beerFriends of Clay Center Oktoberfest Fundraiser

Charleston’s favorite fall fundraiser is back once again this year with more brews, more food and more acivities. Now on its sixth year, the Oktoberfest fundraiser will be held on September 26th, from 1pm to 5pm at the Appalachian Power Park. The event is open to all beer lovers above 21, and admission costs $25 per person, which includes beer tastings and a commemorative Oktoberfest cup.

Aside from the beer, one of the event’s highlights is the cornhole tournament, which debuted last year. The tournament is open to teams of two (additional entry fee of $15 per person will be collected), and the first 16 teams to arrive before 1pm will be eligible to play.

Proceeds of the event will benefit the Clay Center’s educational programs.
