Blake Sherriff, Nadene Van Rooyen, Breanna Pinkerton and Damien Pinkerton gear up for Oktoberfest. Picture: SCOTT GELSTONORGANISERS of Oktoberfest Launceston still have a long way to go to get their inaugural event up and running.
As of Monday, 79 tickets had been sold, well short of the 2000 that will need to be sold by the end of the month if the event at Aspect Tamar Valley Resort is to go ahead on October 9 and 10 in the Swiss-style village at Grindelwald.
But resort general manager Damien Pinkerton was confident that ticket sales would quickly rise for the beer festival.
‘‘About 15 years ago, they used to have Grindelfest here and we thought it would be nice to bring back an event such as that to the Tamar Valley, and this is the perfect venue,’’ he said.
‘‘It will be a unique event [for the area] with a fun atmosphere.’’
Tickets cost $20 a day and include a free, unfilled beer stein and entry to beer tent and free bus transfers to and from Launceston to Tamar Valley Resort. Tickets are available from www .eventbrite南京夜网419论坛/e/oktoberfest-launceston-tickets-17793651290.
