Why wait until October to celebrate Oktoberfest? Saline sure isn’t waiting to honor their sister city, Lindenberg, Germany. The Saline German fest kicks off with the “Tapping of the Golden Keg,” followed by a parade of jolly and drunken people in lederhosen. Grab a brew in the Bier Garten and fill a plate with heaps of traditional German cuisine (American food is also available if you aren’t into kraut). The second day begins with an early morning farmer’s market, and a Saline high school bake sale. Traditional German music from Linda Lee and Band will keep your feet moving with upbeat melodies (just don’t slosh from your stein), along with a cornhole tournament.

Find the full schedule online. 5-11pm Friday, September 25, 8am-11pm Saturday, September 26.
$5. Main Street, Saline.
