CONTEST: Weekend passes to Beau’s Oktoberfest, Oct. 2 – 3!


*NOTE* – This contest is now closed.

With autumn quickly rushing in, that can only mean one thing. Yes, it’s almost time for Beau’s Oktoberfest happening this weekend, October 2nd and 3rd. Our friends at Beau’s have really raised the bar this year – the 7th annual fest includes an exciting blend of great music, fun activities, and, of course, delicious craft beer all weekend long. Last year Beau’s Oktoberfest saw more than 19,000 attendees over the two days, and raised $106,000 for local community groups and charities.

Passes are selling out quick, and Saturday general admission are already gone. However, we are GIVING AWAY A PAIR OF WEEKEND PASSES!!! Please note that bus transportation is no longer available. So if you missed the early bird boat, there is still hope.
