After a year break due to COVID-19, the annual Oktoberfest returns to the Shoppes at Piemont on Saturday.
This year’s Oktoberfest, which runs from 5pm to 11pm, features four food stalls, live music from Lincoln’s AM / FM, and – of course – beer.
Husker fans don’t have to miss the soccer game either, said Brian Wallingford, an organizer of the event. The game on Saturday night in Michigan State will be projected onto an outside screen.

In addition to football, there are other competitions for the participants. At the Oktoberfest there is yodelling, pretzel meals, beer mugs and costume competitions.
“We’re trying to make the event a fun one. When you come down we’ll make sure it’s a good time,” said Wallingford.
Tickets are now available through the shopping center website, but can also be purchased on site. Piedmont Shoppes is located at 1265 S. Cotner Blvd.
Oktoberfest, which is exclusively for people aged 21 and over, offers basic and VIP packages. The basic package, which is available for $ 28, includes entry only and three drink tickets for domestic beers. With the VIP option, available for $ 40, ticket holders get three drink cards, a custom beer mug, and access to all beers, including eight German imports.
