• Oktoberfest: 3rd Saturday in October

    A growing favorite in the community, the 15th Annual Elkhorn Oktoberfest will fill the town square with fall fun Saturday, October 17th, 2020 from 9am-5pm in Veterans and Pocket Parks. Walk around the downtown square to see over 100 crafters and vendors showcasing handcrafted items, antiques, produce and plants, home party consultants and more.

    Oktoberfest Cuisine

    By closing down the Wisconsin Street block we provide tons of hard surface for food trucks and food booth vendors to roll in and provide delicious food options!  With 20+ food vendors filling the streets there will be something for everyone to enjoy.  

    All Around Town Beer & Wine Tasting

    Due to over-crowding in our Oktoberfest Beer Pavilion, we will be exploring the downtown area with an All-Around Town Beer & Wine Tasting.  Elkhorn Oktoberfest tasting glasses will be sold downtown at the Elkhorn Chamber booth located on the corner of Wisconsin and Walworth.  Each glass will be distributed with the All-Around Tasting map which will include the participating establishments and the “tastings” available at each location.  Tasters will have access to $1 Beer & Wine Tastings at all participating locations.

    Live Music

    Celebrate the season with live music at our Park Stage.  Music starts at 11am and will play all day!
