Richmond Oktoberfest


50th Richmond Oktoberfest 2018

WHERE: Old Dominion Building, Richmond Raceway Complex

Admission: $15 at the door, $12 for advance purchase, $12 for Seniors 65 and over, $12 for active duty Military, National Guard and Reservists; Children 15 and under are FREE

To make certain that our afternoon patrons get the same Oktoberfest experience as those coming after 6:00 PM, our program will be structured in a way that assures the same balanced entertainment during the afternoon and evening. All stands will be open and operating, including the kitchen, the Bakery and, of course, the beer trailers.  We are also planning special afternoon activities for the children.  

 As always, we offer two days of Genuine German Oktoberfest entertainment, including traditional and modern German and American dance music, Bavarian folk dancing by the SGTEV Hirschjaeger dancers, beer stein hoisting contests each night for both men and women, and some of the best authentic German eating and drinking you can get.

 We provide a large selection of typical German foods, including sizzling Bratwurst straight from the grill, Knackwurst, Weisswurst, pork loin, roast chicken (Brathuhn), potato salad (Kartoffelsalat), our famous potato pancakes (Reibekuchen), Sauerkraut, spiced red cabbage (Rotkraut) and Landjaeger (a smoked sausage for nibbling with your beer).

Our beer comes from two great family owned breweries.  We are again importing the very popular Pilsner, Oktoberfest and Dunkel (dark) Warsteiner beers from the Cramer family brewery in Warstein, Germany.  This brewery has been operated by the Cramers since 1753.  Not quite as old is the Yuengling Brewery in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, which is now in the fifth generation of Yuengling family ownership, since it was opened by David Gottlieb Yuengling, a German immigrant, in 1829.  We are proud to offer Yuengling Lager, and Yuengling Oktoberfest, from the oldest brewery in the USA. Just for you wheat beer lovers, we are also importing König Ludwig Weissbier Hell (also known as “Royal Bavarian Hefe-Weizen”) from the König Ludwig Schlossbrauerei (castle brewery) in Bavaria. By the way, in German “hell” means “clear,” “bright” or “shining.”

Recognizing that not everyone drinks beer, not even at Oktoberfest, we also have a selection of very good domestic and German wines. And for those who don't drink wine and those under age, we serve coffee, water, a variety of soft drinks, and even chocolate milk.

For those who want authentic German pastries and breads, or for those who just have a sweet tooth, Reinecker's Bakery, in Macedonia, Ohio, is again bringing a big truckload of their German baked goods.  Visiting our Reinecker Bakery is like stepping into a one of the best "Backerei" or "Konditerei" in Germany.

Since the up coming Oktoberfest will be the 50th Anniversary, we plan many surprises. The actual program will be announced later. The Richmond Oktoberfest strives to be a family event, with a lot of dancing fun, and a lot of great German food, beer, and baked goods.
