Doors open at 4:30 PM

Grab your Dirndl or Lederhosen and yodel your way on down to the Opera House. Germany is coming back to the Color Cruise Festival at the Grand Ledge Opera House on Friday, October 11 th from 5pm - 10pm, doors open at 4:30pm. Oomph music and dinner will be in the Grand Hall, which is handicap accessible.

The Opera House Oktoberfest began as a tribute to longtime residents Ernst and Barbara Floeter, immigrants coming from Germany in 1957. Together they brought the Old World to Grand Ledge, sharing their talents and life; proud citizens of America. This 3rd annual Oktoberfest, and future Oktoberfests, will be designated as Floet-oberfest in their honor.

We are excited to bring a bit of Gemütlichkeit again to our festival. A celebration in German food, music and beer, will provide family friendly entertainment throughout the evening. Polka music provided by the Dick Hedrich Band, and new this year, will be alphorn monstrations by the Alporngruppe Alpentraum Duo. We are excited to once again, be collaborating with the GLHS German Club in promoting and celebrating German heritage.

Entry at the door is $5, additional tickets for the catered German dinner are $12, and available at the Opera House and ACE Hardware. Dinners are limited to 125 numbered tickets and served from 5pm until 7pm. Get your dinner tickets early, as they have sold out the past two years! Also available for purchase on site will be brats, sauerkraut and pretzels. Achtung! A 2019 commemorative 15oz glass Bierstein that includes a fill, is only $20. Feel free to bring your own Bierstein to enjoy Oktoberfest beverages in.

Prizes awarded for the Best Dressed, Best Polka and Best Stein of Oktoberfest 2019! All proceeds will profit the Grand Ledge Opera House, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.
