The Oktoberfest celebration is designed to bring beer enthusiasts downtown to enjoy a night of tasting Georgia craft brews. Over 30+ downtown business participants extend their business hours, and their hospitality, to downtown guest to serve as tasting locations for the different varieties of craft beer that is available for sampling. Downtown businesses provide complimentary refreshments, retail sales specials and other treats for all Oktoberfest guests. Main Street Newnan releases a limited amount of 500 Oktoberfest tickets for drinkers that are available for purchase. Tickets will be available for sale online beginning September 7th at $30 per-person. We encourage interested guests to purchase tickets in advance, as tickets usually sell out a week in advance of the event. Participation in Oktoberfest festivities is cost free for non-drinking participants.
Upon sign-in, each participant will receive a commemorative beer mug and an informational brochure. Each participant will also receive a wristband to indicate that they are of legal drinking age.
Event-goers must provide a valid photo ID at the registration table located at the Carnegie Library for admittance.
Event registration will take place from 5:00pm-7:00pm. Guests will not be able to have tickets scanned after 7:00pm.
This year, we are adding a concert in Greenville Street Park from 8pm-10pm. Ticket holders will receive two complimentary beers at the concert. Oktoberfest tastings will occur at downtown businesses from 5pm-9pm.
