A beer festival to celebrate beer flavored beer! Enjoy as many beer samples as you responsibly can from over a dozen Midwest breweries and take home your Lagerfest 2021 stein as a souvenir. Meet the brewers who make your beer, join the stein holding competition, get funky with Sly Joe & the Smooth Operators, be amazed with wildly weird entertainment (fire dancers! goats! burlesque!) and have a lot of lager-filled laughs during the “3rd” Annual Fox Valley Lagerfest. We're shutting down a chunk of State Street in Appleton outside of McFleshman's Brewing Co. in order to properly party down.

The Pre-Party (Optional):
Get weird with us and join in on the Lagerfest Parade! We’re surrounding the ceremonial beer firkin in a half mile stroll down College Avenue. Think music, performers, newly adopted dogs, dancers, a mascot or two, brewers, lager lovers and other colorfully weird shenanigans! Bring your rainbow flags (National Coming Out Day is Oct 11) and Bavarian flags if you’ve got ‘em! Wear a costume, your best lederhosen or just bring a few fun costume pieces atop your everyday Lager-drinking street clothes. Small gifts and huge high fives will be given for best costumes and talents!

Meet in front of the Appleton Transit Center on W. Washington Street between 11:00-11:15 am to assemble. Parade will leave at 11:30 am. Parking available in the Yellow Ramp on corner of Morrison Street and Washington Street.

We should arrive on State Street by noon. McF’s taproom and food trucks will be ready to sell food and pints. We’ll also have some entertainment to keep you busy until Lagerfest officially starts at 1 pm!
