Parktoberfest is returning to Downtown Detroit (Campus Martius) this weekend with live entertainment and fun for families. It's an event that toasts "Oktoberfest" with a Detroit Twist.
The hours are:
Friday, September 16, from 5 p.m. - midnight
Saturday, September 17, from noon - midnight
Organizers say the two days of activities will be "sprinkled with samples of traditional Oktoberfest elements."
The Downtown Parktoberfest will feature the Big Bier Garden Tent, supported by Atwater Brewery and Great Lakes Beverage, offering craft and Oktoberfest beer lovers more than 25 impressive selections, including the popular Blocktoberfest from Atwater Brewery in Detroit, and Hofbrau and Spaten from Munich.
This includes live entertainment by Immigrant Sons, Corktown Popes and the Polish Muslims, a Kidz Zone with the favorite Faygo root beer garden and interactive activities and pumpkin carving demonstrations. There will also be a photo booth, a zucchini 500 race for the kids, and an array of specialty foods.
