Highlights from the 2017 Inaugural Event:
The Grand Ledge Opera House is proud to announce the addition of an Oktoberfest event to the Color Cruise weekend, extending the celebration of the harvest. “Oompa” music will be held at the Grand Ledge Opera House on Saturday during Color Cruise and will run from 1:00 - 10:00 PM.
This inaugural festival will be in honor of Ernst and Barbara Floeter, longtime residents as immigrants from Germany in 1957. They brought Old World to Grand Ledge, sharing talents and life, melding into proud citizens of America.
We are really excited to bring a bit of “Gemütlichkeit” to our festival. This will be a celebration in German food, music, and beer; complete with a catered meal, craft beer, and a live polka band. The Oktoberfest will provide entertainment with a variety of family oriented fun throughout the day. Professional Party Planners will be creating a German meal, and we are extending the opportunity for a group to provide a brat grilling station as well as other food stations.
