MainStrasse Village’s Oktoberfest, named as one of Southeast Tourism Society’s “Top 20 Festivals for September 2011”, one of Top Events USA’s “Top Ten 2011 Events in Kentucky” and one of Kentucky Tourism Council’s “Top Ten 2010 Fall Festivals”, invites families and travelers from throughout the Midwest to join with local crowds in enjoying the 33rd annual festival from September 9 to 11.
A great mix of German and international foods, music and arts and crafts attracts approximately 125,000 people to this popular festival in historic MainStrasse Village, Covington, Kentucky.
The festival extends over 6 city blocks, along the tree lined 6th Street Promenade, Philadelphia Street, Main Street and Goebel Park, creating the perfect backdrop for the variety of appealing foods, drinks and works by over 75 artisans and crafters from all over the country.
As always there will be traditional German food and, of course, a variety of other festival favorites. And be sure to visit the Kinderplatz, full of adventures and rides for the kids and the Amusement Midway filled with fun for the "older" kids. On Saturday and Sunday, you can purchase an "All You Can Ride" bracelet for just $15. Bracelets may be purchased from opening until 5pm and will be valid until 6pm the day of purchase only.
Quality live entertainment by top local performers will spread the festival mood throughout Oktoberfest. Great Pop, Classic Rock, Blues, Country and German will be featured at the Festival Stage, the Main Street Stage, the Goose Girl Stage and the Goebel Park Stage.
