The Rhinelanders

All are invited to the Town of Port Royal’s annual OktoPRfest celebration on Saturday, Sept. 25, from 11 am – 5 pm. Local chefs, restaurants and food trucks will prepare German-inspired dishes such as brats, pretzels and American food favorites which can be washed down with a variety of craft, imported and domestic beers.

Dark Waters Project

Live musical acts include The Rhinelanders, who will perform from 11 am – 2 pm. The Rhinelanders specialize in fun, German-inspired music, beer drinking songs, the Alp horn (Ricola music) and ballroom dance tunes.

Traveling from Nashville to perform from 2:30 – 5 pm is the Dark Waters Project. The band plays what they like to call “Darkgrass,” a blend of multiple genres influenced by bluegrass and alternative rock.

Other entertainment includes approximately 60 classic vehicles courtesy of the Beaufort Classic Car & Truck Club and a family-fun Kids Zone. In addition, there will be a Lowcountry artisan/craft fair area.

The event takes place on Paris Avenue in the heart of the Old Village of Port Royal. Admission is free. NO PETS. For full details on getting involved in the event as a sponsor, volunteer, attendee or as a vendor, visit
