The first 250 people to purchase tickets will receive a 2018 commemorative Oktoberfest beer mug.

A beautifully decorated wagon will deliver the kegs to the front of the Main Street Park at 4 pm where the mayor will tap the keg, it will be carried into the venue and Oktoberfest will kick off its evening of fun and entertainment. Guests are asked to use the main street entrance to receive wristbands. The first 250 ticket purchasers will receive commemorative mugs.

A buffet style dinner consisting of German Fare and a specially crafted beer will be offered in addition to live entertainment performed by the Die Shippensburg Blaskapelle German Band. Auctions will run throughout the evening and games of heads and tails will be played. Guests will be invited to partake in signing popular songs such as Sweet Caroline and Country Roads. Dining tables will be set up under a tent and high-top tables will be set around so that guests can walk around and stop to socialize during the evening.
