Wilkommen!

Join us for the 13th Annual Oktoberfest on Friday, September 22 & 23, 2017 in Downtown Saline. Most of the festivities are held in the parking lot at 101 S. Ann Arbor Street.

Saline’s Oktoberfest (Octoberfest) celebrates our sister city relationship with Lindenberg, Germany.  The term, Oktoberfest, is borrowed from the name of the famous 16-day celebration held in Munich, Germany where visitors consume great quantities of food and beer and dance to traditional music.

An Oktoberfest party wouldn’t be complete without plenty of local and regional music favorites.  You’ll find a taste of both German and modern music to please all ears under our covered Entertainment Stage.

Friday, September 22nd
5 PM to 11 PM
