Oktoberfest – Updated

Event Details

At this time, the State of Ohio is not allowing festivals to be held. This means we get to reinvent one of our favorite German Food filled weekends on Put-in-Bay – Oktoberfest!

What You Can Expect: While we are not able to hold the event in our Oktoberfest tent, that will not stop your favorite local establishments form serving your favorite Oktoberfest foods! The smell of cabbage and noodles, chicken paprikash, and German Chocolate cake will fill the air as you visit your favorite island restaurants to find your favorite dishes. You may even see some lederhosen! Check back soon for a list of what restaurants will be serving. Make plans to “prost” with us as we celebrate Oktoberfest 2020 style.
