Saline’s Oktoberfest 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.
Come and enjoy a taste of German culture right here at home!
An Oktoberfest party wouldn’t be complete without plenty of local and regional music favorites. We’ll fill our stage with both German and modern music to please all ears under our covered Entertainment Stage.
