The fun begins at 4 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 26, lasting until 10 p.m. and resumes from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 27.
In addition to live music by Nite Owl, 2nd Hand Soldier and Jones Road, other entertainment includes a grain toss and stein hoistings for adults and carnival games and bouncy houses for children.
Kiwanis members will be preparing and serving brats, burgers and other classic German foods all day long.
Admission is free, but silent auction and raffle tickets will be available to additionally support Kiwanis youth projects in the community.
The traditional Kiwanis auction began in the 1970s as a fundraiser for construction of the Cascade Swim Center. It emerged as an Oktoberfest auction in 2008.
