Oktoberfest is returning to Burien this weekend, beginning Thursday, Sept. 24th and continuing through Sunday Sept. 27th, with live entertainment, crafts, food, a carnival with rides, and of course, Burien’s own “Yodeling Dominatrix,” Manuela Horn.

What? You didn’t know we have our own Yodeling Dominatrix? Here’s a new clip of her “cooking”:

(BTW, we’re actually somewhat responsible for getting her booked at this event, so you’d better show up, ‘cuz she’s HIGHLY entertaining, not to mention tall – 6’2″! – and a professional yodeler to boot; you may have even seen her on “America’s Got Talent”!)

Here are the event details:

Burien’s Oktoberfest will feature much more than just a Yodeling Dominatrix and beer gardens (although there will plenty of that) – this year there will also be lots of food, arts and crafts, as well as a carnival with rides, and live entertainment.

BTB Advertiser Elliott Bay Brewhouse & Pub will also be holding their own festival, with an outdoor beer garden and live music from 2pm to 9pm with the Mellifluous Cephyres, then ramping up with Jonathan Kimball and capping the evening with Sunderlyn. They’ll be serving their own specialty beers brewed on site, and will also be selling bratwurst and other appropriate foods.

Hoist a pint of suds or a glass of wine in true Octoberfest fashion at one of two outdoor beer and wine gardens. Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub will be serving from Friday night through Sunday in front of the restaurant at 435 SW 152nd Street. Mick’s will dish up live entertainment Friday night through Sunday, plus German menu specials and outdoor barbecue Saturday and Sunday.

Shop the festival’s 50-plus booths for unique arts and crafts, plus tasty eats such as Mexican and Hawaiian fare, hamburgers, hotdogs and more. Some vendors from the Burien Farmers Market will also be on hand.

Also on Saturday morning join other walkers for an easy 2-mile stroll to help Hospitality House’s shelter for homeless women (see our previous coverage here), located in Burien. Dogs on a leash are welcome.

Register for the eight annual StreetWalk for the Homeless at 9:30 a.m. Sept. 26 for $20 at SW 152nd Street and Fifth Place SW at Burien Town Square. The walk starts at 10 a.m. Afterward there will be a prize drawing for walkers who raise the most money through sponsorships. For sponsorship forms, call (206) 243-1597.

Sponsored by the Discover Burien Association, the event will center on Burien Town Square at Southwest 152nd Street and Fifth Place Southwest in downtown Burien. Discover Burien is a nonprofit organization that works on the economic development and marketing of the city.

For more information, call (206) 941-7199 or go online to www.discoverburien.com.

As for Manuela Horn, Burien’s Yodeling Dominatrix, she’s also a professional actress and multi-talented performer who has done gigs for Teatro Zinzanni and many others. She’ll yodel her way into your beer-stained heart on Saturday from 5:30pm to 6pm on the main stage.

(Oh, and look for us there as well – we’ll be in our B-Town Blog t-shirts at a booth, or perhaps even a beer garden or two…)
