TOPSHAM — German beers and games will be on tap when Oktoberfest Maine returns to the Topsham Fairgrounds Saturday, Sept. 19.

The third annual event, presented by the Southern Midcoast Maine Chamber, will run from noon-7 p.m. Tickets are $10 per person in advance, or $15 at the gate. Parking at the 21-and-older event is free, and no pets are allowed.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the Mid-Coast Veterans Council.

Regional craft beers will be offered, along with a German concoction created by Lively Brewing Co. for this event. Those who want to give the stein a rest can dance to the Oktoberfest German Band, Up Stream Live and the Sweatin’ Bullets Band.

Competitions include keg throwing, stein hoisting, the best-dressed man and woman (Lederhosen and dirndl skirts recommended), and the longest facial hair.
