Mountain West Hard Cider and Red Rock Brewery will be celebrating Oktoberfest together again on 4th West this year. The celebration, officially titled “4th West Oktoberfest,” runs the weekend of Saturday, September 30th to Sunday, October 1st at 425 North 400 West in Salt Lake City, Utah, and features Mountain West’s hard ciders and Red Rock’s craft beers. Although only those of legal drinking age will be allowed to consume these alcoholic beverages, all ages are invited to join in on the fun.
4th West Oktoberfest will include live music from local artists Triggers and Slips, Tony Holiday and the Velvetones, Pixie and The Partygrass Boys, Crook and The Bluff, and Michelle Moonshine.
In-between sets, DJ Justin Godina will be spinning tunes. “We have a great music lineup for this weekend that includes artists with different styles of music and of course, they are all local,” says Jeff Carleton, co-owner of Mountain West Hard Cider.
Local food trucks Shylo’s Mobile Cafe, Gerlach’s, and Normal Club Ice Cream, are scheduled to serve at the event. Ruby-mosas, a variation on mimosas based on Mountain West Hard Cider’s flagship cider Ruby, as well as a signature cocktail from Salt City Vodka will both be offered. The RoHa Brewing Project will also be serving their products during 4th West Oktoberfest.
Local community partners will be in attendance, such as Yelp SLC, City Weekly, Utah Stories, 4th West Apartments, Fizzbloom, Giant Taste & Skinny Waist, Indulge Eats, Paloma’s Skin Essentials, and SLC Bike Share, The Green Urban Lunch Box, among others.
Games such as Cornhole, giant Jenga, and ring toss provide even more entertainment for festival-goers. And a children’s craft table stocked with coloring pages and crayons is available exclusively for the young ones.
Due to overwhelming success during past 4th West Fest events, Mountain West Cider and Red Rock Brewery are looking forward to many more successful collaborative events in years to come. 4th West Oktoberfest will be the third event jointly organized by the two companies.
General one-day admission for the event is $7 and includes a limited edition mug. Children under the age of 12 are admitted free to the event. Non-drinkers will be offered a $5 admission.
