Named one of the country's most authentic Oktoberfest celebrations by Forbes and USA Today, Addison Oktoberfest features four days of family-oriented entertainment. German entertainers in authentic costumes perform traditional Bavarian folk dances, schuhplatten, oompah music, sing-a-longs, yodels and more. A special Oktoberfest Paulaner Bier is served along with several types of German sausage, sauerkraut, strudel, giant pretzels and more. There are carnival rides, midway games, and children's entertainment. Guests can and register to dine at the Chamberlain's Brau Haus for a full service dining experience featuring an exclusive menu.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, Addison's Oktoberfest is the most authentic Oktoberfest celebration outside of Munich. This year, over 70,000 fans will come together September 14-17, 2017 to share a love of polka, German food and, of course, the same Paulaner Bier that will be served at Bavaria's favorite festival. As a part of its award-winning tradition, Addison Oktoberfest will also feature much of the same music, polka dancing, and sing-a-longs one would find in Munich plus great German food and activities.


While often questioned about hosting a festival called Oktoberfest during the month of September, the festival is always timed to open the same weekend as the Munich celebration, as a part of the town's efforts to make Addison Oktoberfest the most authentic Oktoberfest celebration in North America.


Dozens of polka bands and other traditional entertainers from around the country perform with continuous entertainment on multiple stages. Featured bands include the Munich Evergreens, who travel from Germany to perform, and Alex Meixner, Grammy Award-winning polka artist who gained international fame as the star of Hormel Pepperoni commercials. Oktoberfest guests, who visit Addison from all over the Southwest and beyond, will enjoy fun contests such as dachshund races, bier barrel bowling, a German Idol yodeling contest, a German spelling bee and more! Guests wanting a more intimate experience can register to dine at the Chamberlain's Brau Haus, with full service Bavarian dining and an exclusive menu.


Make an Oktoberfest weekend of it: book an Addison Oktoberfest Hotel Package which includes lodging, event admission tickets, Tasty Bucks and a commemorative stein? but book early, packages are limited.
