Believe it or not, with the kids back at school, summer is pretty much over. With the days starting to shorten quickly, it is hard to not look forward to the fall season. While football, pumpkins and foliage might first come to mind when thinking of fall in Central Indiana, the locals, largely of German descent, really embrace Oktoberfest. The Northside, consequently, has plenty of great Oktoberfest festivities scheduled in the next couple of weeks.


Cornerstone Lutheran Church


Carmel's Cornerstone Lutheran Church, at the corner of Main Street and Gray Road, will host its Oktoberfest on Friday, September 22nd, between the hours of 4:00pm and 10:00pm. Check out this great Oktoberfest festival emceed by local favorite Paul Poteet. Visitors of all ages will love Cornerstone Lutheran Church's selection of German foods and live polka music. Adults 21 years of age and older can enjoy the Beer Garden at all hours of the festival.


Carmel City Center Oktoberfest


Visitors to the Cornerstone Lutheran Church may also went to visit the Carmel City Center Oktoberfest, which will also be held on Friday, September 22nd. This one starts a little later at 6:00pm, but it also runs until 10:00pm. Polkaboy, a favorite among many Northsiders, will perform live at this great Oktoberfest event. Carmel City Center's Oktoberfest is open to to visitors of all ages, and there is no charge for admission.


Fishers Oktoberfest Saxony


Held in tandem with Fishers' legendary Freedom Festival, there is no admission to Fishers' main Oktoberfest celebration.

On Friday, it opens up at 5:30pm. On Saturday, the party starts at noon, allowing guests to have plenty of time to enjoy the festivities. Alongside drink, food and a host of activities are planned for both days.


St. Alphonsus Catholic Church


Zionsville's large Catholic church, St. Alphonsus, is hosting its annual Oktoberfest again in 2017. This one is scheduled for Saturday, October 6th, a little later than the other Northside Oktoberfest festivals. It is only open to adults 21 years of age and older, however, and there is an admission charge of $5.00 per person. This event starts at 6:30pm, and it will go late into the evening. All earnings from this festival will go to charity. In fact, last year, St. Alphonsus raised around $17,000. German foods, live music, a raffle and a beirgarten are all offered by St. Alphonsus at this great gathering.
