Taking place on the Pittman Lawn of at the Westin Kierland in Scottsdale on Sat., Oct. 15 from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., the festival features a modern twist on a traditional Oktoberfest gathering, with a western theme.

The country-rock group Mogollon Band is also slated to entertain attendees. Mogollon is one of the world’s premier country rock entertainment groups. The band began in 1979 out of the Mogollon Rim country of Heber-Overgaard in Arizona. With five recorded albums and songs featured on the Billboard Hot 100 music industry record chart, Mogollon Band delivers a fun, high energy, interactive performance that audiences of all ages love. Special guest singer Donny Grubb and fiddle player Patrick Clark (who toured with Big & Rich) will join Mogollon Band for the festivities. A lively deejay will also keep guest moving on the dance floor throughout the night.

Take a whirl on the mechanical bull, show off your skills at corn hole, and be on the lookout for a fun photo booth and unexpected entertainment along the way. This one-of-a-kind experience will keep you entertained and boot-scoot boogie-ing throughout the night!
