I spent the weekend setting this up for the coming weekend and I think it will be a blast. If your interested in smithing or metal work this is a great place to hone your skills and meet some new people.


Set up crew at the spot Jimmy passed away last year.

Pre-registration is required.

There is a $30 per person penalty for all registrations received after September 28th.

It is very difficult to plan Oktoberfest without knowing how many people are coming. So if you plan to attend please pre-register to insure you will have a place. Space is limited and people trying to register on-site may be turned away.

You may pre register by printing the registration form and mailing it or you may register online using a credit card. Simply enter the name of each of your party and click the “add to cart” button. Do this for each person you wish to register.

Your payment will be processed through Pay Pal. You do not need a PayPal account to register, just any major credit card.

You will be prompted to enter the names for your conference badges on the final payment page. Please indicate which names are full registrants and which are non-participants.

Full Registration $85

Non-Participating Guest $55

You must be a CBA member to attend. You can join or renew your membership here:
