Septemberfest is America’s answer to Oktoberfest. Having felt shorted for years by German food, Polka music, and Lederhosen, America finally claimed its own tradition of BBQ, rock music, and daisy dukes. The one constant? Beer.
Septemberfest will feature over 150 beers, BBQ, and live entertainment. Music will be provided by “Stepping Feet,” a Dave Matthews tribute band, and “Petty Cash,” a tribute to Tom Petty and Johnny Cash. Food will be provided by the Border Grill Taco Truck, as well as burger and sausage vendors.
Festivities begin at 2 PM at the Paramount Studios in Hollywood. Admission is $40 and includes unlimited pours. Proceeds from the event will support Noah’s Bark Animal Rescue. For more information, visit the event’s website.
