Guglhupf to Host 4th Annual Rocktoberfest

When the weather turns cooler and the harvest arrives, everyone can share in the German festival best known for sausages, beer and baked goods.

Guglhupf Café in Durham, NC will host its annual Rocktoberfest party on Saturday, September 28 from 4pm to 10pm.  Now in its 4th year, this family-friendly “Oktoberfest-with-a-twist” features live music, delicious German street food and specialty beer on tap!

Originating in Munich, Germany in the early 1800’s, Oktoberfest is now celebrated around the world. Here in Durham, Guglhupf’s German-born owner Claudia Cooper brings an innovative spin to the festivities at this contemporary European café.

Traditional German street fare will be cooked and served outside on the patio, which will be decorated with colorful banners and long tables for family-style dining. The grill will sizzle with house-made Bratwurst, Weisswurst and rôtisserie chicken.  A la carte sides include German potato salad, cucumber salad, braised red cabbage and Sauerkraut.  Also on the menu:  Zwiebelkuchen (a single-crust pie of steamed onions, cream and caraway seeds) and freshly-baked soft Brezels.  And for your sweet tooth, indulge in Guglhupf’s Berliner doughnuts, oozing with raspberry jam and coated with granulated sugar. Or choose from apple fritters and Strudl with ice cream – all house-made at Guglhupf’s adjoining bakery.  And of course….sample specialty draft brews from Hacker Pschorr, Spaten, Franziskane and Gaffel, along with wines by the glass.

Three bands will perform live on the patio:  The Oompah Trio (traditional Bavarian tunes); D-Town; and Pipe.  So make sure to dig out your Dirndl dresses and Lederhosen for the party!  And don’t miss out on face-painting from the talented Character Paints – for both kids and adults alike.

Reservations are not needed and there is no cover charge.  Guglhupf is located at 2706 Durham-Chapel Hill Blvd, Durham, NC.  Go online or call 919.401.2600 for further information.
