If you’ve subscribed to the press releases from Circuit of The Americas (CoTA), you no doubt have learned about the variety of Fan Fest happenings in downtown Austin. I posted some introductory info here.
Well, there is more… But first we need to talk about what we are dubbing the FIRST “Unofficial” event of the F1 race weekend events, & it starts 1 month prior to the actual race weekend (that’s 2 months from today!). It’s Wild Bubba’s Octoberfest, his 4th in a series of Meet, Greet & Eat casual get-togethers for area & regional Formula 1 race fans. Here’s information on 2 of these prior events, W.B.’s M.G.& E.#2 & W.B.’s M.G.& E.#3…
Here’s what Wild Bubba (aka, Wyman Gilliam) has to say:
It’s time for another Meet, Greet, & Eat! This free event is about a mile east of the Circuit of the Americas and is open to everyone. Expect plenty of grassroots US Grand Prix fans and others who are excited about F1 in Austin!
- Hosted by Wild Bubba himself and AustinRaceEvents.com, The Unofficial Austin Grand Prix Social Calendar.
- Wild Bubba’s Octoberfest will take place at Wild Bubba’s Wild Game Grill about 1 month before the US Grand Prix.
- Live music and free food in the outdoor “Tilke Biergarten.”
- This is the fourth “Meet, Greet, and Eat” event, organized and attended by dedicated local F1 fans. Visitors are welcome to join!
- The restaurant is located less than 1 mile east of the Circuit of the Americas and decorated floor-to-ceiling in Formula 1™ paraphernalia.
- Extra parking will be available.
For a much broader view of all the important social (& otherwise) race events, here’s a timely social events calendar resource for F1 related activities around Austin – it’s AustinRaceEvents.com – The Unofficial Grand Prix Social Calendar.
Here’s what Austin Race Events says:
Wild Bubba’s upcoming Octoberfest will be the equivalent of the F1 Paddock Club “Before Party”! Yes, it will be 1 month in advance of the actual running of the Austin F1 USGP, but it WILL be THE event for local/regional folk to get amped up about the racing/social event that is Formula 1. All the local players will be there promoting their part in this event. You will NOT want to miss this!
