TILLAMOOK — The Monday Musical Club of Tillamook will host the third annual Oktoberfest in the Dairylands, noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8, at the Second Street Plaza in Tillamook.

The 2018 event promises to not only bring back a popular polka band born in Tillamook, but the professional and local dancers that thrilled attendees in 2017.

“This year we’re excited to bring back The Polkatones, the Tirolean Dancers of Oregon and local dancers from Oregon Coast Dance Center, but we also have local artists setting up booths and celebrating the arts and local culture,” said Adam Schwend, Monday Musical’s volunteer director of cultural events.

“This entire event is about supporting the arts in Tillamook County,” he said. “Every penny goes to supporting local music scholarships as well as bringing professional concerts to Tillamook multiple times per year.”

Tickets to Oktoberfest in the Dairylands are available at the gate or at the Monday Musical Club of Tillamook’s Facebook page. The cost is $10 and includes a commemorative mug. Admission is free for anyone under 21.
