Oompah bands, German food, German beer – and an easy way to create memories in Stowe! Need we say more? Yodel-ay-ee-oo!

One doesn’t have to be German to know that Stowe Oktoberfest means grand community fun, so peek under the big tent at the Stowe Events field for music (and dancing), German fare, Kinderplatz (fun stuff for kids) and an auction.

The official opening of Stowe Oktoberfest is with a Grand Parade along Mountain Road and Main Street on Saturday morning.

Last year, Oktoberfest allowed Stowe Rotary to raise more than $50,000 worth of support for local charities and scholarships in our region. Way to go! And thanks!
