If you’d like to get a taste of Oktoberfest, don’t miss the nightly grilling and music on the patio at Bar Dupont, Wednesday’s live music at Old Europe, and a special visit to Blob’s Park by the Chemnitzer Stadtmusikanten Band. (We also have a full list of Oktoberfest parties and community celebrations for those who like to plan ahead.)
