The 7th annual Galena Oktoberfest is a fun and family-friendly fall festival held in Galena's Depot Park. The event features a Ceremonial Tapping of the Keg, live music, polka lessons and dancing, and a bounce house and games for kids.
There are plenty of hearty German foods and drinks to enjoy, with German-style foods provided by Benjamin's Restaurant, Galena Elks, and Cynthia's Extra Batch Bakery.
Enter your wiener dog in the Wiener Dog Race, watch the Wiener Dog Parade, or vote for the best dressed wiener dog at the fest. You can compete in a Bean Bag Tournament, or see how long you can hold a full beer stein at shoulder height without spilling in the Beer Stein Endurance Contest.
