WILLKOMEN TO
LAKE HIGHLANDS OKTOBERFEST

Welcome to the premier Oktoberfest in Dallas. This family friendly event brings thousands of people across Dallas - Fort Worth for the good food, good beer and good times. This year's annual event, to be held October 1 at Flag Pole Hill, just north of White Rock Lake, will feature some of the best local bands, plenty of fun for the kids, and delicious restaurant offerings from brats to ice cream. Come out and enjoy restaurant row, the kids entertainment section and jams from Bowling for Soup, Rhymin' N' Stealin', The O's and Calhoun.

 

NEW BITES + BREWS

Come out and enjoy some of the best bites and brews Dallas has to offer. We'll have everything from Brats to Pizza and Hefeweizen to Kolsch. Our goal is to have something for everyone of any age.

NEW MUSIC

This year's lineup is beyond exciting. We have scheduled everything under the sun and into the evening. Headlining this year's event is Bowling for Soup, preceded by Rhymin' N Stealin, The O's and Calhoun.

New LOCATION

Take note that we've moved to Flag Pole Hill north of White Rock Lake. This is one of the best natural concert areas in all of Dallas. There is plenty of green space to spread out and soak up the fun and suds.

Bowling for Soup

"The four-piece from Texas are credited with contributing to the genre ‘punk pop’ and they were keen to remind us that this genre isn’t dead by playing a high energy tribute to other bands such as Blink 182, Green Day and Jimmy Eat World in a medley of some of their most notable hits..."

"They sounded as good as they ever have and the crowd proved just how much they loved the music by singing along so loudly that you could see how moved Jaret was when he let us sing along without him."

- Kerrang Radio

 

 

Rhymin' n' Stealin'

"Rhymin’ N Stealin’ resuscitates audiences with high-energy performances of Beastie Boys favorites.  Unlike the typical tribute band, Rhymin’ N Stealin’ doesn’t ask for nostalgia or remembrance – they show audiences why the Beastie Boys still kick ass right now.  Part intricate homage, part obsession, Rhymin’ N Stealin’ has set itself apart from the tribute band rank and file since forming in 2009.  After selling out their first show at the House of Blues Dallas, Rhymin’ N Stealin’ earned national notoriety by meticulously recreating the Beastie Boys experience, headlining Public & Corporate shows across North America."

The O's

"Easily the best new band of the year, The O's ,with their minimal musical set-up, have created one of the richest sounds of any band I've heard in awhile. This may only be a duo, but there is nothing lacking in their sound. And no, this is not another White Stripes wannabe duo, but rather a country duo that is more reminiscent of Everly Brothers. The live shows are truly awe-inspiring, touching, and fun, all rolled into one melodious package."

- The Ghost of Blind Lemon

 

 

Calhoun

"Every now and then, I wonder if other area bands secretly loathe Calhoun. Not for any petty reasons, but rather, that the core duo of Tim Locke and Jordan Roberts (which has endured since Calhoun's 2004 formation) make lush, irresistibly melodic pop-rock, flecked with hints of alt-country, look so damned easy. Calhoun delivered a stunner with its 2008 sophomore long-player, Falter Waver Cultivate and, not long after it was released, elected to take a year off, much to the chagrin of critics and fans alike."

KUBY's SAUSAGE HOUSE
& EUROPEAN MARKET

"Fans of “authentic German food” need “look no further” than this University Park eatery for “huge” sandwiches, “excellent” potato salad and “top-notch” homemade sausages among other Bavarian essen served for breakfast and lunch daily and for dinner on Friday and Saturday; the no-frills dining room is adjacent to an “awesome” meat market/deli. 
- Zagat review

Urban Crust Pizza

Pizza is the star, and that’s evident by the dome-shaped Renato oven that occupies a prominent spot in the dining room. Burning both gas and wood, it turns out pizzas with reliably crisp, brown-edged crusts. Great toppings, too. One memorably delicious pie had sirloin steak, caramelized onions, Maytag blue cheese, and basil pesto.
- D-Magazine

Food Vendor - One 90 Smoked Meats

ONE 90 Smoked MeatS

Guerra's meats come out of the fire with extreme precision and care — the establishment's name is the owners' idea of the perfect internal temperature for a well-smoked brisket. At the counter, traditional barbecue plates butt up against some of the most refreshing and tasty takes on the barbecue sandwich. If you're into wrapper cheese — the ooey, gooey cheese that melts off of the sandwich and onto the wrapper — One90's barbecue sandwiches are dialed in just right.
- Dallas Observer
