Opening Ceremony Celebration with Official Keg TappingNoon Parade followed by 1:00 PM Keg Tapping Cermony Every Saturday of the Oktoberfest weekends
The Muenchner Kindl leads the Bavarian procession with the village people carrying our Countries flags.
Leavenworth’s own Musikkapelle rides in a blue and white colorful band wagon, playing those old familiar and traditional Bavarian marches and polkas. Other villagers and visiting guests will be in colorful traditional Bavarian dirndls and lederhosen.
Following the band is the Edelweiss Tanz Gruppe and the Bavarian style Bier Wagon, beautifully decorated with red and white carnations. There will also be other horse drawn wagons and a carriage carrying Leavenworth’s mayor and city officials. The procession starts every Saturday at noon on Ski Hill Drive on Hwy 2 and goes down Front Street to the Festhalle, where the fun begins!
