Bratfest is an Oktoberfest-style party hosted and organized by the graduate students of LPL. It features copious amounts of bratwurst (pork, chicken and veggie), grilled corn, cheesecakes, and beer. Various faculty and staff members usually attend, and students from other departments at Arizona also join in on the festivities.

Typically Bratfest requires some planning and organization beforehand, and this webpage serves to provide both current and archived information on the party. We hope to see you there!
