Offerings include bratwurst, sauerkraut, pretzels, hamburgers, hot dogs, a variety of pastry, coffee, water, soft drinks, and of course beer!
Entertainment will once again be provided by the ever popular King Ludwig’s Bavarian Band. King Ludwig’s will be performing all of your favorite Oktoberfest-themed songs including The Beer Barrel Polka, Ein Prosit and Edelweiss. Words to many of the songs they will play are included in the event’s program book so that you may sing along! The band also encourages participation from the audience in the way of dancing and interaction with the songs.
Keeping with tradition, we will be selling the fifth edition of our souvenir pint glass for a small charge The design of this years’ pint glass is sure to be a very popular one, as the city of Woburn celebrates 375th anniversary of settlement, so don’t miss out on purchasing one or two as you enter the event. There are also limited editions of pint glasses from 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014 that will be on sale at a discounted price. They make great holiday gifts!
