I would have liked to get a T-shirt that said Oktoberfest on it. The only shirts they had were ones that said Old Town.

It can get pretty crowded, so claim a seat fast! Definitely do the Groupon deal as opposed to buying a ticket at the door because $20 is a lot of money for a mug and only 3 tickets (1 beer).

About This Deal

Chefs give German food its signature heartiness by inflating every sausage casing with a thundering nine-minute aria. Feast like a valkyrie with this Groupon.

$20 for Two Tickets to Old Town Oktoberfest (Up to $40 Value)

  • Two wristbands for entrance on both festival days
  • Two 12-ounce souvenir mugs
  • Six food-and-drink tickets

Starting at 6 p.m. on Friday, October 5, and at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 6, revelers gather to celebrate German beer, food, and music. Twelve-ounce souvenir mugs hold European and American beers such as Frankenmuth Oktoberfest, Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale, and Warsteiner Oktoberfest, while local eateries Restaurant Mediteran and Deli, Grand Grillin, What Up Dawg?, and Marks Gourmet Dogs cook up German-inspired dishes such as spaetzle, pork tenderloin sliders, frankfurters, and bratwurst. Throughout the weekend, live bands such as the Polish Muslims and Kielbasa Kings churn out traditional German polka and alternative music.

Children younger than 12 years old can attend the festival for free on Saturday, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., and make their own traditional German crafts or visit an instrumental petting zoo.

Old Town Oktoberfest

Since 1825, the Old Town area has seen both prosperous times and, for the second half of the 20th century, stretches of destitution. Within the last 30 years, dedicated locals have started turning Old Town back around, dropping its building vacancy rates from 90% to fewer than 10%, and establishing a slew of festivals, art venues, and boutiques. The Old Town Commercial Association plays its role in this cultural and economic renaissance by holding the annual Old Town Oktoberfest, a Midwestern interpretation of the traditional German holiday.

Over the course of two days, live polka bands provide a soundtrack for German-style dancing and festivities. Vendors pour German and European Oktoberfest beers from Spaten, Warsteiner, and Frankenmuth, and autumnal beers from American breweries such as Sam Adams and Blue Moon. Local restaurants serve authentic German dishes such as spaetzle, potato soup, frankfurters, and bratwurst throughout the fest, allowing visitors to taste the country’s staples without having to stow away in a UN ambassador’s suitcase.
