Public access station dishing up suds and brats for OktoberFest LG

Brats, spaetzle and a community “tapping of the keg” are just a few of the items OktoberFest LG menu, as public broadcaster KCAT invites locals and visitors to soak up Germanic cultural activities.

The first bellow of “Prost!” is set to kick things off at noon on Sept. 25 from noon to 5pm on the Los Gatos Civic Center Lawn.

The event is scheduled to continue all afternoon—right until 5pm.

German music and games will be provided by The AlpineSound crew.

The AlpineSound will be a key part of setting the Oktoberfest tone in Los Gatos.

It’s all for a good cause, as the money will be used to benefit KCAT, which operates as Los Gatos’ local public access TV and radio station.

KCAT is 38 years old—and going strong. It aims to boost the vitality of the community via “the magic of television” and digital productions.

“We educate, entertain, inform, inspire, and offer a myriad of opportunities for all ages with focus on youth, teens, and adults 55+,” a spokesperson said.

Reverence Catering will be on the all-important food duties during the festival.

And what would an Oktoberfest be without a beer and wine garden?

Attendees can expect to take in (or possibly win) a beer bong tournament. Corn hole and other games are also on tap.

So, go and stock up on lederhosen now, while supplies at your trusted local Bavarian retailer of choice last.
