Oktoberfest

About

Come to one of the best Oktoberfest celebrations in the nation! This traditional festival is modeled after one of the world’s largest celebrations, held each year for several centuries in Munich, Germany. New Ulm’s version takes place during the first two full weekends in October, with festivities happening all over town! The main locations for Oktoberfest are Historic Downtown, Green Mill/Best Western Plus, Morgan Creek Vineyards and Schell’s Brewery.

Oktoberfest is a joint festival of the New Ulm Best Western Plus, the New Ulm Chamber of Commerce, Morgan Creek Vineyards, and Schell's Brewery. The Best Western Plus' event features musical entertainment, including New Ulm's Concord Singers and a variety of bands, German goods for sale, and plenty of food and drink. Downtown will feature free bands in the streets both Saturdays, with plenty of food and drink available. Morgan Creek Vineyards hosts the ever-popular STOMP! New Ulm grape stomp the first Saturday, and Schell's Brewery will have music, food and drink the second Saturday.

Voted Best Oktoberfest in MN by WCCO, and ranked among the Best Oktoberfest Celebrations in the nation by Fodor's Travel (2014), Tripping.com (2015), Fox News (2016), Huffington Post (2016), Travel + Leisure (2017), USA TODAY (2017), and Food&Wine (2017).

Come see what's all the fuss is about!
