The German Bierfest in Atlanta

What does the coming of summer mean to the GACC South? Beer. And lots of it.

Planning is already well underway for our 7th Annual German Bierfest, which will be held on Saturday, August 28th, 2010 in Woodruff Park in Atlanta, GA. The festival will run from 2:00 – 7:00 pm. The Bierfest is our largest event over the course of the year, with thousands of attendees that will flood Woodruff park, drink gallons upon gallons of beer, and maybe take a much needed recovery nap like this guy:

The festival includes over thirty different types of beer, entertainment for the whole family, and a variety of German and other food. Already on the schedule is local Atlanta band, The Conditionals.

Tickets are available online for $30 before the event (will be $35 day-of at the event), and include all you can drink beer and entertainment. However, if you buy your tickets before May 31, you can receive our EARLY BIRD SPECIAL! Enter the code “earlybier” for $5 off the ticket price (yes! All you can drink beer for only $25!)

Volunteers are still needed for two periods, from 2 – 4:30pm and from 4:30 – 7pm. Volunteers who work for one shift will be provided free admittance to the Bierfest when they are not working. Anyone interested can email bierfest@gaccsouth.com for more information. If you would like to volunteer, please include full name, email address, phone number and preferred shift.

The German Bierfest is an event for the whole family: children and designated drivers are welcome and will not have to pay an entrance fee. However, no one under 21 will be allowed to drink and no pets will be admitted, no exceptions. Usage of public transportation is encouraged and if anyone finds themselves in an unsafe condition to drive home, a designated driver company will be available.

Pictures from last year’s event can be found here. Visit the German Bierfest website for more information and updates as we get closer to the event.
