Presented by Miller Lite, this community event boasts a dazzling array of artisans, unique foods, ample domestic, international and craft beers, kid-friendly art activities, live music on two stages, international wines and so much more! Oktoberfest includes a fully covered Main Stage viewing area and an expanded Craft Beer tent with big-screen TVs for all the weekend football action. The ACCO Brands FamilyFest provides free art activities for the kids, from noon – 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
The annual Oktoberfest Preview Party, presented by Premier Health, takes place on the Friday of Oktoberfest weekend, 7:00 - 11:00 p.m. Guests enjoy complimentary draft beer and wine, live entertainment and great socializing in a casual, less-crowded atmosphere.
Join us on Friday of Oktoberfest weekend, 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., for brats, metts, dogs and live entertainment. There’s no charge to enter the grounds for this special lunch hosted by The Dayton Art Institute’s Associate Board Alumni. Head to the main tent closest to the river; food and drink will be available for purchase. You may also buy your event tickets, mugs & tees while you are here. We tap the main beer truck for the event.
