Oktoberfest returns to Owosso

Oktoberfest, presented by Planet Fitness of Owosso, returns for two days on Friday, Oct. 13 and Saturday, Oct. 14. Organized by the Shiawassee Regional Chamber of Commerce, Oktoberfest will take place in a large tent (The Biergarden) in the parking lot of Exchange and Water streets in Downtown Owosso. Family events will continue on to Ball and Exchange streets.

New this year will be authentic German food served in The Biergarden. From a butchery near Munich, Oktoberfest has received permission to use a 200-year old family recipe for tra­ditional

German bratwurst.

Friday evening’s music line up will be Lenny Gomulka and The Chicago Push Band, alternating with the DynaBrass of Toledo, Ohio. New on Saturday afternoon, Oktoberfest welcomes the 35-piece German Band Ein Prosit. The band will be playing from 1 to 4 p.m. At 5 p.m. polka music will begin with the Chicago Push Band, which will alternate with Gerry Kaminski’s Polka Network. Both six-piece bands will play until 11:30 p.m. There will be polka lessons, a beer stein endurance contest and live music all in the main event tent.
