With live music, wiener dog races, and beer, beer, beer, the Four Peaks Oktoberfest at Tempe Town Lake is one of the events we look forward to most each October. For obvious reasons, the celebration is cancelled this year, but we’ve put together a virtual version of the festival that more than makes up for its loss.

Performances from German oompah bands and local legends? Yep, we’ll have those. Educational seminars covering German beer and food? Those will be broadcast as well. How about an Oktoberfest-themed trivia competition, a virtual chicken dance, and tips on winning your next stein-holding contest? Ja, all that and more will be part of this five-hour celebration. Hosted by Dan Bickley of Arizona Sports, the entire festival will be free to view via Facebook Live.
