What started as a small town festival grew to become the world’s largest celebration of tradition and community.
Originating in 1810, the first Oktoberfest was a wedding reception for Bavaria’s Crown Prince and Princess. Against tradition, the couple invited Munich’s common people to the festivities and forty thousand people showed up for the celebration. Imagine trying to fit that crowd on White Street!
An authentic Oktoberfest celebration in the heart of the Arts & Entertainment district of downtown provides entertainment, a unique cultural experience and a celebration of values honoring tradition and small town community.
Continuing the high standards for festivals set by the Friday Night on White concert series, White Street Brewing Company promises a quality event, responsibly run that provides the family-friendly atmosphere expected by the leaders and citizens of Wake Forest.
