Douglas County Oktoberfest events are a yearly tradition that draw residents and visitors from near and far. If you’ve never been to a Douglas County Oktoberfest event, you’re missing a great opportunity to enjoy food, dancing, music and much more!

What is Oktoberfest?

In Munich, Bavaria, Germany, Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival that takes place every year between mid to late September and early October. Millions of people attend the event in Germany each year. Because it’s such a popular and enjoyable festival, many cities and towns around the world host their own version of Oktoberfest each year. In most locations outside of Germany, the festival takes place over one or two weekends. Traditionally, an Oktoberfest event includes various amusement rides, games, contests, traditional German food and beer, German music and dancing.
