Who would have known the Germans have been doing Oktoberfest all wrong this entire time? Sauerkraut isn’t the perfect accompaniment for a cold beer and a juicy brat - it’s Toast! You’ll love their high energy, post apocalyptic punk funk approach to your favorite 90’s and blues tunes.
After a morning of fierce competition on the streets of Ottumwa, the challenge culminates at the Ottumwa Oktoberfest Drumline Battle! You’ll be amazed at the skill, precision, and creativity of some of the best drumlines in Southeast Iowa as they compete for the ultimate glory - the title of Oktoberfest Drumline Battle Champion.
