MACHINE SHOP, SAULT STE. MARIE, ON
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14th, 5pm-12am   
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15th, 2pm-12am 

We are incredibly excited to present Oktoberfest Year 2 in partnership with The Canal District 

Our inaugural event took place last year in 2021 during a sweet spot of the pandemic where we were fortunate enough to host our event safely. This year, it is so refreshing to be able to present the event the way we have dreamt of for many years!
We intend to grow every year, and to expand on our local partners involved in the festival.

Year two we have planned a TWO-DAY festival with live music, games, and competitions (for kids and adults), vendors, family friendly activities…and of course great food and BEER!

This event will provide locals and tourists with an opportunity to feel as though they have entered a
Munich Biergarten in the heart of Sault Ste. Marie. The festival will take place at the same location as last year, on the rink under the roof of the Machine Shop, with the addition of tents and activities on the adjacent grassy area. 

You have the option of purchasing a one-day pass, or a weekend pass. The weekend pass allows you to come and go as you please throughout the weekend, so you won't miss out on any of the action. More details on the event and a link to purchase tickets can be found on this page.
