From the website:

You're bound to have a good time with all we have to offer you: a large beer tent featuring varieties of Erdinger Beer as well as other German beers and wines, authentic German food from Erika's Delicatessen, hot dogs and root beer for the kids, great German bands, and our own Edelweiss dub and Sailors Ahoy choirs. Don't miss the opening ceremonies on Friday and Saturday, where a rare treat awaits you - four Alphom players thrill us with their distinctive music, that can be heard across mountains. Feeling competitive? Try your hand at the keg-tossing or stein-holding contests! Educate your taste buds at our wine-tasting events. Snag some Oktoberfest tee-shirts and beer mugs while you're at it Families welcome! Come visit with the animals at the zoo, then visit Oktoberfest for more kids' entertainment; well have DeeJay the Clown, carnival games with prizes, cookie decorating, and face-painting. There is no entrance fee, and no parking fee. Oktoberfest West Michigan is bigger and better than ever, so come on down and feel the gemuetlichkeit for yourself!
