Plant Riverside District to Host Oktoberfest, Offering Free Live Music, Keg Bowling and Family-Friendly Fun

Plant Riverside District -- Savannah, Ga.’s newest and most exciting destination for dining, shopping and live entertainment -- will host Oktoberfest 2021, featuring a range of free, family-friendly events every weekend from Saturday through Sunday, October 31.

Oktoberfest is a popular annual festival in Munich, Germany that’s traditionally held over a two-week period in late September and early October. The event originated in 1810, as part of the official celebration of the marriage of the crown prince of Bavaria, who was later known as King Louis I, to Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. All Munich citizens were invited to join in the festivities, which eventually became known as Oktoberfest.

“We look forward to celebrating Oktoberfest at Plant Riverside District with a blend of old and new traditions,” said Richard C. Kessler, Chairman and CEO of The Kessler Collection. “We warmly invite local residents and guests to join us at Savannah’s Entertainment District for a festive outdoor Oktoberfest event.”

On Saturdays from 1-4 p.m., the Pavilion Tent along the riverfront at Plant Riverside District will feature free live music as well as free keg bowling, bratwurst eating contests and stein holding competitions. Bob and the Polka Dots will perform traditional polka music at the Pavilion Tent from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, October 9; and Sunday, October 31.

In addition, the Pavilion Tent at Plant Riverside District will feature free live music on Friday and Saturday evenings from 7 to 10 p.m., showcasing the Eric Culberson Band, Lyn Avenue, Draucker, Nickel Bag of Funk and other talented local and regional artists. Bob Taylor will perform live at the Biergarten on Fridays and Saturdays from 5 to 7 p.m. and on Sundays from 4 to 6 p.m.

Throughout Oktoberfest, 14 exceptional restaurants at Plant Riverside District will offer a range of food and drink specials.

“We can’t wait to celebrate Oktoberfest again this year, and hope everyone will come down to Plant Riverside District to enjoy incredible food, drink, live music and fun,” said Tyler Gray, Director of Entertainment at JW Marriott Savannah Plant Riverside District.
