This year we are having the traffic travel one way from Cook Street toward Mechanic Street. Please enter from Cook Street only. Travel to your site number, unload, then please move your vehicle and park up on Depot St. , which will be on your left, at the Municipal Building. Then proceed to put up your display. This will help with the flow of traffic and less confusion of vehicles going both ways and people trying to unload and set up in the street. Thank you for your cooperation in helping to make this a safe and pleasant set up and break down for everyone.
Please be prepared for any type of weather. It is highly recommended to weight down your tent to avoid damage to your product as well as others if it becomes windy. This can be done in several ways with bags of sand, kitty liter, water etc. Easily tied or bungee corded to the legs of your tent. The event is from 9 – 4 . Main Street is closed from 7 a.m. – 5 p.m. Suggested time for vendor set up is 7 a.m. when Main Street is closed.
Douglas Octoberfest Committee
The Douglas Octoberfest continues to be a huge success and it just keeps getting bigger and better.
The Douglas Octoberfest draws more people to the area than any other local event. Each year, the downtown street fair is attended by thousands who have permanently marked the Douglas Octoberfest on their calendars. The Douglas Octoberfest continues to be a huge success and it just keeps getting bigger and better. Come visit the best fall festival in the Blackstone Valley region, with local media offering high praise to the selection and diversity of the activities and quality of the entertainment offered.
Busy vendors line both sides of Main Street offering crafts, food, games, and unique displays that keep the crowds occupied until dusk. Entertainment throughout the day ranges from singers, bands, choral groups, dance routines, cheerleaders, and more. Rides and games are prominently displayed on the church lawn allowing easy access by families with small children. The Huge Slide, moonwalk, train, and obstacle course are always a great hit with our younger citizens. The cash cube is still a favorite and there are some wonderful and generous certificates and prizes to be won.
The Octoberfest celebration also provides a unique forum for local non-profits to raise funds in a way that's fun for all. Proceeds from many food booths, games, childrens' activities, and more go to support local community groups.
