Driving Directions

Martinsville Uptown presents the 2011 Oktoberfest International Arts and Culture Festival.  There will be two streets of vendors offering everything from free balloon animals to fine art, plus lots of kid-friendly activities including a scavenger hunt, inflatable bounce houses and a petting zoo.  The Big Chair Stage will feature performances from a steel drum band, a troupe performing traditional dances from India, and a Celtic band.  The second stage in "Little Germany" will boast an all day performance by a 30 person group of lederhosen-clad musicians and dancers performing music on instruments from the tuba to ringing cowbells.  "Little Germany" will also offer a beer garden selling domestic and imported beer as well as traditional german foods like delicious bratwurst.  Other food vendors will be found on both central uptown streets selling a variety of food from crepes to hamburgers, and you may see street performances like a jazz band, a dance troupe, a step show, even marching bagpipers.  Whether you are 2 or 92 or anywhere in-between, Oktoberfest will be a great day out for everyone.  We look forward to seeing you Uptown! (If you are interested in becoming a vendor at this great event, you can register online at MartinsvilleUptown.Net).
