The 6th Annual C-U Oktoberfest
The C-U Oktoberfest is a fall celebration of music, beer, and food held in downtown Champaign. Patterned after the annual festival in Bavaria, the C-U Oktoberfest features live music from bands playing festive polkas, waltzes, and traditional German music...mixed in with plenty of your favorite songs. Beer from local brewers and a selection of German beers will be served. Party-goers are encouraged to get in the spirit by wearing their best dirndl or lederhosen (or come as they are) and dance the night away!
Family and children's activities, include a bounce house, face painting, and more will be available from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Developmental Services Center. Join in the fun! Prost!
