Broussard's Brings Oktoberfest to the French Quarter
by Erica Boni
Oktoberfest will be missing one of its major players in the city this year as the social organization with the official New Orleans German organization's continued exile in Jefferson Parish. Luckily, Broussard’s has added a second day of events to their third annual French Quarter Octoberfest in an attempt to fill the void left by the end of the Orleans Deutsches Haus.
Beginning this Saturday from noon until nine the restaurant will be transformed into a German beer garden. For a ten-dollar entry fee guests will have access to grill stations serving up bratwursts, porkbelly and shanks. Apple strudel will be served for dessert and of course there will be at least 8 different types of beer at the cash bar. Two bands will be present playing Bavarian music throughout both days and the festivities are expected to bring hundreds of guests to the seasonal celebration of meat, booze and all things German!
The Deutches Haus has provided support for German immigrants in New Orleans since its foundation in 1928, so don't think they're stopping the chicken dance just because their longtime Lower Mid-City home was in the way of the new LSU-VA Medical Center.
The organization's rumored move back to Orleans Parish remains in limbo, so the annual Oktoberfest celebration will once again be held in the Rivertown section of Kenner this year. The fest, featuring a German band, plenty of schnitzel and other Bavarian delicacies and weiner dog racing, is slated for Fridays and Saturdays from Oct. 12-27.
