The Richmond Oktoberfest, the only authentic Fest of this type for over 50 years.

Dear Oktoberfest Fans!
The Oktoberfest Board of Directors thanks everyone who visited the 51st Richmond Oktoberfest for their participation. We hope that you had a great time.

As in the past, a representative of the German Embassy in Washington, D.C. and his family enjoyed the Richmond Oktoberfest as you can take from the thank-you note (Dankesschreiben).

Planning for the 52nd Oktoberfest is in full swing. We hope to see you again and many new faces next year.

So please mark your calendar!

The next Richmond Oktoberfest, the 52nd, has been scheduled for the

2nd & 3rd of OCTOBER, 2020
Friday 6:00PM to 11:00PM
Saturday 3:00PM to 11:00PM

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.

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”.
