A few Oktoberfest photos

Oktoberfest 2018 is over.    Here are a few photos from this year’s festival.

Last Weekend of Oktoberfest

That’s it, folks.  Oktoberfest New Orleans 2018 is over.  See you next year.

October 19-20 is the last weekend for Oktoberfest 2018.

Closing out the stage on both Friday and Saturday nights is the high energy, Grammy-nominated Alex Meixner band.  Frontman Alex Meixner plays accordion and trumpet, sometimes simultaneously.   The music? Drinking songs,  rock songs redone by a wild accordion, and they’re bringing a fiddler for some polkas.  It’s going to be lots of fun.  (7pm-11pm)

Saturday 3pm there are the Dachshund Races!  And during the afternoon, 2 performances by New Orleans’ own 610 Stompers.  As well as more German music, beer and food, of course.
