Sláinte! Join Carbondale neighbors and locals for this unique twist on Oktoberfest: toast the Emerald Isle with an evening of bagpipes, beer, and the “Best Legs in a Kilt Contest.” Sample authentic Austrian cuisine, soak up some Celtic tunes, and enjoy a jolly good autumn evening. Jig on by the 4th Street Plaza to check out the Friday night fun. Willkommen! Time to dust off last year’s stein and fill it full with this year’s beer. Oktoberfest kicks off at 11:00am Saturday, and promises to be a day full of fun with German bands, food, and beer. Half and full-liter steins available while supplies last—get yours before it’s gone! Test your merit at the Liter Holding Contest or Nail Driving Contest. Dance the Hokey Pokey or the Chicken Dance, and round out the evening with live music from local bands. Located at the 4th Street Plaza.
