Oktober Feast in Portal, Arizona

I received an email from the Chiricahua Sky Island, Rodeo announcing the upcoming Oktoberfest in Portal.  This is a fun event with lots of good food and activities.

"This year's OKTOBERFEST will be held on Saturday, October 23rd, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. AZ time, in front of the Portal Library and Post Office.  Sponsored by Sew What, this worthwhile fundraiser supports scholarships for local Rodeo and Portal area high school seniors.  Come and enjoy great German food at the CAFE under the sycamore trees, open at 11:00 a.m: bratwurst, cabbage rolls, and delicious salads.  Stop by the BAKE SALE and check out the wonderful cakes, pies, breads, and casseroles, all homemade by our outstanding local cooks.  Check out all sorts of great surprises at the SILENT AUCTION."

The community calendar at has the listing. 

Note:  The times are Arizona time, not New Mexico time (that's 10 - 2 New Mexico time).  Daylight savings time will bring the times in both states back into sync. 


  1. This should be fun they also are selling the new phone books.

  2. Finished the time lapse video taken during the event and it is posted.
