Kool Haus Beirgarten

 

Our team at Bingemans could not let another year go by without an Oktoberfest celebration! We have all been challenged dealing with COVID for over a year, and our goal was to plan a unique Oktoberfest activation that would allow everyone to celebrate, while following COVID protocols to the highest levels possible. The Kool Haus Beirgarten is a unique space for 2021, which is an open air festival behind Kingpin Bowlounge in our massive event square.

Ticketing will be limited to match the COVID requirements and as well respectful of space to all our festgoers. We will have ample service areas to minimize any line ups including a QR code system where guests can order items in advance and pick up when ready with minimal interactions should they wish. Guests can also pre-order food platters for pick up when they arrive.

We are also proud to once again support the Junior Panthers baseball program & 1st Elmira Scouts with fun activities around the festival.

We look forward to raising a Prosit with you!
