Oktoberfest big draw in Austintown

Austintown festival

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Awesometown Oktoberfest was back for its fifth year Sunday in Austintown.

The Organizer wanted to have one day a year where residents could come together at the township park to showcase the people, community and businesses.

“Everybody could come out and meet the people, get to know each other and talk about everything that is going on in Austintown with our new racino and everything,” said Mark Cole, event chairman. “It is just exciting to be a resident here.”

Businesses participating in the event are encouraged to donate to Awesometown, which in turn gives all proceeds to the Austintown Generational Enrichment Corporation.
