The Douglas Oktoberfest will be held 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 7 on Main Street. The event draws more people to the area than any other local event. The downtown street fair is attended by thousands who look forward to it each year. This Oktoberfest continues to be a huge success and continues to get bigger and better each year. There’s a huge diversity of the activities and quality of the entertainment, so come on and enjoy.
Vendors line both sides of Main Street offering crafts, food, games, and unique displays that keep the everyone entertained until evening. There’s entertainment from singers, bands, choral groups, dance routines, and variety shows captivate audiences. Rides and games are prominently displayed on the church lawn allowing easy access by families with small children. The Huge Slide, moonwalk, train, and obstacle course are always a great hit with our younger citizens. The cash cube, filled with generous prizes, is an established favorite. The Oktoberfest celebration also provides a forum for local non-profits to raise funds in a way that’s fun for all. Proceeds from many food booths, games, childrens’ activities, and more go to support local community groups.
