The worldwide celebration of beer, brats and our German and Bavarian ancestors comes home for a month long celebration across the city. Get out your steins and pretzels! Here are just a few of the many Oktoberfest events happening this month.
Don’t worry that summer went by too fast. Yummy autumn festivals abound in the Chicago area.
Nothing says October better than a brat and a beer on an Indian summer day. Spend an autumn afternoon exploring the historically German-American neighborhood of Lincoln Square and celebrate Oktoberfest with music, kids’ activities (Kinderfest), and, of course, homemade brats and kegs of beer.
