Rocktoberfest returns for its tenth anniversary
Just as the weather transforms from summer to fall, Rock City is performing its own transition for the tenth annual Rocktoberfest. Explore the German heritage of Rock City and its founder Frieda Utermoehlen Carter through a guided tour of the Rock City gardens. During the tour, participants will learn the history behind the gardens as well as the history behind Frieda’s heritage and her love of folklore and fairytales.
Kids will have lots to occupy their time, tales of gnomes and other creatures as they head out on their own fairytale adventure to find where the Fall Fairy lives, to pumpkin painting, Fairyland Forest makeovers, panning for gems, and more.
Rock City Square will be converted “for a celebration of harvests and fall foliage.” Of course this includes live German music and, for those of you who can’t help but move to the accordion, polka lessons. (Lederhosen not provided.) To really get the German heritage feel, enjoy some authentic German food and wash it down with one of the specialty beers. Rocktoberfest is all about embracing Rock City’s German heritage, but it’ll be November before you know it, so plan your Rocktoberfest weekend while you can.
