First-of-its-Kind Oktoberfest Celebration Coming to Mississauga
Although it's hard to believe that's pretty much fall, it's important to remember that autumn is an exciting time—especially since it's bringing a few new boozy festivals to Mississauga.
Recently, we found out that a massive beer festival is coming to the International Centre. Now, we've learned that the Rotary Club of Mississauga is about to present its first annual Rotary Mississauga Oktoberfest.
This means that you don't have to travel outside the city to enjoy a German-style Oktoberfest extravaganza.
The event, which is scheduled for Sept. 30, will take place at Hansa Haus (6650 Hurontario St.) and run from 3:00 p.m to 11:30 p.m.
According to the event's Eventbrite page, tickets cost $20 (or $25 at the door) and attendees will receive a free beer mug and other "goodies" while quantities last. As far as food and entertainment go, guests will be free to purchase authentic German eats and beverages (re: beer) and enjoy a live band.
Funds raised at the event will support the club’s charitable foundation that enables large grants to be given to local charities who good work in nearby communities.
Anyone who wants to drink should be sure to bring valid ID. Organizers also say that public safety monitors will be on hand to ensure that everyone is enjoying a "safe environment." Although it's probably best to use public transportation, a DD or an Uber/taxi if you plan to imbibe, teetotalers should note that free parking is available on-site (should the lot be full, guests can access overflow parking spaces across the street).
Ticket purchases can be refunded up to seven days prior to the event, but donations will not be refunded except in extreme circumstances.
