The third annual Oshkosh Oktoberfest brings German fun and flavors to Wisconsin’s Event City on Saturday, October 6. This day long festival includes live polka music, German dancing and authentic German food from the Roxy Supper Club.
There will be lots of competitions at Oshkosh Oktoberfest, all with a German theme. The Oktoberfest 2K Bier Run and Costume Contest will take German-costumed runners twice around a loop, with four beer stops along the way. Later in the day, there will be the Doxie Dash, a dachshund-only running race.
But the biggest competition will be the Oktoberfest Olympics, which will include barrel rolling, a beer stein holding contest, a cheese toss, a stein relay and Fraulein carrying races. Sheepshead games will be going on all day, as well. It’s going to be fun, so start training!
Saturday night’s entertainment will include the energetic Happy Schnapps Combo and local favorite Copper Box. Altogether, it’s one great big day of German fun.
