September 15, 2011 (Girdwood, Alaska) – Alyeska Resort is following the month-long German tradition of celebrating Oktoberfest by hosting three consecutive weekends of food, music and beer from late September to early October. Each weekend’s festivities will highlight a unique style of music, food and draft beer from around the world. The festivals will take place at the Alyeska Daylodge from 4:00 P.M. to 12:00 A.M. on Friday and Saturday. The festivals are family friendly and open to all ages. There is a special festival ticket which includes entry and a filled souvenir stein for $15 per person (21 and over) entry only is $5. Kids ages 12 and under will receive complimentary admission.

To start off the celebration, Oktoberfest is scheduled for September 23 and 24 featuring the live music of Alaska Polka Chips and Alaska Blaskapelle. The Alaska Polka Chips consists of the sister duo Marge and Patti Ford who have played together all over Alaska, throughout the lower 48 and in numerous countries. Every performance is filled with surprises, humor and the best polka dance music. The Anchorage-based Alaska Blaskapelle has 25 members with 12 to 15 musicians playing at a time. The large group dresses in traditional German Lederhosen and plays classic German music in the Bavarian style. The weekend will feature Bavarian delicacies and classical German dishes from top chefs at Alyeska Resort.

The second weekend will be Blues & Brews, scheduled for September 30 and October 1. Anchorage-based Full Tilt will warm up the crowd with their high energy sound including popular covers of American classic rock songs. The weekend headliner, Rebel Blues will take the main stage and bring their blues sound with a hint of rock n’ roll style, playing their most popular songs Quicksand, Do Dat and Mark’s Blues. The Turnagain Armpit will serve Alaskan style food and delicious BBQ.

Rocktoberfest marks the final weekend of festivals and will feature Americana style food and music on October 7 and 8. Opening band Nervis Rex and headliner The Council of Smokers & Drinkers will bring two unique styles of Americana sound to the Daylodge stage.  Local Anchorage band Nervis Rex will perform their ska/rock sounds while The Council of Smokers and Drinkers celebrates with their country, blues and roots combination perfect for dancing.
