The 2017 Deleware Saengerbund Oktoberfest is here! The Oktoberfest opens on Friday, September 15 at 5:00 p.m. and closes at 11 p.m. Hours on Saturday are 12 to 11 p.m. and Sunday 12 to 6 p.m.
The opening parade will be held on Friday at 7:00 p.m. The parade features the Muenchner Kindl, Munich Child, symbol of the city of Munich which leads the opening parade of the Munich Oktoberfest. The child is dressed in brown monk’s garb with golden stripes, similar to that of the Benedictine order, founders of the city. German food specialties include grilled Bratwurst (pork sausage), Weisswuurst (veal sausage), Frankfurters, BBQ chicken, potato pancakes, pretzels and “Rollmops”, a marinated herring served with rye bread. Potato salad and sauerkraut are made daily in the Delaware Saengerbund kitchen. A variety of Torten and traditional plum cake are the tempting sweet fare.
