5th Annual Oktoberfest-September 22
Downtown Beloit Association’s fifth annual Oktoberfest is one of Beloit’s most popular outdoor events! Hundred of locals and visitors fill the 300 block of State St. in historic downtown to enjoy several types of beer, live music, food, and more! This year, the event will be held from 5:30-11:00 p.m. on Friday, September 22, 2017.
This year’s headliner is Cold Sweat & the Brew City Horns! Cold Sweat is Wisconsin’s premier show band, featuring some of the area’s best musicians, multiple dynamic vocalists and the renowned three piece horn section, the Brew City Horns. Cold Sweat’s energy, talent and non-stop fun will infect you until you can’t help joining in. Their ultimate strength is their versatility, playing dance-able music that draws from many genres and eras – truly providing that rare “something for everyone” appeal. The group has headlined major festivals, venues, concert series and private events, including some of the largest fund raising events in the Midwest. Whether it is for a private event for 200 people or a concert for 20,000, Cold Sweat delivers!
The opening band, Killer Cars, will perform at 5:30 p.m. Killer Cars was formed in 2009 by members of several working original bands from the Madison area. Their show is all about fun, upbeat, dance-able tunes that most people haven’t heard played by other cover band. Their songs include hits from the 70’s 80’s 90’s and today.
Admission for the event is $5 for adults, $1 for children 4-12, under 4 are free.
