Swine and Stein Oktoberfest
Gardiner, ME Ride in the pig, and roll out the barrel it's Swine and Stein time. On October 12th, 2013, Water Street in Historic Gardiner will be transformed as Gardiner Main Street produces its version of a traditional Oktoberfest. Our 4th annual event can promise an oompah band as well as yummy farm-to-table pork and other local offerings, delicious Maine craft beers, and a great lineup of local live music from Maine bands.
The festivities begin at 11:30am and run through 6:30pm. A number of popular restaurants and street vendors from across the state will be teaming up to serve an array of pork-driven dishes, including succulent pulled pork and sausages of all sorts. Get your pig on bread, plate, or stick, but make sure you get some because this event can satisfy everyone's taste buds. New this year, Kennebec Local Food Initiative and the Gardiner Farmers Market will be offering a local harvest supper, serving vegetarian samples from the bounty of the Maine harvest.
In addition to beer, pork, and music, there will be a number of ongoing activities, including a chicken fling, frozen T-shirt race, pumpkin carving and other children's activities. Expect entertainment for all ages, music of all types while re-acquainting yourself with businesses throughout our historic Downtown. This is a great opportunity to take in some of the best that Maine culture has to offer.
