Fairfield First Fridays Celebrates Oktoberfest with Online Activities and Streaming Live Music.

  While normally there would be music, vendors, wiener dog races and more in Central Park, the activities for this year will be online for the October 2nd  Oktoberfest event.

The Wiener dog races have been postponed and will hopefully be able to be held at a later date. The champion from last year needs to be able to defend their title! 

This year since we are not able to hold the races at this time, we will be holding a Wiener/Wiener Wannabe photo contest.  Send in your best picture of your beautiful dog, whether wiener or wiener wanna be, and be entered to win prizes!  Send us those photos! The winner will be picked by the number of likes for each picture.  Make sure you have your friends like the photos! Get the pictures in early!  We will create an album for the participants. 

We will have a German recipe contest!  Usually we have a German Chocolate Cake contest, this year, because we are not able to get together for this event, we are asking you to send in your best German recipes.  Feel free to include pictures!  Sending us your recipe will enter you into a drawing for prizes!

For the younger (or young at heart) Oktoberfest participants, we have created a few coloring pages.  You can print them off or pick them up at Community 1st Credit Union.  Color them, or decorate them in any way you would like and send us a picture of your art work to be entered into a drawing to win some great prizes. You can also drop them off at Community 1st Credit Union and they will put them on display! Link for coloring pages.

The band, The Boys, will be streaming a live performance from 7 to 8:30 on Friday October 2nd ,of their original music for all to enjoy.  A link to watch the live performance will be posted on our website and social media pages.  If you have heard the band before you know they always put on a great show, if you have not heard them before you are in for a treat!

We would like to thank Community 1st Credit Union for their sponsorship, many years of continued support and ideas for this annual event!  We would also like to thank the Fairfield Convention and Visitors Bureau for their continued support with each of our monthly events. 

Get to coloring, digging through those recipes and snapping pictures of those pooches!
