As Foolproof Brewing Company in Pawtucket approaches their 10th year of business, so marks the 10th celebration of their favorite pastime, Augtoberfest. Augtoberfest, the massive Pawtucket parking lot party, returns on Saturday, August 13th. This year the tickets to attend Augtoberfest at 241 Grotto Avenue will only be $10.
“Summer in Rhode Island is worth celebrating. We’ve had years where we have had to turn away people for not having tickets, and cost was sometimes a barrier to entry. The $10 ticket price this year avoids that. I want everyone to feel included, and welcome to stay and join in the fun.”, says John Windle, the Foolproof taproom manager. Rest assured, all the amenities previously available with tickets will still be available a la carte, with t-shirts and steins available for purchase.
What you can expect at Augtoberfest this year is live music by The Pogs and Kickin Brass Band and a food truck lineup consisting of Cluck Truck, La Costa, and Top Dogs. Drawing inspiration from Oktoberfest, there will also be a stein hoisting contest, among other contests, to win prizes. Branded beer steins will be available for purchase to get into the spirit of Augtoberfest. If you don’t get a spot in one of the tents or air conditioned taproom, feel free to bring your own lawn chair and post up in the parking lot. The $10 ticket price includes one drink ticket.
Complimentary entry is granted to designated drivers and Foolproof will also be offering a discounted Uber code to make sure everyone gets home safely.
Aside from the name play on Oktoberfest, Augtoberfest the festival is named after its namesake beer from the brewery. Foolproof’s Augtoberfest is a German-style Marzen Lager. Augtoberfest will be available on draft and in cans to go starting the first week in August.
