Oktoberfest Chippewa Falls has been providing a family-friendly German heritage event in the Chippewa Valley for 20 years. This year, visitors will be greeted with new kids’ activities and Glockenspiel acts. Plus, some of our favorite competitions, such as stein holding, sauerkraut eating, and keg rolling.

What to Expect

The weekend fun kicks off with the introduction of our Festmeister and Festmeisterin at the Leinenkugel grounds at 12:00 PM on Friday. Then, the Golden Keg procession to the Northern Wisconsin State Fairgrounds and the tapping of the Golden Keg. Festival goers can enjoy four stages, over 30 entertainers, vendors, authentic foods, plenty of dancing and Gemutlichkeit! Prost to 2023!
