Rockford plays host to Ocktoberfest


This Saturday, October 1st, Rural On Tap will be hosting Rocktoberfest 2016!

rocktoberfestRocktoberfest is a kid-friendly outdoor live music event featuring the best German and American Octoberfest brews, and more!

“We’ll have several rare tap offerings, a stein holding competition contest for men and women, and lots of food and fun for the whole family,” says Maggie Slankard, General Manager of Rural On Tap.

Steinholding is a strength contest in which competitors hold a full one-liter beer out in front of their bodies with a straight arm, parallel to the ground until they’re the last standing, or lifting in this case.

Music starts with the 2014 RAMI award winners for best tribute band, Tattoo You from 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Power Trip from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Admission is only a $3 donation with all proceeds going to benefit The Northwest Community Center of Rockford. This charity is an important element to the Rockford of history. For nearly 70 years, the Northwest Community Center has served the human service needs of the diverse population of northwest Rockford. Serving more than 7,500 of our neighbors annually, NWCC is a focal point for community development and an important resource for people of all ages.

Rural on Tap is located at 1710 Rural St., in Rockford and is your neighborhood bar with an extensive craft beer selection. Join the festivities this Saturday and make a lasting memory with the family!
