The Kinder Korner program is designed for children to participate in age appropriate activities within the ongoing Oktoberfest. The hours of operation are from 7:00 – 9:00 PM on Friday, and 4:00 – 9:00 PM on Saturday..This is an area within the Oktoberfest for them to be able to make crafts, have their face painted, and participate in other table games. Our goal is to implement a child safe area that allows children to participate in their own activities based on our annual Oktoberfest. There will be adult volunteers which will supervise the kids and guide them
through the activities.
Join everyone in the Oktoberfest Parade each night! This is for all of der Kinder (adults and children). Lead by der Bürgermeister.
