Oktoberfest includes a fully covered Main Stage viewing area and an expanded Craft Beer tent with big-screen TVs for all the weekend football action. The ACCO Brands FamilyFest provides free art activities for the kids, from noon – 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
The annual Oktoberfest Preview Party, presented by Premier Health, takes place on the Friday of Oktoberfest weekend, 7:00 - 11:00 p.m. Guests enjoy complimentary draft beer and wine, live entertainment and great socializing in a casual, less-crowded atmosphere.This year's Preview Party will feature music by The Menus!
