Oktoberfests in North America

Oktoberfests in North America{UPDATE, September 2021] The Munich Oktoberfest was cancelled for the second year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Most of the 2021 Oktoberfests in North America celebrations have been cancelled as well. A few are going forward and you’ll find them listed below. We’re keeping our list of North American Oktoberfests alive behind the scenes; when more is known, we will update this page. If you choose to attend an Oktoberfest celebration this fall, please follow local COVID guidelines, and check with the venue before traveling to the site.

Known as the world’s largest public festival, the Munich Oktoberfest is enjoyed each year by more than six million visitors. It runs for 16 days each year — three weekends and the days between — from late September into early October. Fortunately, for those of us who can’t make it to die Wiesn (‘the Meadow’) for the world’s biggest party, each year there are more than 150 Oktoberfests in North America — from New York to Seattle, and from Kitchener-Waterloo to Vancouver. With 16% of the US population and about 10% of Canadians claiming German ancestry, it’s no wonder the annual celebration of German culture, food and drink is such a popular annual event!
