The Kiwanis Club of Yorkville will host its third annual Yorktoberfest from 3 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24, at Southbank BBQ in downtown Yorkville.

Yorktoberfest is described as the largest nonprofit event to come to the Fox River. The festival will feature food from Southbank Original BBQ, beer and live music by Frank K. Duo and Jeff and Kurt. All are invited to join in the festivities of the traditional German celebration of Oktoberfest with a unique Yorkville twist.

The stein-holding contest and music performances are free. This year’s musical lineup includes German polka music by Frank K. Duo from 3 to 5 p.m. and Jeff and Kurt from 7 to 10 p.m.

Yorktoberfest is presented by the Kiwanis Club of Yorkville, a chapter of the larger Kiwanis International Organization. The club aims to improve the world by making lasting differences in the lives of children. The club has partnered with Southbank Original BBQ for 2020.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Kiwanis Club of Yorkville Illinois Foundation, a nonprofit organization. The proceeds will be used to fund scholarships for local students who have shown a commitment to serving others within the community.
