Elk Creekside Event Venue

Check back for 2023 updates!

Since 2020, we’ve had some unique challenges thrown our way. We always held the Millheim Oktoberfest event in the parking lot and field behind the Millheim Fire Company – which made sense because the proceeds were donated to them. Our cafe wasn’t spacious enough to handle dining restrictions. Being the strong community that we are, the Millheim Fire Company wanted to help and allowed us to set up our tents early and hold music and food events outdoors throughout the summer and fall.

It’s turned out to be a big hit with locals and visitors and we’ve been fortunate to continue holding outdoor events on weekends through the summer and fall of this year. Come check out our next outdoor event!

How it works

Most of our Elk Creekside events are free. A limited selection of Elk Creek beer is available on tap in the beer tent – usually a few everyday favorites and a seasonal craft beer or two. We use the Millheim Fire Company’s food trailer to whip up meals. The menu is different from our Cafe menu as we do not have a full kitchen to work with. Check out our facebook page or menu page the week before events to see what we’ll be serving up.

What to Bring

Seating and tables are available under the tent – no reservation needed, but you’re welcome to bring a blanket or chairs. The hillside offers great seating for enjoying the bands and letting your little ones move around.

What not to Bring

Outside beverages and food. Sorry, but our alcohol license is for our beer only. Please get your beverages from our beer tent. As for the food…well, let’s not be rude. We put a lot of time and effort into planning the music, creating a menu and staffing the event. Try it Mikey! You’ll like it.
