FAQ's about Oktoberfest

September 30-October 1, October 7-8, October 14-15

Oktoberfest returns this October with longstanding traditions of music, dancing, and the ceremonial tapping of the kegs! This year we have new exciting changes and enhancements to Oktoberfest bringing the event throughout the town, with two fully programmed venues (beer gardens) located at the Leavenworth Festhalle and at Front Street Park. Sit under our clear-topped tent enjoying tasty beers, lively music and mountain views for days! With the outdoor dining and Oktoberfest celebrations happening at many establishments those weekends, you can literally celebrate Oktoberfest the way you want anywhere in town!

We are especially excited to bring our local breweries Icicle Brewing Co., Doghaus Brewery, and Blewett Brewing into the event to pour their beers (including a collaborative ale they are creating just for us) and we’ll have those classic imports from Germany too! For the kiddos a Kinderplatz has been added, with activities, games, a root beer garden just for them and new this year, a 42ft Ferris Wheel! After a two-year hiatus, it’s time to grab your best Trachten (traditional Bavarian garments) and make plans to celebrate Oktoberfest in America’s unofficial Bavarian capital.

Tickets are $10 on Fridays and $25 on Saturdays (includes both venues) and are on sale now, kids 12 and under will be free at the Festhalle und Kinderplatz!

Fun for the kiddos!

Games, crafts, activities and their very own root beer garden are just some of the festive fun things kids will be enjoying in this special playground just for them. New this year is a 42 foot Ferris Wheel for kids (and adults who still feel like a kid!) Come by and play!

Kinderplatz is open 6:00-8:30pm on Friday’s and Noon-8:30pm on Saturday’s.

The Leavenworth Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that the 2022 Oktoberfest is moving towards being a ZERO WASTE event! With compostable beer cups, biodegradable paper and no single use plastic utensils are just a few of the ways we are diverting waste from our area landfills!
