You’re encouraged to dress up for the run/walk in your best lederhosen or dirndl. Kids aren’t left out with their own half-mile fun run called the Kinderlauf.

When you’re done, stay for the Oktoberfest Post-Race Party at Schwiebert Riverfront Park supported by Euclid Beverages and City Limits! There will be your favorite beverages, German food, music, games for adults, bounce house for kids, and fun! This Quad Cities Oktoberfest is open to the public and for the whole family. It is open from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Proceeds from this event benefit the Church of Peace Food Pantry that serves over 1,700 families each year and annually supplies 58,000 pounds of food, and other community outreach efforts.

You can donate directly to the food pantry!
