LAHAINA – The eighth annual Oktoberfest will be held on Saturday, Sept. 28, at 6 p.m. at the historic Pioneer Inn in Lahaina. Hosted by the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunrise, the event will fund vocational scholarships for deserving Maui County residents.

Grilled Brockwurst, specially ordered for the event, will be served over beer-braised red cabbage with Guinness mustard. A ginger snap sauce will accompany the Sauerbrate, which is a German type of Pot Roast. Hot German Potato Salad, Sauerkraut, Potato Pancakes with Sour Cream and Green Onions, Apple Sauce and German Chocolate Cake round out the menu. The no-host bar will feature Spaten Oktoberfest and other popular beer, wine and cocktail selections.

Everyone is encouraged to dress up in German attire. A costume contest will be held with a $50 gift certificate as the prize for most authentic costume.

The Oompah Band will keep the party hopping with the chicken dance, the beer barrel polka, waltzes and popular drinking songs. The band members are all professional musicians who have been playing together for 20 years.

Sizzling items on the silent auction table will include some great values as well as those ever-popular restaurant gift cards. One-hundred percent of the silent auction proceeds will fund vocational scholarships, which includes training for aspiring farmers, chefs, welders, carpenters and other trades.

Tickets are $50 each. Please purchase online at www.lahainasunriserotary.org, or call Skeeter at 870-9813. There is a limited number of tickets, and the event has sold out the last few years.
