Farmers Market Find: Oktoberfest to Feature Local Beers
The Royal Oak Farmers Market is set to host the 4th annual Oktoberfest / 86th Anniversary Event at the market, on Saturday, October 15th, as part of a joint fundraiser for the market, and the Royal Oak Historical Society. Doors will open at 6 pm. Presenting sponsor is Flagstar Bank.
Staying local is what it’s all about, with 100 percent of the profits from the locally brewed beer/wine sales going directly to the charity, while proceeds from ticket sales and silent auction bids will help the Royal Oak Farmers Market with much needed renovations. “In these tough financial times, it’s great to enjoy a night out while helping other people” quoted one market patron. Whether you polka or not, it’s sure to be a fun and affordable evening for the whole family.
The evening includes dancing to “The Good Times Orchestra”, bidding on valuable items at the Silent Auction, a demonstration by authentic dance group, Sarisan Slovak Folk Ensemble, and other incredible edibles from Lily’s Seafood. In addition, don’t miss seeing the largest pumpkin grown in Michigan.
Admission is $5.00 with 10 years & under free. Tickets are available now at the market office, or at the door. Beer, wine, soda and concessions will be available for purchase during the event. For further information, contact Shelly Mazur at 248.246.3078.
