Be German for a night at the 50th Annual Richmond Oktoberfest! This is the oldest and most authentic Oktoberfest celebration in Virginia.
Patterned after Munich’s world famous Oktoberfest, the Richmond Oktoberfest combines a great party with the preservation of our German heritage.
To celebrate our 50th Anniversary, we have two feature band, not just one. They are "Die Lustigen Almdudler" from Rochester, New York, and “The Continentals” from Washington, D.C. In addition, we have our fine local band, the Sauerkrauts.

Everything combines to create Bavarian style "Gemütlichkeit".
