Celebrating its 30th anniversary, Addison’s Oktoberfest is the most authentic Oktoberfest celebration outside of Munich. This year, over 70,000 fans will come together September 14-17, 2017 to share a love of polka, German food and, of course, the same Paulaner Bier that will be served at Bavaria’s favorite festival. As a part of its award-winning tradition, Addison Oktoberfest will also feature much of the same music, polka dancing, and sing-a-longs one would find in Munich plus great German food and activities. Featured bands include the Munich Evergreens, who travel from Germany to perform, and Alex Meixner, Grammy Award-winning polka artist who gained international fame as the star of Hormel Pepperoni commercials. Oktoberfest guests will enjoy fun contests such as dachshund races, bier barrel bowling, a German Idol yodeling contest, a German spelling bee and more! Guests wanting a more intimate experience can register to dine at the Chamberlain’s Brau Haus, with full service Bavarian dining and an exclusive menu. Make an Oktoberfest weekend of it: book an Addison Oktoberfest Hotel Package which includes lodging, event admission tickets, Tasty Bucks and a commemorative stein– but book early, packages are limited.
