Neighbors gathered in Memorial Park in the Village of Hamburg to celebrate the 10th annual Oktoberfest celebration. 

A bit of German this, mixed with a bit of German that.

From German food and drinks, to German dancing and music, this festival brings the fall fever every year in September. 

Founded by a group of local businesses back in 2008, the Village of Hamburg has seen this festival grow from just a few to thousands year after year.

This day-long free event is a unique partnership between the community, local businesses and government and serves to revitalize Hamburg neighborhoods and organizations.

This year's event is on Saturday, September 9th from 3-11p.m.

 Proceeds will benefit the Village of Hamburg Fire Department and a program set to raise funds in the fight against the local opioid epidemic.
