In the City: Oktoberfest

It’s time to dig out your lederhosen!  Oktoberfest celebrations are kicking off in Hamilton this weekend and the International Village is hosting the event.

Oktoberfest 2011 - Opening Day: MUNICH, GERMANY

The village, located in downtown Hamilton, includes more than 100 shops and services.  The Oktoberfest events include food from local restaurants and food trucks, a beer garden, and sidewalk sales.  Two stages will host live bands, with headline performances from Steven Page (former member of the Barenaked Ladies), Poor Angus, and other local artists including Hamilton’s own Tomi Swick.  Check out a list of show times at the Oktoberfest event listing.  To keep up to date on event information, you can follow the International Village on Twitter.

The Mohawk College Library has databases that you can use to find articles from journals, magazines, and newspapers.  You can also search the e-Journal portal for specific titles that are available online.  To learn more about Oktoberfest events and traditions read Oompah!
