. Last year, our first wine and cheese party was well received – departing guests asking us to repeat the event in 2011. After the party, dine in one of our area’s fine restaurants.

Tickets for the wine and cheese afternoon on Friday are $22 per couple ($12 for individual) and include a program describing the wines and a souvenir wine glass. Entrance on Saturday to the beer tent is $25 and includes 10 tickets for beer samples in your 4ounce souvenir beer glass. General admission for non-drinkers is $10. Attend both events and receive a 20% discount on your Saturday admission.
