You came to Oktoberfest in Fredericksburg.  Was it for the food?  These potato pancakes, made by Kiwanis Club members,  are a favorite.

The final musical act is traditionally Bill Smallwood leading the Polkamatics.  Many people come to hear bands and music not widely available from German and Czech bands. In this short video clip, you can see just how much fun everyone enjoys throughout Oktoberfest!

Did You Come for the Beer Selection?

Many visitors to Oktoberfest developed a taste for German beer while in the military in Germany, and they aren’t disappointed by the selection of imported beer.  Craft beers from around the state and domestic favorites fill out the huge offering of more than 60 beers spread over three bars.

Maybe you came to Oktoberfest because you know that The Kinder Park is the place to take your kids and grandkids. The high striker is always busy, as well as a climbing wall for kids and games for younger children.

Did You Come to See the Friendly and Funny Volunteers?

Perhaps you came because Oktoberfest in Fredericksburg is run by volunteers of the Pedernales Creative Arts Alliance – 1300 of them – and they’re having fun because you are! Proceeds from the event fund a monthly music program on the grounds and scholarships for local students in the arts.

Get in the Act!

Visitors to Oktoberfest in Fredericksburg don’t just drink beer, eat food, and watch music, they dance and frolic and become part of the show. This group of German Schuhplattlers doesn’t just present a show, they make you part of it.

Oktoberfest in Fredericksburg will be back the first full weekend in Oktober, see you next year!
