Also, delicious food will be available. Oktoberfest patrons enjoy strolling through numerous craft and novelty vendors selling such items as quilts, clay art, candy, homemade bath and body items, candles and jewelry. Our improved children’s area “Kid’s World”, will entertain children from 11am – 6 pm.
Oktoberfest will have lots of fun contests, including a brat toss, beer barrel race, stein race, and a dunk tank. And yes, you can win prizes.

This festival is in Greeley Colorado by the way. Just happens to be my home town! The beers by Crabtree Brewing and Pitchers are very good. They don’t get much publicity but they attend most local brewfests.
