Ober Gatlinburg’s OktOBERfest kicks off September 22

GATLINBURG, TN. — Ober Gatlinburg is celebrating autumn with a fantastic festival featuring Bavarian-Style food, bier and music. OktOBERfest returns to its Gatlinburg-style roots with 38 days of merrymaking from September 22 through October 29, 2017.


Main Event is consistently ranked the “best place for parties,” thanks to its distinctive “Eat. Bowl. Play.” experience. From hassle-free birthday parties to company team-building events to an evening out enjoying a great meal and some friendly competition, Main Event offers more ways to have fun than you can pack into one visit.

“We’re excited to introduce Main Event’s distinctive dining and entertainment experience to the people of Knoxville,” said Charlie Keegan, CEO of Main Event Entertainment. “We’re inviting the entire community to come out and enjoy some delicious food, play an assortment of incredible games and maybe even try something completely new — like our high ropes adventure course with zip line or the World’s Largest Pac-Man. We’ve got it all in our beautifully designed new entertainment center.”

The 50,000-square-foot entertainment center was built from the ground up with Main Event’s new design prototype, which features 22 ice-white lanes with multi-color LED lighting and luxury seating, laser tag, billiards, shuffleboard, a high-ropes adventure course with zip line and a games gallery featuring more than 100 of the latest interactive and virtual video games.

Whether you’re looking for a chef-inspired casual dining experience in a full-service American-fare restaurant, specialty pizzas in an Italian-themed cafe or handcrafted cocktails in a high-energy bar surrounded by big screen TVs, Main Event’s chefs and bartenders offer great hospitality. The center offers fully equipped private meeting spaces with the latest audio-visual technology, full-service catering, free Wi-Fi and everything else essential to hosting corporate meetings, team-building exercises, holiday parties and other gatherings both large and small.

The new center has added more than 150 jobs to the community.

The Knoxville Main Event is open Monday, Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. - 2 a.m., and Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to midnight.
