Bremen 2016 is proud to be reviving the long-running tradition of Oktoberfest in downtown Bremen October 7 - 9. The festival, which originally ran from 1977 - 1991, is part of the organization's efforts to commemorate Indiana's Bicentennial in 2016 and has been designated by the state as an official Legacy Project.
Fun is being planned for all ages! Kids in preschool through 5th grade will have a blast with games and activities in the Community Gospel Church kids' tent, including hay rides, games, a petting zoo, a pumpkin chunkin' contest, karaoke and much more! Older students and adults can get in on the fun with a longboard race, corn hole tournament, or bed race, and all visitors will enjoy over 70 booths full of handmade and commercial items, delicious food and live entertainment all weekend long! The Bremen Volunteer Firemen will sponsor a beer garden on Friday and Saturday, as well, with brats and commemorative steins for sale. Brew fans can taste many local craft beer and wine offerings at the Bremen Brew Festivus on Saturday at Sunnyside Park.
The festival will be held along Plymouth St. and South Jackson St. Friday from 5:00 - 9:00 p.m., Saturday from 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m., and Sunday from noon - 5:00 p.m. Admission is free. The festival is made possible in part by the Marshall County Tourism Bureau. For more information, visit www.bremen2016.com.
