OKTEENERFEST 2017: Oktoberfest
September 14-17 in the Alpine village of Helen, GA!

REGISTER HERE

This year we travel to the Alpine village of Helen, GA during the town's 47th annual Oktoberfest celebrations! While we experience traditional Bavarian festivities and cuisine from oompah bands and lederhosen to hot pretzels and German bier, our Porsche 914s will feel as though they have traveled back to their homeland! So mark your calendars and be sure to join other 914 owners for some fantastic driving, plenty of socializing, a bit of showing off, and a truckload of give-aways in a unique setting that you won't want to miss.

Join the Okteenerfest mailing list or LIKE us on Facebook for quickest access to information as it becomes available.

In addition to the driving, Okteenerfest features plenty of good eating, an awards ceremony, tons of give-aways from the most awesome vendors, a Peoples Choice Car Show, and some of the nicest people you will ever meet gathered in a single place.

Registration includes:

· Thursday evening snack/beverages
· Friday driving tour
· Friday lunch at Jake Raby’s shop
· Saturday entry to Peoples Choice Car Show
· Saturday evening awards banquet dinner
· Chance to win some great trophies
· Tickets for a chance to win some AWESOME door prizes
· Event T-Shirt
· Lifetime of memories, meeting new friends, and a chance to bond with your 914


The Helendorf River Inn is our host hotel (33 Munich Strasse, Helen, GA 30545 Phone: (800) 445-2271)
We have reserved a block of 25 Standard Rooms, 22 Riverfront Balcony Rooms and 8 Patio Rooms for our group for the nights of September 14, 15 and 16, 2017. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/yellowsleep[1].gif)
You MUST mention you are with either Okteenerfest or the 914 club
  • Standard Rooms that do not overlook the river and involve stairs will be $114.00 per night plus tax.
  • Riverfront Balcony Rooms with elevator accessibility will be $139.00 per night plus tax.
  • Patio Level Rooms will be $149.00 per night plus tax.
  • The Helendorf requires one night's lodging as a deposit at the time reservations are made.
  • Cancellation period would be 10 days prior to arrival in order for the deposit to be fully refundable.
The rates are a bit higher than we are used to but Okteenerfest is being held during the town's annual Oktoberfest celebration and these rates are a substantial discount over their normal rates.
The venue and festive atmosphere should more than make up for the extra cost! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_flagge6.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/chowtime.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beer3.gif)
NB: The block of rooms AND OUR PREFERRED RATE will be held until August 1. After that, the rooms will be release to the public and the rate will revert back to their rack rate for everyone who books after August 1. So register and book as soon as you are able.

We should definitely get 50+ cars... just not sure the owners will all be on this site to PM you (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif)

That would be cool if it could be organized.
Generally, folks driving in from a particular region will try to meet up and caravan in together. Makes for a fun drive to and from the event. I see no reason why Atlanta area teeners couldn't do the same if they work it out.

I like this idea!
William and I may do this.
Looking at the numbers it is only 52 miles longer
but only 24 minutes longer.
It might be worth it.
John
May need to park a trailer though.

You'll leave me far behind. My car won't go 130 MPH... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/busted_cop.gif) But AutoAtlanta is on my way and it would be nice to drive in with others...

As of this evening, the count is:
Attendees = 82
914s = 50

If you're on Facebook, I have set up an "event" for Okteenerfest. Check it out, share it, like it, etc and mark whether you will be attending.

We are just 2 dozen shy of last year's attendance numbers and it isn't even July yet (IMG:style_emoticons/default/clap56.gif)

Another record year with 123 attendees and 67 914s (IMG:style_emoticons/default/clap56.gif)

If you are near Helen GA on September 16, come by early in the day to view all the 914s at the car show segment of the event. Starts at 9:14 and will run til noon.
