CHANDLER, Ariz. -- Fans of polka music, German food and craft beer will don their lederhosen and dirndls and gather in Historic Downtown Chandler on Saturday, September 24, to celebrate Oktoberfest 2011.

Polkas, bratwursts, brews, and oompah-pahs will be plentiful as Chandler does its best impersonation of Munich, Germany.

On Thursday, Bryan Winchel of Von Hanson Meats unveiled a delicious limited-edition SanTan Oktoberfest bratwurst, a signature-style bratwurst prepared with SanTan's Epicenter beer.

Chandler Okoberfest will be Saturday, Sept. 24, at 2 p.m., at AJ Chandler Park West near Arizona Avenue just south of Chandler Boulevard. Von Hanson’s Meats is located at 2390 N. Alma School Road in Chandler. For more information call 480-917-2525 or log onto www.vonhansonsmeats.net.
