Oktoberfest is coming to the Cottonwood Public House (1311 Washington St.) Sept. 28 from noon to 11 p.m.

This event, hosted by the Key City Brewing Company, Visit Vicksburg and Cottonwood, will celebrate German heritage with food, music and drinks all served by Kellnerins and Kellners (waiters and waitresses for those of you who don’t speak German).

Soft pretzels baked by Cottonwood Public House

“We’ll have traditional German-style beers that we brew here in-house available, German-inspired food, so soft pretzels, schnitzels and other wonderful things like that,” said Zack Erickson, manager and brewer at Cottonwood. “We’ll also have German Polka music playing, and people will be dressed up in Lederhosen. This will be the closest thing you can get to Germany in Mississippi.”

In addition to the festivities in the downstairs portion of the Cottonwood Public House, guests can travel to the roof where they’ll find a Biergarten.

“We recently opened our rooftop event center, and we’ll be up there with long feasting tables and serving our wonderful German beer and pretzels,” Erickson said. “Everything will be decked out in traditional German decorations. So hopefully, if the weather is good, we’ll be able to hang out outside, drink beer and enjoy the beautiful weather.”

This German-style celebration is an annual event that you do not want to miss. For more information on Oktoberfest go to the Facebook event page, or contact the Cottonwood Public House at 601-501-7712.

“It’s an event unlike any other event going on in Vicksburg,” Erickson said. “This is the closest you can get to Oktoberfest in Munich here in Mississippi.”
