The 2nd annual Osktoberfest will take place on Saturday, October 26 in downtown Brevard. The festival will showcase Oskar Blues’ locally-brewed craft beers, locally-made brats and live music from 6pm-10pm. The event will be held on East Main Street (near Water Oaks Suites), after Brevard’s annual Halloweenfest.
“We’re super excited to help host another rad Osktoberfest party this year, especially now that Oskar Blues is up and running just down the road,” says Oskar Blues Brewery’s marketing director Anne-Fitten Glenn.
“As Osktoberfest is going to complete our day’s celebrations of all things Halloween, there will be a few fun elements from Halloweenfest continued into the evening,” said festival organizer and producer for the Heart of Brevard, Leigh Trapp. “We’ll be holding a costume contest that evening. Don your favorite zombie costume or grab some lederhosen to truly celebrate Osktoberfest in grand style. There will be cash prizes offered for winning costumes,” she added.
The new East Main Street Stage will showcase these live music acts: Soldier’s Heart, Faded Jade, and headliners Leigh Glass and the Hazards.
Leigh Glass and the Hazards
The bluesy songstress and her band, the Hazards, play their own gutsy, charismatic style of rock and roll, with deep roots from the Western North Carolina region. The songs are original and the live show is sweaty, passionate, funny, and engaging.

Oskar Blues Brewery beer will be for sale, including their celebrated Osktoberfest brew. Food Matters Market will serve up traditional brats made with Oskar Blues beer. And to top it off, a portion of proceeds from beer sales will be donated to the Oskar Blues Brewery’s CAN’d AID Colorado Flood Relief Fund.
“Great beer, great food, and great music in downtown Brevard with our community seems like the perfect way to celebrate our new home,” adds Aaron Baker, Oskar Blues Brewery’s marketing assistant.
