Main Street Marion is proud to present Oktoberfest as a part of our First Friday Downtown Celebrations event series. Main Street Marion’s Oktoberfest commences this Friday, October 2nd, at 4 p.m. in the 3rd Street Courtyard, 119 E 3rd St.
Enjoy a German-inspired dinner by the Dam Smokin’ Barbecue, German Chocolate Waffles by Mattie Lou’s Bayou South, tasty brews by New Corner Brewing Company, and themed entertainment & live music for all ears!
Back for the 3rd year is the Mississinewa Valley German Band! Let’s face it – it wouldn’t be Oktoberfest without this band! The “oompah” band will take the stage at 5:00 p.m. Their lively spirited music is sure to incite dancing downtown and rousing cheers of “Prost!”
At 6:30 p.m. Michael Kelsey will take the stage! Michael Kelsey is a rhythmic-inspired guitarist and performance artist who blends many musical genres with fervor and grace. When he hits the stage to perform, he plays every inch of his guitar pulling out every part of it or anything else at arm’s length or foot kick away. Throughout a performance, Michael may make use of technology, his improv skills, objects in the room, and audience interaction to make music for the ears, but more importantly a musical experience for the senses.

The Elixirs will begin their set at 9:30 p.m. fusing genres of alternative country, roots country, psychobilly, and cow punk. The Elixirs will have no problem keeping the party going until midnight!
