Celebrate the best of German traditions at Powell Oktoberfest with the Rotary Club of Olentangy on Saturday, September 22, 2018 from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. at the Powell Village Green.
Admission is free for this fun family-friendly festival featuring food trucks Schmidt’s food (and cream puffs!!), seasonal German beer flavors, German arts and crafts, and children’s activities led by the YMCA and Preservation Parks.

The event kicks off with an official tapping of the keg at 1 pm. There is an amateur corn hole tournament with cash prizes, so gather your team and enter.
