The 10th annual C-U Oktoberfest will take place in Downtown Champaign on Saturday, September 30th. All proceeds benefit Developmental Services Center; this fundraiser is always a good time with tasty German-style food and lively music.

Per the Facebook event page:

C-U Oktoberfest is a fall celebration of music, beer, and food held in downtown Champaign on Saturday, September 30, 3 p.m.-10 p.m.

Featuring live music from The Polkaholics and Die Musikmeisters playing festive polkas, waltzes, and traditional German music…mixed in with plenty of your favorite songs!

Beer from your favorite local brewers, Blind Pig, Riggs, and Triptych, along with an assortment of authentic German beer. German-style food from some of C-U’s most sought-after food trucks Smith Burger and Watson’s. Bring the kids early for fun in the Kid Zone from 3-6pm. Get in the spirit by wearing your best dirndl or lederhosen and dance the night away!

Proceeds from the event will benefit DSC to help further their mission, “DSC supports people in living a rich and meaningful life.”
