…we hear they have a brewery in town as well…
The “City of Festivals”, New Ulm, Minnesota, will crank up the accordions at the 26th Annual Oktoberfest this fall in October. Oktoberfest New Ulm is a joint festival of the Holiday Inn New Ulm and the New Ulm Chamber of Commerce held the first two weekends in October each year to celebrate its German heritage. The festival will be held at the Holiday Inn and Downtown New Ulm featuring local, regional, and European entertainment, along with great German food and plenty of locally brewed August Schell’s beer products at both locations.
This Old World celebration will feature musical entertainment including New Ulm’s famous Concord Singers, German Brass Bands, and of course numerous local and regionally acclaimed polka bands providing all of the German favorites to “oompah, polka, and waltz” the night away. Don’t forget to visit the wonderful specialty shops while in downtown New Ulm, ranging from “gnome-made fudge”, collectible dolls, gift shops, and many, many more.
Also sure to please children and adults alike, will be the horse-drawn trolley rides throughout downtown on Saturdays and the numerous public tours available of the August Schell’s Brewery, John Lind Home, Wanda Gag House, Hermann Monument, Minnesota Music Hall of Fame, and many more.
We would be honored to have you “Discover Germany in Minnesota” while you join us for Oktoberfest 2007 and get to know New Ulm, the city and its people.
