Actung! Get Yo Drink On At Navy Pier
The same folks behind the festive Christkindlmarket — the annual German holiday market on Daley Plaza — are organizing an 18-day “Germany’s Best &Oktoberfest” at Navy Pier this fall. Festivities kick off Sept. 23 and run through Oct. 10 — similar to the three-week event in Munich.
There will be the traditional sights and sounds of Oktoberfest: waitresses in Dirndls and waiters in Lederhosen serving up half-liters of beer under tents pitched along the southeast end of Navy Pier, along with plenty of bratwurst and oompah music for all. But this isn’t just a party, says Sonja Martinez with German American Services Inc., the producers of the Oktoberfest event.
