Many people have asked what will be happening Sunday at the Houston County Farm Center. Here are the highlights- the Florida Barbecue association will be having their barbecue competition from 10am through 2:30pm with awards on the main stage at approximately 3:30 pm. Meanwhile, at noon we will have an interfaith service on the main stage featuring Raymond Ramsey. Come enjoy his uplifting words of inspiration, accompanied by music from music minister Matt at noon.
Following that, we have worship and praise music, gospel and more until the awards ceremony. Plus, inside we have the Festhaus with polka music from 12:30-2:30 and beer sales from 1-4. Many beers will be half priced during this time! Plus, there will be shopping with vendors, great food and the man cave with TV’s showing NFL games from noon-4.
It’s not too hard to learn to Polka, and you may find several people willing to teach you. At the very least, you can learn the “Chicken Dance” and get out on the dance floor at PorktoberQue. We have polka bands all three days of PorktoberQue, September 23-25 at the Houston County Farm Center in Dothan, Alabama!
Every year, PorktoberQue has a differently designed mug or beer stein for sale in the Fest Haus by the Biergarten. This year, we went with an Oktoberfest-style dimpled half liter glass stein with a combination of the dated festival logo and the Sam Adams Oktoberfest logo on the front. Steins will be $12 each including your first draft beer. Draft refills in your souvenir mug will be discounted (only on draft in the FestHaus) and you can pick from any of the draft beers we have (not just the sponsor beer, Sam Adams Oktoberfest.) The beer steins are very limited (only 200 will be sold) so make sure you get yours early, as we expect to sell out again quickly! Last year, we sold out of steins in just under 2 hours. A photo of the beer mug we will have this year is below. We filled it up with beer and tested it out to make sure it works! (it does!) Prost! (cheers)
We’ve given away 12 tickets to PorktoberQue already through our weekly drawings. PorktoberQue is Dothan’s Oktoberfest, September 23-25, 2016 at the Houston County Farm Center in Dothan, Alabama.

Our house band for the past three years, the Polka Dots, will again play both days of PorktoberQue. They keep the Festhaus going, and help make PorktoberQue an Oktoberfest with their polka music. We hope all of the “Dots” will be in town again this year, but there may be one or two additions to the group this year. PorktoberQue is September 25-26 at the Houston County Farm Center in Dothan, Alabama.
The 2015 PorktoberQue will be held on Friday September 25 and Saturday September 26 at the Houston County Farm Center in Dothan, AL. Entry forms for teams and judges applications will soon be available here so please check back. PorktoberQue is Alabama’s Oktoberfest and sanctioned KCBS barbecue competition held the last weekend in October (the traditional weekend to celebrate Oktoberfest)
