Pregame Festivals


The Carolina RailHawks will be hosting the 4th Annual RailHawks Homebrew Soktoberfest on Saturday, September 26th. The pre-game festivities will begin at 5:30 pm at WakeMed Soccer Park and will run until 7:15 pm, followed by the RailHawks NASL match against Ottawa Fury FC.

The RailHawks Homebrew Soktoberfest is the RailHawks take on a German Oktoberfest, but with a focus on local craft and home brewers. A combination of German-themed food samples and traditional North Carolina fare, live music presented by ReverbNation, local craft beer, and homebrewed beer, Soktoberfest is a one-of-a-kind event that you can’t miss. 

Admittance for the 4th Annual Homebrew Soktoberfest will be free of charge, but donation jars will be set out for anyone wishing to support the Spread Your Wings Foundation.

A large number of local brewers from all over North Carolina will be sampling their beer for free and will put their homebrew to the test, as one brewer will walk away as the Homebrew Soktoberfest Champion after a fan vote.

The first 200 guests in attendance will enjoy complimentary food samples provided by Firewurst, The Chef’s Academy, and Passanante's.  The Backyard Bistro food truck will be onsite with traditional barbeque fare available for purchase, and beer and wine will also be available for purchase courtesy of RA Jeffreys, Adams Vineyards, and Lonerider. There will also be complimentary samples of Crown Royal Regal Apple tasting by North American Wine & Spirits. Enjoy the party grooves of Durty Dub provided by ReverbNation.
