The 6th Annual Swine & Stein Octoberfest is a trifecta of beer, food, and music. A beer tasting will showcase the incredible diversity and quality of Maine craft beers. In celebration of local Maine agriculture, fine restaurants and local food vendors from Gardiner and across the state will serve up a variety of interesting culinary dishes featuring local pork along with other quality menu items. Adding to the festivities, a line-up of favorite and emerging Maine bands will entertain throughout the day. A unique array of games and activities, with prizes will encourage mingling and general merriment. Don’t miss out on this outdoor, urban brew fest in the setting of one of Maine’s most charming main streets!
In addition to beer, pork, and music, there will be a number of ongoing activities, including a chicken fling, frozen T-shirt race, and the 4th annual Maine rock, paper, scissors championship. The Annual Gardiner Beard & Mustache Competition will also be returning for its second year. This family-friendly event offers pumpkin carving and other children’s activities. Expect entertainment for all ages, music of all types while re-acquainting yourself with businesses throughout our historic Downtown.
