Inaugural YachtoberFest: Boats, Beers & Bratwurst! Historic Thea Foss Waterway esplanade Sat. Oct 4, directly behind The Museum of Glass in Tacoma
Boats, Beers & Bratwurst:  Inaugural YachtoberFest
Brings Unique Festival to Tacoma's Waterfront

Thousands of fun-loving revelers are expected to attend the inaugural YachtoberFest on the Historic Thea Foss Waterway esplanade Saturday, October 4th directly behind The Museum of Glass in Tacoma.

This inaugural fundraiser is presented by the Tacoma Waterfront Association and designed to mingle the northwest's enthusiasm for boating and craft beer. Open to the public (21+), the event will feature several craft brewers, wineries, German food, and live entertainment.

Proceeds from YachtoberFest will benefit the Tacoma Waterfront Association, the Tacoma Youth Marine Foundation, and Citizens for a Healthy Bay. All three non-profit organizations work to promote and improve Tacoma's waterfront.

"We are very excited to bring such a unique event to Tacoma," said Gregg Reynolds, TWA president. "YachtoberFest will merge two of our local community's passions  boating and craft beer -- and bring people down to the Historic Foss Waterway to enjoy a great day at one of Tacoma's best assets, its waterfront."

The formal portion of YachtoberFest will kick off at 11:45 October 4th with VIP remarks and a traditional "tapping of the keg ceremony".  Beer will begin flowing at high noon.  Food, drinks and entertainment will be available until 6 p.m.

YachtoberFest is a 21 or older event and valid ID must be provided upon entry. Entrance tickets are $12 per person if purchased in advance, $20 at the door. Food and drinks will be pay-as-you-go. Event will be held rain or shine. Tents will be erected if necessary.  No pets please.

Limited-edition commemorative beer steins and apparel will be available for purchase.

Costumes and traditional dress are highly encouraged.

Parking will be available at various free and paid places along the waterfront. Click on the "Parking" tab on our website for details.   www.yachtoberfest.com

Moorage for boats will be available at Delin Docks, Dock Street Marina, Foss Harbor Marina and the Foss Waterway Seaport. Please click on our "Boaters Info" tab on the website for more information.
