There aren’t many places on earth as scenic as Klamath County during the autumn season, a treat that many visiting the Southern Oregon area will get to take in this fall. Coming September 19th, 2020, is the second Annual Klamath Basin Oktoberfest. The event will take place at the Bill Collier Community Ice Arena at the Running Y Ranch Resort in Klamath Falls, Oregon.
The event is hosted by the Klamath County Economic Development Association (KCEDA). The Klamath Basin Oktoberfest is a large, affordable, family-friendly event that brings together Southern Oregon’s very best in brewers, food vendors, entertainment, and outdoor living, creating an experience that everyone can be a part of.
The event has been organized to promote Southern Oregon’s brewing products, giving tourists and area residents an opportunity to enjoy the many excellent offerings produced by local and regional breweries, where brewers such as the highly acclaimed Skyline Brewing Company, will be in attendance, and more. Additionally, the Klamath Basin Oktoberfest has been designed to gather many of the basin’s tastiest food options for people to come out and savor, showcasing some of the top Klamath County restaurant vendors, including delicious offerings from the Ruddy Duck.
Unlike many events of this type, the event is designed to be inclusive to people of all ages, serving as a family friendly environment that will have lots to do and see in terms of games, activities, and live entertainment such as Mile Long Fuse, Fleischklopfer, and Nephilim. A major hallmark of Oregon culture is its amazing outdoor living and exemplary brewing industry, where event hosts, KCEDA, are inspired by to have this event be an opportunity to celebrate the many things that make Klamath County special, bringing together the people and businesses that make the beautiful, northwest community unique.
in 2019, event attendees participated in the Best Dressed Contest and the People’s Choice Award for favorite drink. Attendees are encouraged to dress in Oktoberfest attire, but come prepared with extra layers for the evening.
