The Octoberfest is a premier one day event which will offer many local breweries and wineries the opportunity to offer sampling of their products under the protection of a large tasting tent.  Along with the enjoyment of fine wine, an adjacent area of juried artists from around the Midwest will offer fine art for sale at many price points. Local food trucks along with a stage to provide musical background for a day of fun and enjoyment will be located in the Village Center area of Wentzville, alongside the Historical Society’s caboose.

Cash prizes will be awarded for the winning art pieces in the amount of $250 for Best in Show, $200 for 2nd place, and $150 for 3rd place.  A trophy will be awarded to the winner of the People's Choice award.
