It’s October

With the turning of the calendar page to a brand new month, the best neighborhood festival is less than two weeks away.

That’s right folks: it’s nearly time for Oktoberfest in Nashville’s very own Germantown neighborhood. If you’ve never been before, get ready for a day of beer, live music, German delicacies, arts and crafts, and lots of people roaming the North End in search of the best German experience in Nashville.

Of course, the festival always needs volunteers, so think about pouring beer, serving up bratwurst, or passing out water to those running the 5k that morning (these kind volunteers will be thanked with a ticket for a free beer since they’ll be getting up early to come lend a hand for the racers).

So, get ready for a good time on October 13. If you’re interested in volunteering, send me an email at sam /at/ coolpeoplecare /dot/ org.

    Noooooo, the Tomato Art Fest is the best.

    Sorry, couldn’t resist. :-) Actually, I’ve never been to Oktoberfest, so I can’t compare the two.

    I have been to both, and I have lived in both the North End and in Historic Edgefield in East Nashville.

    From my point of view, there is no comparison. Oktoberfest is hands-down the better street festival. It was when I lived in East Nashville, and it still is. East Nashville has its own strengths and the late summer Tomato Fest–while up and coming–is not one of its finer selling points.

    Yeah, I figured. Just stirring up trouble. :-)
