September – Wauktoberfest
Wauktoberfest is a 3-day celebration of Waunakee’s German heritage which serves as a fundraiser whose proceeds are donated to several local charities including the Waunakee Community Foundation, Waunakee Rotary Club, Waunakee Lions Club, and the Knights of Columbus Council 6371. Over the three days of the event there are activities, contests including Hammerschlagen presented annually by Simon Builders, music, and food tents.
We encourage you to visit on Sunday, September 16 and join Michael F Simon Builder’s 125th Anniversary Celebration by participating, tasting, and voting for the winning homebrew beer in the first Homebrew Beer contest. The grand champion homebrewer will be awarded a trip for two to Munich’s 2019 Oktoberfest which will include airfare, hotel, and admission into Oktoberfest from Simon Builders.
