Polka Music! Craft Beer! Chili! Pub Games!
You don’t want to miss this year’s Octoberfest in Downtown Ludington, presented by Bell’s and Ludington Bay Brewing Co. This event will kick off the fall season in Pure Ludington, and activities are lining up better than ever.
Octoberfest launches on Friday, Sept. 27 with Pub Crawl Games (5-9PM). Complete seven or more games at over a dozen local bars for a chance to win Downtown Ludington gift certificates. It’s just $10 to enter. Stop by Ludington Bay to get a map and get started!
The fun continues Saturday, Sept. 28 with a noon chili walk, where you can sample chili of all varieties at over 30 businesses. This is a free event, and your vote for the best chili gets you in a drawing for prizes. Graze until 2 PM, and get your vote in by 6PM.
German-style food, craft beer from Bell’s and Ludington Bay, and live music from the Marek Brothers Polka Band, Patty Pershayla, and Whiskey Rebels are all set for 2-6PM in James Street Plaza. Lawn games and kids’ activities including a bounce house make the festival a family event. No worries if there's inclement weather - there's a heated tent - so the show will go on, rain or shine!
Tickets for Octoberfest Craft Beer & Music Festival can be purchased here. Pre-sale ticket packages will get you into the festival an hour early!
