The Annual Richmond Oktoberfest is the largest German / American Oktoberfest festival in the state of Virginia, playing host to nearly 5,000 people over the two day indoor event. This event is a sample of German Bavarian culture at its best. It's for the whole family to enjoy. Don't have a babysitter? Don't worry. Children up to a certain age are admitted for free (visit the Facts page for specific age requirements). The Chicken dance is and always has been a favorite of the kids (young and old).
At the Richmond Oktoberfest, in the heated / air conditioned Old Dominion building you will find the entire exhibition hall decorated in traditional German flare. The Hall is filled with long running tables and cocktail tables, where you can stand, drink your beer, and be close to the source.
There is a band stage and large dance floor at the center of attention, and decorated Alpine Chalet booths offering a variety of German Foods including: Bratwurst, Knockwurst, Broiled Chicken, Pork Roast, & Sauerkraut, Breads & Pastries, Warm, Pretzels, Potato Pancakes, German and American beer and wine, Soft Drinks, Coffee, Bottled Water, Souvenir merchandise, and much more...
