Oktoberfest Returns to Vienna This Weekend

This Saturday (Oct. 6), Vienna will kick off its 11th annual Oktoberfest.

The festival will run from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. along Church St. in Vienna. Admission to the Oktoberfest is free, with a variety of food and alcohol vendors set up along the street.

Beer will be available from the Caboose beer garden, with wine offered at Vienna Vintner. Food will be sold at a German food beer garden and elsewhere.

Three stages will be set up across the Oktoberfest hosting entertainment like live German music and children’s shows.

Leashed dogs are allowed at the Oktoberfest as well, but owners should be aware that the crowds can be large and loud. Average Oktoberfest attendance ranges from 25,000-35,000 people.

There is no festival-specific parking lots. A shuttle will run to the festival from the Vienna Metro station and Madison High School.
