Teri Riberich has spearheaded the event every year.   The purpose of the event is to bring people into Harrison and bring the community together. It also helps extend Harrison’s season. The historic and quaint backdrop of downtown Harrison and Lake Coeur d’Alene make for the idyllic Oktoberfest setting as well.

In addition to breweries showcasing their craft beers, there will be live music, food and children’s activities. The event will take place rain or shine. Vendors interested in a space and anyone who wants to help volunteer with the event should call 582-2341.

Coinciding with the 10th anniversary, there will be an open house at the Harrison Fire Station as part of the events to commemorate the fire that destroyed the early town of Harrison 100 years ago. The fire station is celebrating its 30-year anniversary.
