Be German for a night at the 44th Annual Richmond Oktoberfest! This is the oldest and best Oktoberfest celebration in Virginia.
Patterned after Munich’s world famous Oktoberfest,the Richmond Oktoberfest combines a great party with the preservation of our German heritage. Eat authentic German food and drink a variety of German & domestic beers. Dance to polkas, waltzes, American standards and more by our feature band, “Die Lustigen Almdudler” from Rochester, New York and our fine local bands, the European Wind Ensemble and the Sauerkrauts. Enjoy folk dancing by the Hirschjäger Bavarian Dancers; the crowning of the new Oktoberfest Queen; singing by the Gesangverein Virginia Männerchor; good German food, German pastries by Reinecker’s Backerei in Macedonia, Ohio; beer & wine; shopping opportunities for things German, and the Kinder Korner with face painting and other children’s activities. Everything combines to create Bavarian style “Gemütlichkeit”.
