The 51st Annual Richmond Oktoberfest is changing dates to the first weekend of October. Come celebrate at the only authentic Oktoberfest in central Virginia. This year the featured band is the renowned Oktoberfest Party Band ”Die Lustigen Almdudler” from Syracuse, New York. The program will be rounded off by the well known local brass band “The ACCA Sauerkrauts” and the Hirschjäger Bavarian Dancers. The keyboard player Dan Smith will entertain in the outdoor “Bier Garten”. The entertainment will be highlighted with the traditional march of the regional German Societies, the crowning of the Oktoberfest Queen, and the popular Beer Stein Hoisting Contest.
A great variety of German and domestic beers will be on hand, and the wine stand offers a selection of German wine. We also provide coffee, soft drinks and water. Our kitchen personnel will serve the best authentic German dishes, such as bratwurst, knackwurst, weisswurst, roast pork, and chicken, as well as sauerkraut and red cabbage.
The snack bar offers the well liked German snack called “Landjäger”, pretzels, authentic German Potato pan cakes, German wieners and French fries.
