Labor Day often signals the close of summer activities in Butler County, and with that comes the annual Oktoberfest at Liberty Home German Society.
The annual German celebration, now in its 49th year, draws large crowds with its lure of sauerkraut, potato cakes and crème puffs. It includes rides and games and is an atmosphere for families.
Other food at the festival includes mettwurst, brautwurst, cabbage rolls, Limburger cheese and much more. Adult beverages include German and domestic beers.
A slew of live entertainment is scheduled throughout the weekend. Find a full schedule here.
Liberty Trustee Corey Wagonfield, who serves as communications coordinator, says new this year is an indoor beer and wine stube with live entertainment.
The festival will also have “double the food lines for quicker service,” Wagonfield said.
Credit cards are now accepted at Oktoberfest.
