They look cool and they keep your beer colder longer, plus they are the best way to have your beer be green without changing the color!
  • Food vendors are so good that many sold out last year before Oktoberfest was over! There’s variety, but the one thing they have in common is that they all taste great!
  • KIDS’ ZONE will have plenty of fun and games for all young ages. 2nd Street is filled with the Car Show, food vendors, informative exhibits, and interesting non-profits to assure your enjoyment outside of the Biergarten.
Oktoberfest is for our community. The purpose is to raise funds for kids programs and charitable institutions through our community enjoying the essence of who we are. We love music, art, and being part of where we live. Enjoy Oktoberfest #44!
