Cedarburg, WI. Oktoberfest 2019

  • Cedarburg Community Center parking lot W63 N641 Washington Ave. Cedarburg WI 53012 United States (map)

A perfect weekend in October includes Cedarburg's 12th Annual Oktoberfest in Downtown Historic Cedarburg. Saturday, 11am-8pm and Sunday, 11am-5pm

A huge tent is erected in the Community Center Parking Lot (W63 N641 Washington Ave.) covering the bands, dance floor and tables, and lending a true Oktoberfest feel. Oktoberfest offers authentic German music including the Pommersche Tanzdeel Freistadt Dancers, Tuba Dan, the Alte Kameraden Band and the Cedarburg Civic Band, plus a wooden dance floor for polka fans. The live Glockenspiel, a delightful goofy giant cuckoo clock that comes to life every two hours, is another huge crowd pleaser. And there will be a merchants' marketplace, too.

You will find a variety of German foods and beers, not forgetting German desserts. Specialty beers such as Hofbrau, Hacker Pschorr, Leinenkugel Oktoberfest and BlueMoon, plus a variety of Cedar Creek Winery wines, including the Gold Medal Cedar Creek Riesling will be available, too.

Silly contests with prices include Best Lederhosen/Dirndl attire (male and female); sauerkraut eating contest and Sunday's German spelling bee from Ault to Zither (A-Z).
