There are plenty of Oktoberfest celebrations.  This one is different, this is LEDGEtober's Flannel Fest.  In Minnesota who doesn't own a Flannel shirt?  Well the hardest thing you'll need to do to attend this festival is to decide which one to wear to Flannel Fest at the Ledge Amphitheater on October 7th.

They bill this as "A 21+ Event of EPIC Beer-Portions".  You might want to start working out the strength of your drinking arm now.  There'll be a stein holding contest to be ready for and if you want to win you're going to need that arm strength.  Their facebook post describes it:

  • Stein Holding Contest - Prepare your muscles for one of the toughest contests yet! See how long you can hold one of our steins and maybe win something while doing it.


That's not the only contest.  There's more fun to be had.

  • Best Dressed - Whether you're dusting off your Lederhosen and Dirndls or ironing out a Flannel festastic outfit join us to win big!
  • Best Beard Contest - Got your hunting beard ready? Tidy it up for a chance to get a great prize!

It's like an elevated version of your family cookout but without that annoying Uncle and way better beer!  Yard games, craft breweries, contests, food and live entertainment too.
