One of the most popular festivals in downtown Greer, the Greer State Bank Greer Station Oktoberfest presented by Warsteiner is coming up October 1! The festival features German oompah bands, lots of German foods, and of course, German beer!

Not only is the Greer State Bank Greer Station Oktoberfest centered around German themes, it is embracing local artists and celebrating their creative works. Local artists will be displaying their creative pieces all day in downtown Greer. Work on display includes everything from oil paintings, ceramics, photography, woodwork, jewelry and much more. Festival organizers are encouraging people to come and support these artists and delight in each unique piece.
The official festival beer is provided by Warsteiner, Germany's largest privately owned brewery. Warsteiner will be serving Oktoberfest, Pilsner, Dunkel and Konig Ludwig Weissbier. Warsteiner will be featured at two locations within the festival – the corner of Randall and Trade Street and the corner of Victoria and Trade Street.
