Tinley Park has a longstanding history with strong German roots. To celebrate these roots and keep history alive, the Tinley Park Chamber of Commerce has brought an authentic Oktoberfest to the local community for the past several years. 

The third annual Tinley Park Oktoberfest will kick off Friday, Sept. 6, with a ceremonial keg tapping and will run through Sunday, Sept. 8, at the 80th Avenue Metra Station, located at 18001 S. 80th Avenue.
