The sights, sounds, and tastes of Germany are making their way to The Hotel at Auburn University and Conference Center for the eighth annual Oktoberfest.

The event will take place in the hotel’s marquee on Oct. 21 from 4-9 p.m., and will feature traditional German fare, beers from breweries across the U.S., a selection of German wines and live entertainment.

The popular Homebrew Alley competition will also be returning with the chance for the winning brewer to have their homemade creation served on tap throughout the fall at A•T and Piccolo.

Oktoberfest attendees will get to choose from more than 100 beers from local craft breweries and national brand favorites. If beer isn’t your drink of choice, a selection German wines will be available to sample as well. To add to the authenticity of the event, German staples like bratwurst and pretzels will be available to purchase separately. Live music and TVs showing college football games will be set up throughout the festival.

Tickets will be available for purchase beginning Aug. 1 through Oct. 19.
