Loudonville, Ohio – A beautiful outdoor setting, live music, 100 varieties of beer, food and more could only mean one thing. Oktoberfest has returned to Mohican! The Friends of Wolf Creek Grist Mill will host the largest fundraising event of the year on Saturday, September 24th, from noon until 11:30pm. This incredible fundraiser is full of food, rubber duck races, beer, wine, games and entertainment.
Mark Smith, President of Friends of Wolf Creek Grist Mill, states, “Oktoberfest for The Mill fundraiser has become such a popular event because unlike many Oktoberfest’s that only offer a limited selection of beer, we offer our event around 100 beers. There’s truly something for everyone to enjoy! Patrons love being able to sample any variety we offer so they can experience many different beers without having to commit to an entire glass or bottle of something they’ve never had before.”
For a $5.00 entry fee, each person that is 21 years old and over, has the opportunity to taste beers that range from seasonal selections, craft beers, local selections to include nearby craft brewers, international selections, ciders, gluten-free choices, draft and bottle selections. Oktoberfest will also include a nice selection of wines from D&D Smith Winery and Paper Moon Vineyards. Order tickets now on-line at WolfCreekMill.org and save: Buy 1 adult presale ticket, get 1 beer free. Pre-Sale tickets are also available at Lingenfelter Jewelers.

This is Wolf Creek Grist Mill’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Smith states, “Oktoberfest provides the opportunity for our visitors to enjoy a unique area event that at the same time helps us raise awareness, appreciation and funds for the project. Most importantly, every penny earned goes right back into funding the preservation and restoration efforts at Wolf Creek Grist Mill Historic Park and Museum to ensure this wonderful piece of history will be around for generations to come.”
