Break out your lederhosen and dirndl skirts because Chattanooga Market’s 16th annual Oktoberfest is this weekend in First Tennessee Pavilion.

The market expands its one-day event into two fun-filled days for this festival of German culture that draws locals as well as regional visitors.

Visitors will find an array of German traditions: brats, a biergarten featuring more than 99 local and seasonal craft brews, polka music from the Wurstbrats and even a chicken dance or two.

The festival includes a crowning of Mr. and Ms. Chattanooga Oktoberfest on Saturday evening. Entrants should report to the market’s Carter Street stage by 6:30 p.m.

Contestants will parade before the live audience, who will decide winners by popular applause. The emcees will have final voting rights and crown the winners about 7 p.m.

Then everyone is invited to join the beer-drinking, chicken-dancing party on the front festival patio until Oktoberfest ends Saturday at 8 p.m. Radio personality Jason Walker will serve as party host.

Sunday’s market will add one hour to close at 5 p.m. instead of 4 o’clock. The Wurstbrats will again be playing.
