The Richmond Oktoberfest, the only authentic Fest of this type celebrated its 50 year Anniversary.

A Big Thank You from the Board of Directors of the Richmond Oktoberfest to all who attended the 50th Anniversary Oktoberfest in 2018. We hope that everyone had a great time.

Planning for next year’s Oktoberfest has started. We hope to see you again and many new faces next year. So please mark your calendar. Based on  recommendation of many we are moving the Oktoberfest from the third to the first week in October.

The next Richmond Oktoberfest has been scheduled for the

4th & 5th of OCTOBER 2019

The location will remain the Old Dominion Building at the Richmond Race Complex.

Thanks again for your help in making the Richmond Oktoberfest the only “Authentic” event of its kind in Greater Richmond.

Enjoy all the fun of our authentic Oktoberfest as recorded on this Youtube Video! (Run time 1min:30sec)


Since the first Oktoberfest in 1969, we strived to improve the event each year, and most importantly we do everything to insure that the Richmond Oktoberfest is authentic. This means a  Fest that includes all the elements that you would expect to find at a good Oktoberfest in Germany: Good food, good beer, great entertainment, and most of all a great atmosphere. All of this together creates what the Germans call “Gemütlichkeit”.
