CIA at Copia Oktoberfest
October 14, 2017
Traditional Bavarian fun is supplied by Polkageist West, a live oom-pah band, while your belly is sated by traditional German fare, and your thirst is quenched by delicious beers. We are sold. The event will take place throughout the entire CIA at Copia grounds, so guests will have access to the culinary gardens, the atrium (aka bierhaus!), and the outdoor amphitheater.
Camaraderie, revelry, dirndls, and lederhosen are highly encouraged. Bring the family, enjoy some traditional eats and drink, and soak up the oom-pah-pah music, as you celebrate the end of harvest in Napa Valley.
Both events are free to the public. Food and beverage that relates to the ‘fests will be for sale during each event. Both events are walk-around style throughout the property.
