CHS Field to host socially distant Oktoberfest event

It's the work of the same company that hosted Seltzerland in St. Paul this month.

The home of the St. Paul Saints will play host to a massive, social distancing-friendly Oktoberfest event next month.

Oktoberfest in the Outfield will take over CHS Field on Saturday, Oct. 3 and is promising a "bacon and beer picnic like no other."

It's the work of Cannonball Productions, which this past weekend hosted Seltzerland at Phalen Park Golf Course in St. Paul.

The Oktoberfest event will feature a variety of Oktoberfest-inspired dishes including spicy bratwurst with ranch bacon sauerkraut.

With Hormel Foods the main sponsor, bacon will be everywhere, with General Admission and VIP ticket holders getting a complimentary 5-flavor bacon "flight" and a bacon coupon from Hormel.

Naturally, there will also be a range of "autumnal" alcohol to purchase, with VIP ticket holders getting complimentary beer pairings, as well as access to picnic table seating in the outfield.

General Admission holders will have access to high top and barstool seating on the concourse.

The event will be split into two sessions: a brunch event from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., then a Happy Hour session from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

GA tickets cost $15 per person, with VIP tickets $49. VIP tickets must be ordered in groups of 2-4 due to table capacity rules.
