Dust off your lederhosen and say "pretzel' because Oktoberfest is coming to Libertyville! Join us on Friday, September 23 and Saturday, September 24. On Friday the event is from 5:00 pm - 11:00 pm (but a VIP ticket will get you early entry at 4:00pm) and Saturday the event is from 1:00 pm - 6:00pm (VIP ticket holders get in at 12:00pm). Join us in Mickey Finn's back lot all weekend for Libertyville's premiere Oktoberfest event. Get your tickets now!

Enjoy live music while sampling a fein selection of local brews. Wash it all down with a few pretzels and enjoy a traditional Bavarian bier sport like Hammerschlagen or Masskrugstemmen. Collect one-of-kind memorabilia, participate in a best dressed contest (we're talking dirndl and lederhosen) honoring Steve Strumberger, or just relax with your neighbors and friends at this unique community event. Get your tickets now!


General Admission tickets come with a plastic stein and one free beer ticket.

VIP tickets get you in an hour earlier than general admission, an extra beer ticket and a commemorative glass stein.

Additional beer tickets ($7.00 each) will need to be purchased with a credit card. This is a cashless event. You must be 21 years or older to attend this event. ID's will be checked at the door.
