Event Details

Oktoberfest Family Event - September 23 - 24 - Norfolk Area Chamber

Oktoberfest Family Festival is an annual must attend event on The River Point in Downtown Norfolk.

Oktoberfest started in 1810 in Bavaria to celebrate the wedding of Prince Ludwig I. Today, residents in Northeast Nebraska celebrate their German heritage and the fall harvest during this two-day family festival. With German food, a beer garden, live music, and family entertainment, this Downtown Norfolk family event gets better every year.
