Oktoberfest at Ober Gatlinburg
September 22 - October 29
Ober Gatlinburg’s 8th Annual Oktoberfest will be held from September 22-October 29, 2017. This beloved event takes place every October and celebrates some of the time-honored traditions of the original Oktobertfest in Munich, Germany. There are plenty of activities and lots of fun to be had by visitors of all ages.
One of the highlights of OktOBERfest is the food. Most of the food is German inspired and is derived from recipes and cuisine from traditional Bavarian festivals. Cuisine includes but is not limited to schnitzel, bratwurst, strudel, turkey legs, pretzels and sauerkraut. During this month-long celebration, along with multiple daily shows, our Seasons Of Ober Restaurant switches to their OktOBERfest menu. If German food isn’t for you, there are other eateries on site that will offer meals suited to your taste and overall budget.
Along with the authentic German cuisine and beer, you can also look forward to outdoor games and the Bavarian Fun Makers Oompah Band. The band dresses in authentic lederhosen while performing traditional Bavarian folk dances, oompah music, sing-a-longs, yodels, and more! They have multiple performances daily during OktOBERfest
And, of course, along with great memories, you’ll want to take home souvenirs of this month-long celebration. We have a wide variety of OktOBERfest souvenir apparel, gifts and accessories available in our outdoor vendor tent.
