Milwaukee's First Oktoberfest

New for 2017 - Kegel's Inn Friday Fish Fry available outside under the music tent!

“Pull out your Lederhosen and dust off your Dirndls, this is going to be the best Oktoberfest of the year” said Lion Bill Elliott. This year, excitement is building because the organizers moved the event from the parking lot of Kegel's Inn out onto 59th street between National Ave and Greenfield Avenue. "We'll have way more room to party, and with our Friday Fish Fry under the tent with live music, it's going to be soo much fun!" Says Kegel's Inn owner Julian Kegel.

On Friday, August 25th, festivities will kick off at 4 pm with a Ribbon Cutting by The West Allis Chamber of Commerce, that will celebrate the successful transition of Kegel's Inn to the fourth generation of family ownership. Kegel's Inn will celebrate their 93 years in business by offering their famous Friday Fish Fry outside under the tent for the first time in their history. Fish Fry service begins at 4 pm and goes until 10 pm. Live music by the Talismen will be complimented by German beers that will flow unobstructedly in the new 59th Street Beer Garden until it closes at 11 pm. 

On Saturday, August 26th the festival will be open from Noon until 11 pm, with live music starting at 1pm with the Brewhaus Polka Kings and then follwed by Blaskappelle Milwaukee at 6pm. Kegel's Inn will be also offering authentic German cuisine outside in the beer garden all weekend. 

On Sunday, August 27th, the event will run from Noon -6 pm, with live music by the Music Venders starting at 2pm. Kegel's Inn will be also offering authentic German cuisine outside in the beer garden all weekend.
