The third weekend of September in Olds has the community putting on their Bavarian Best with the annual Oldstoberfest Rodeo & Biergarten!
Merging Bavarian culture with our western prairie heritage it is an atmosphere one must truly experience! The community comes together from all sectors – private, public and not-for-profit – to welcome visitors to the community with typical “Olds Fashioned Hospitality”.
Rodeo action takes place mid to late afternoons both Friday and Saturday, with concerts kicking off the evening fun at 8 pm. This year, April Wine headlines the Classic Rock concert on Friday evening, while Dan Davidson & Eric Ethridge take the stage on Saturday. All the action is hosted at the Olds Regional Exhibition Grounds in Uptowne Olds.
From 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, the Picket Fence Market preludes the action at the infield. Stop by the Cow Palace to do some shopping before taking in the action and enjoying your downtime in the beer gardens later that day.
And of course, shops and restaurants in Olds are open for your expanded shopping experience.
Come enjoy the festivities in Olds September 13 & 14!
