Lakeside Oktoberfest

 Saturday, September 5, 2020 
4:00pm-9:30pm  
Pavilion, Hotel Lakeside Lawn & Lakefront (map)

Oktoberfest is the biggest folk festival in the world with millions of people flocking to Munich, Germany each year. This festival has become a phenomenon, and celebrations can be found all over the world.

On Saturday, Sept. 5, celebrate Oktoberfest in Lakeside as mugs of (root) beer are hoisted, a Bavarian feast is devoured, lively polka music is played, and a dazzling fireworks show completes the day.

To kick-off the celebration, The Chardon Polka Band brings their extensive catalog of traditional polkas from 4-7 p.m. at the Pavilion. This modern polka band isn’t afraid to bring their own tunes into the mix or surprise audiences with polka-pop covers that speak to a new generation.

Ward Catering will offers a delicious menu of Bavarian favorites, including bratwurst, pork and sauerkraut, perogies, soft pretzel, German potato salad, corn dogs, root beer floats, bottled water and canned pop from 4:30-6:30 p.m. on the Hotel Lakeside lawn. A la carte items are $2-5 or order a $12 platter. All major credit cards accepted.

Wrap up a fun day with fireworks along the waterfront at 9 p.m. A Rescue Marine barge will be used to launch the fireworks north of the dock. It will be positioned further out to allow for a wide viewing area. To practice safe social distancing, please spread out along the entire lakefront and wear masks. In the case of inclement weather, the fireworks will move to Sunday, Sept. 6.

At its core, Oktoberfest is really about coming together and having a good time, and we hope you’ll join us for a safe, family fun event in Lakeside. Please wear a mask and practice safe social distancing
