As the annual host of spring training for the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies, Salt River Fields at Talking Stick brings a bit of the Old World to the desert with an Oktoberfest replete with a feast of cuisine, giveaways, and live music from local and international bands. Germanic gastronomes can enjoy 13 hours of merriment and revelry and bask in the frothy ambiance of 11 different beers while dancing to live music from bands such as Young Dubliners, Hans Olson, and Peppermint James. Food, including preserved jams, and beverages abound to please Bavarian palates and fill lederhosen. Live cooking demonstrations, bocce ball, and giveaways entertain Teutonic partiers as they simultaneously take in sweeping views of some of Arizona’s most impressive mountain ranges. Proceeds from Oktoberfest will go to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
