C-U Oktoberfest

The 4th Annual C-U Oktoberfest and Inaugural Dirndl Dash 5K Run & Walk

Both events were a success! We will post the amount of funds raised when we have all monies accounted for an all bills paid...stay tuned! Until then, thanks for joining us! We can't wait until next year! Prost!

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!
