About Oktoberfest

Mark your calendars for the largest fall attraction in Chippewa Falls, September 16 + 17, 2022!

Chippewa Falls Oktoberfest has been providing a family-friendly German heritage event in the Chippewa Valley for 18 years. 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, over 30 entertainers, vendors, authentic foods, and plenty of dancing. Gemutlichkeit! Prost to 2021!
