Ein, Zwei, Drei… Celebrate Oktoberfest at Harvest Haus 

 

Vancouver’s premier Northern European harvest festival celebrates the fourth year

 

Wet Ape Productions and The Social Concierge proudly announce the fourth annual Harvest Haus, running October 5 – 7 and October 13 – 14, 2017.

Over the course of two weekends, Sole Food Street Farms (88 Pacific Blvd) will be transformed into the West Coast’s largest Germanic-inspired cultural harvest festival, welcoming 1,500 revellers to seven seatings under the great Harvest Haus Halle tent.

Beginning with a theatrical keg tapping by the Harvest Haus Bürgermeister, each four-and-a-half-hour event boasts a fully immersive atmosphere complete with medieval tomfoolery, swashbuckling, axe throwing, swordplay by Academie Duello, live Bavarian brass oompah and favourite party hits by Vancouver’s “Oktoberators” on the central stage and the return of internationally renowned DJ Erick Decks from Frankfurt, Germany.

Guests will also enjoy European beers in authentic ceramic Bierkrug (steins), speciality German wines at communal long tables, giant Jenga and darts, and traditional Oktoberfest delicacies such as pretzels, Brezen, Bratwürst and Sauerkraut available in the open-air Marktplatz (marketplace).

Each seating will feature a special theme with tickets ranging from $25 for General Admission to $50 for VIP, available now at www.harvesthaus.com. Partial proceeds benefit the Music Heals Charitable Foundation that supports a wide range of music therapy services to communities in BC and across Canada.
