Loudonville, Ohio – If travelling to Germany is not in the foreseeable future, then head over to Loudonville for the Wolf Creek Grist Mill’s Oktoberfest on September 27th, from noon until 11:30pm. This incredible fundraiser is full of food, rubber duck races, beer, wine, games and entertainment. The Wolf Creek Grist Mill provides a chance for visitors to help this historic site while enjoying the scenery, food and tastings all at the same time.
Mark Smith, President of Friends of The Mill, says, “Oktoberfest at The Mill has become such a popular event because unlike many Oktoberfest’s that only offer a limited selection of beer, we offer our event-goers over 75 beers. There’s truly something for everyone to enjoy! Patrons love being able to sample any variety we offer so they can experience many different beers without having to commit to an entire glass or bottle of something they’ve never had before.”
For a $5.00 entry fee, each person that is 21 years old and over, has the opportunity to taste beers that range from seasonal selections, craft beers, local selections to include nearby craft brewers Millersburg Brewing Company, international selections, ciders, gluten-free choices, draft and bottle selections. Wines will include Pumpkin and Apple Cinnamon from D&D Smith Winery and Harvest Blend, Red Raspberry, and Honeymoon Mead from Paper Moon vineyards.
New to the food selection this year is Great Plains Bison Burgers. They will offer bison burgers, bison sloppy joes, bison hot dogs and more. Other food options include BBQ and French fries.
What would an Oktoberfest be without Polka? Well, nothing really. That is why an authentic German band that has played at Oktoberfest in Munich will be playing from 1-3pm. Later in the day, enjoy the popular entertaining music stylings of Steve Brownell.
With safety being top of mind, guests staying at the following sponsors will be offered free busing to and from the event from 3pm- 11pm: Blackfork Inn B&B, Mohican Adventures, Mohican River Inn, Mohican State Park Campground, Smith’s Campground and Wally World Resort. For more information on how to contact these sponsors for an overnight stay, visit discovermohican.com.
The Mohican Valley Artists, established earlier this year, will also be doing glass blowing demonstrations and other painting styles on site. Stop by and be amazed at the local talent available to the area as they showcase the creations made.
This is Wolf Creek Grist Mill’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Smith states, “Oktoberfest provides the opportunity for our visitors to enjoy a unique area event that at the same time helps us raise awareness, appreciation and funds for the project. Most importantly, every penny earned goes right back into funding the preservation and restoration efforts at Wolf Creek Grist Mill Historic Park and Museum to ensure this wonderful piece of history will be around for generations to come.”
