No surprise that all our numerous big stage Oktoberfest events for 2020
have been cancelled due to Covid-19 along with a temporary closing of
The Berghoff Restaurant. However, the Alpine Thunder team has
an Oktoberfest schedule with the Edelweiss, and Hofbrauhaus, and a
scattering of other venues.

Auf die Gesundheit! – Stay Well!
Prost Oktoberfest 2020!
The Pandemic cancelled all our performances starting in the middle of March.
We are just beginning to perform in the outside beer gardens that started
in the last weekend of May. Beautiful weather greeted us for the entire
weekend. We will update our Facebook page and Shows section of our web site
with performance status through June and the future.
Alpine Thunder does an Oktoberfest celebration at McCormick place for the Bavarian based Sixt S.E. Company. Sixt S.E. provides rental car services in many countries throughout the world.
Alpine Thunder team member, Jim Langenberg, has added a new valve alphorn to his performances. As we know there were only three of these made by a German instrument company. We have given the new alphorn a knickname: The Rare Tyrolean Mountain Horn.
Swiss based company Tornos will have their grand opening in the Chicagoland area on April 30th. Alpine Thunder will be providing an Alphorn Thunder trio for the event.
Alpine Thunder will participate in the 10 day Germany Week at the Daley Plaza hosted by the Chicago German American Chamber of Commerce. The theme of the Alpine Thunder cultural music program is A Musical Tour Through Germany.
