Join us Saturday, March 9, 2024 at 5 pm, for our “Halfway to Oktoberfest” Parade and Celebration! The Suwannee Avenue Marching Band will kick off the parade promptly at 5 pm at Hillsborough High School (Wilder Ave side) and lead everyone to the Independent for a ceremonial toast and tapping of Weihenstephaner OG Lager!
Afterwards, enjoy a night of live music from Scott Lavan Miller, John Nowicki, Andy Brey & more! We will be tapping some of the classic German favorites from Weihenstephan and Hofbrau, and we will feature a special dunkel lager we made in collaboration with King State Brewing! Our cafe will also be offering Oktoberfest food specials like our famous “Sausage Party”!
Break out those Dirndls and Lederhosen because Oktoberfest costumes are encouraged! Prost!
