Chippewa Falls Oktoberfest has been providing a family-friendly German heritage event in the Chippewa Valley for 17 years. Although we had to take a pause in 2020, our committees have been hard at work to make 2021 better than ever. This year will bring new kids’ activities and Glockenspiel acts, as well as some of our favorite competitions, such as stein holding, sauerkraut eating, and keg rolling.
We plan to kick off the weekend with our Festmeister and Festmeisterin being announced at the Leinenkugel grounds at 12:00 noon on Friday, followed by the Golden Keg procession to the Northern Wisconsin State Fairgrounds and the tapping of the Golden Keg. Festival goers can enjoy four stages with over 30 entertainers for all ages, vendors, authentic foods, and plenty of dancing. Gemutlichkeit! Prost to 2021!
