A committee will determine which items will be accepted. If your exhibit is rejected your check will be returned by the Oktoberfest Committee. Artist and crafts people, in addition to exhibiting and/or retailing their work, are asked to demonstrate their craft, if at all possible.

Sunday, Oct. 6, 2019, 10am-4pm
On Sunday October 6 from 10 -4 we’ll once again celebrate our flagstone event, Oktoberfest, and this one promises to be bigger and better! Of course the museum will be open, the German Band will stroll the grounds, and a selected county high school band will perform. In addition, we’re providing a newly expanded “food court” to include a variety of vendors emphasizing German flavors. Registered so far are Big Willie’s (German) BBQ, American Legion Ladies Auxillary (brats and kraut), and Mom Andrasik’s Cabbage Rolls, to be washed down, if desired, with Gold Medal-winning Octoberfest beer from Mother Stewart’s Brewing Company (Springfield). So mark your calendars and remember to bring friends and family!
