"Come and celebrate Wisconsin's German heritage, enjoy music, food, crafts, inflatables - and of course beer from Sand Creek Brewing Company."

Back this year will be Oktoberfest Market Haus, a large event for craft and artisan vendors. Returning will be the medieval tournament knight fights performing throughout the day.

The day's events begin at 9:30 a.m. with Dave Kiral performing. Outside will be the "Things that Roll" car and motorcycle show. Other entertainment will be the Black River High School Band at 11:30 a.m., Gary's Ridgeland Dutchmen from 12:15 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. and also playing from 3:30 to 5.
