Peoria will be the place to be for a two-day, family-friendly Oktoberfest celebration. Attendees can enjoy live Festmusik straight from Germany; authentic German food, including brats, pretzels, beer and more; competitions with prizes; wide variety of activities and entertainment for kids and grown-ups and vendors offering assorted products. When most people hear the word “Oktoberfest,” one thing comes to mind…. Bavarian beer. There will be plenty of beer with an official keg tapping both nights during the opening ceremony at 6 p.m.
The traditional clothing of lederhos’n or dirndls are not required attire to attend, but feel free to wear them.
