Discover Bristol Hosts Inaugural Bristol Oktoberfest on October 22, 2022


A new food and drink event is coming to downtown Bristol as Discover Bristol hosts the inaugural Bristol Oktoberfest presented by The Bristol Hotel on Saturday, October 22, from 2-6 PM.

The new event allows attendees to stroll through Bristol’s historic downtown district as they sample German-style food and libations from 10 Bristol area businesses.

“The fall season is such a popular time in Bristol, and the Bristol Oktoberfest event adds to it, said Christopher Perrin, Marketing Director for Discover Bristol. It’s a great opportunity to participate in a classic German tradition while sampling food and drink from some of Bristol’s best restaurants and breweries.”

Participants will go from stop to stop and enjoy a sample of various offerings at each location. Attendees are encouraged to wear their favorite Oktoberfest outfits to get into the spirit of the festival.

“Bristol Oktoberfest provides another fun experience to showcase the culinary and brewing talent found in Bristol, said Spence Flagg, owner of Cascade Draft House and chair of the Discover Bristol Food & Beverage Committee. “The popularity of the Wing Walk shows an appetite for more food and drink events, and our group worked together to create this fun event.”

Venues participating in Bristol Oktoberfest are Cascade Draft House with Travis Milton of Hickory, Delta Blues, Lumac at The Bristol Hotel, Machiavelli’s, Southern Churn, Southern Craft, State Street Brewing, Stateline Bar & Grille, The Angry Italian, and The Corner.

Tickets for the event are $30. A $2 processing fee will be added to each ticket sold online.
