Starting at 6 p.m. on Friday, October 10, and at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 11, revelers gather to celebrate German beer, food, and music. Twelve-ounce souvenir mugs hold European and American beers and hard cider, while local eateries cook up German-inspired dishes. For the first time, the festival will be pouring seven Michigan seasonal and Oktoberfest beers on a rotating handle. Alternative-rock bands headline throughout the weekend.

When they return to the event on Saturday, visitors must be wearing their wristbands; they should also bring their souvenir mugs and any remaining food and drink tickets.

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.
