Outdoor Dining with a Show at Oktoberfest
Highlighting the 2020 Oktoberfest are “Outdoor Dining with a Show” experiences Sept. 26-27 on the Air Products Town Square at SteelStacks where guests can listen to German-style music while enjoying a menu that features offerings like a loaded potato pancake covered in corned beef brisket, fried sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and Rueben-style dressing, and Schweinshaxe (roasted pork shank) served over browned butter spaetzle and cabbage. Guests can finish it all off with apple strudel from Mattie’s Strudel Haus and ice cream from the Bethlehem Dairy Store.
Seating on the Town Square is by reservation only with tables good for up to four people in the same party. Two seating sessions – 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and 2-4 p.m. – will be offered both days. Table reservation price is $10 and ArtsQuest Members can make reservations starting September 9, 10 a.m., while the public can make reservations starting Sept. 11, 10 a.m. Guests must wear facemasks both indoors and outdoors unless eating and drinking and all CDC, state and city health & safety guidelines are in effect.
There are currently no events scheduled. Please view the full calendar for all upcoming events!
How it works:
In order to maintain proper social distancing and provide a safe dining experience for all, we are offering limited seatings, every 15 minutes, throughout the evening.
- You can reserve one table that seats up to four people (tables cannot be combined and larger parties need to make multiple reservations and will have to be seated in groups of 4).
- There’s a $10 minimum per person.
- Yes, you still need to bring a mask. No, you don’t need to wear it at your table (keep reading for all the super fun safety guidelines listed below).
- Yes! You’ll be able to enjoy your favorite adult beverages with dinner (we recommend the new beer “Flight,” from our friends at Yuengling).
- No outside food or drink is allowed… because that’s how restaurants work.
Health and Safety Guidelines
For the health and safety of all diners, staff, and volunteers – and in accordance with the guidelines of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the CDC – all guests are required to adhere to the following health and safety guidelines while dining with us:
- Please self-monitor your personal health and stay home if you are exhibiting any symptoms. In case you haven’t already committed them to memory (is that just us who did that?), symptoms include but are not limited to fever/chills, persistent cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, muscle pain, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea/vomiting/diarrhea (CDC symptoms).
- If you begin to feel unwell during your visit, please remove yourself immediately.
- Maintain social distancing of 6’ from people outside your party at all times.
- Masks are required to be worn at all times while traveling through common areas of the town square and the building (to the restroom). While you are seated at your assigned table, the mask requirement is lifted (obviously so you can enjoy your food and beverages)
- Any patron not adhering to these policies will be asked to put their mask on or leave the premises.
