Avonmore Oktoberfest next month at fairgrounds

CORNWALL, Ontario – The 21st annual “Avonmore Oktoberfest” will be held on Saturday, Sept. 7 in the Roxborough Agricultural Super Structure Building behind North Stormont Place on the Fairgrounds.

The doors will open at 4 p.m. with an authentic German buffet meal from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Music will be provided by “Edelweiss” from Montreal. All tickets must be purchased in advance, as there is a limited number available.

Tickets are $25 each and are on sale at Scotiabank locations in Avonmore, Chesterville, Cornwall and Maxville as well as Barkley’s Store in Avonmore.

Again this year Scotiabank is matching the proceeds of tickets sold in their locations with their matching funds program.

Proceeds of the evening will help the Roxborough Agricultural Society, host of the Avonmore Fair, with maintenance and other projects on the grounds on Fairview Drive in the village of Avonmore.

The Avonmore Oktoberfest draws people from all over eastern Ontario and western Quebec, and has become a late-summer tradition in the area.

A crowd favourite each year is the wide variety of desserts, which are included with the meal.

For more information or to reserve your tickets, you may call 613-538-2321.
