Celebrating 25 years of Oktoberfest, the Northside neighborhood, located just north of downtown Iowa City, is back in business with in-person partying Oct. 2.
From noon to 8 p.m., revelers can take part in outdoor games such as keg bowling and giant Jenga; lederhosen and yodeling contests; and traditional Oktoberfest entertainment, plus live music, at the Northside Oktoberfest Outdoor Bier Hall on North Linn Street.
While BrewFest is sold out, there are still plenty of suds to be had in the area. Purchase an official Bier Hall Mug for $15 and get a brew with your purchase. Plus, you can get drink refills with your mug at area bars and restaurants.
