Oktoberfest returns to Douglas Oct. 1

Oktoberfest is back and bigger than ever! There was a time when they raced horses down Main St., Douglas. This year, on Saturday, October 1, we will once again be closing Main Street (and Depot Street) to traffic and opening it up to our friends and neighbors! 
From 9a.m.-4p.m. we will have live music, games, rides, food, a car show, fundraisers, and little dog races. 
New for this year is an all-ages pinewood derby race with a $300 prize for fastest car and $100 prize for “best in show.” 
This year we will feature local brewing phenom Greater Good in our beer tent, with music from the Rusty Spike and the Brian James Quartet. We are also bringing back our authentic soda jerk experience, a second train, and tricycle racing for all ages. 
Kooman Lumber will be providing a hay ride from The Douglas Elementary and Middle Schools to the event, and additional parking will be available at Soldier’s field to make it easier than ever to park and attend the event. 
If you are interested in being a vendor, volunteer, or performer at Douglas Oktoberfest, contact us through our website, facebook page, or our email, [email protected]
