Every year, the German American Club tries its best to bring the Munich festival of beer and bratwurst that is Oktoberfest to Louisville. And they do a damn good job of it. Their outdoor courtyard is lit, figuratively and literally, with fairy lights, the sound of polka and long lines for German beer and hearty German food. Get your grub on from 5 to 9 p.m. and hear from the Rheingold and Prost bands from festival start to festival end. Admission is a $5 membership to the German American Club. Kids 12 and under are free. —Danielle Grady
