At Saline Main Street, our Promotions Team event organizers and amazing team of volunteers are gearing up for this year’s Oktoberfest – and it promises to be bigger and better than ever before!

Tons of you have been to Downtown Saline over the years for this authentic German cultural event centered on fabulous food, community fun and great beverage. This is our nonprofit organization’s biggest annual fundraiser, and we love to see folks come back time and time again! Each year that we host Oktoberfest, we meet friends old and new in our wonderful downtown. And, this year is no exception – we’re rolling out the red carpet and inviting all to join us at this premiere family-friendly event in the Heart of Downtown Saline!
