IL: Marchtoberfest at the Lindenhof

March 20, 2017 by  

Why wait until the fall to enjoy a German Oktoberfest? You are invited to attend the Peoria German-American Central Society’s one-of-a-kind Marchtoberfest on Sunday, March 26th – Noon to 6 pm at the Lindenhof, 7601 N. Harker Drive, Peoria, Illinois 61615. Marchtoberfest heralds the end of Winter and the start of Spring, much like Oktoberfest signals the end of Summer and the beginning of Fall.

Traditionally, the beers served at Oktoberfest were brewed in March or spring and then stored underground during the summer before being served in September. German summers were typically too hot to brew lagers. These Märzen (March) biers were the historic forerunner of the Oktoberfestbiers of today. Special beers, including Oktoberfest, will also be available for the event. Entertainment will also be provided starting at 1pm.
