Tiki Taki.. Tiki Taki.. Oi Oi Oi...!!!

Traditional German brass band styles intermingled with modern classics

Direct from Germany, Die echten Waldbuam TAKES THE STAGE!  

Oktoberfest songs are indeed of the oom-pah-pah, bobbing up and down in your seat, variety – but not exclusively. Sure you’ve got some polka over here… but you’ve also got some electric guitar, hard rock busting speakers over there.  Music includes both traditional German brass band styles intermingled with modern classics, and all shouted at the top of your lungs.   But as they say in Germany*, there’s a fine line between polka and “Party time!”

While the selection of Oktoberfest music is as wide as your beer mug is deep, there are a handful you’re absolutely sure to hear and definitely more than once. 

A live DJ will supplement the event experience while our German musicians take short break throughout the evening.

DELICIOUS AUTHENTIC GERMAN FOOD

BEGIN SERVING AT 5:00 P.M.
 
The Oktoberfest is the largest Volksfest in the world. Every year at the fest, millions of people descend upon Munich to partake in the epic multiple-week party. So what is German traditional Oktober food? There are definitely staples of German cuisine and Oktoberfest specialties that help create the most fulfilling Wiesn experience possible. Knowing what food is at Oktoberfest will make your decision much easier.
 
A main staple of the fest is, of course, the Oktoberfest pretzel. It is not only a sideshow to other meals, like Strudel.  You can find giant pretzels that people prefer to enjoy by themselves. Usually is has a side of mustard, or with cheese. Kids Zone will make and even wear a Pretzel Necklace!
 
Regardless of your choice, all Oktoberfest food is delicious and worth trying. The most important thing is to make sure you enjoy yourself. To this end, there is no better way to enjoy whatever meal you decide to try than by wearing a nice traditional pair of Lederhosen.

The German word for beer garden is biergarten, which is pronounced "bee-uh-gah-ten". Beer gardens are outdoor areas where people can enjoy beer and food, usually at shared tables under the shade of trees. They are a traditional part of German culture and are known for their sense of community, music, and large crowds!

ALPHORN BLOWING CONTEST

Enter to compete and possibly crowned as the 2024 Fountain Hills "Alphorn Yodeling" Champion!

Register to compete
Begins promptly each day at:  TBD
 
Alphorn playing is sometimes described in history as “blown yodeling”, as “yodeling on the instrument”, or as “yodeling on the alphorn”. What is meant by this? On the one hand, it echoes the similar contexts in which yodeling and the alphorn were played, namely in the Alps when herding cattle and as a means of communication over long distances, but also for entertainment at festivals and competitions, such as those that took place as early as 1805 on the Unspunnen meadow in Interlaken. On the other hand, it is musical features that make the alphorn sound like a yodel. In “Alpine Vibes”, special attention is paid to these:
