Addison’s Oktoberfest has been recognized by and large—and by Forbes and USA Today—as the most authentic Oktoberfest outside of Munich. Over 70,000 fans will come together this September to enjoy German food, dancing and the same Paulaner Bier that will be served at Bavaria’s favorite festival.

Every year, Plano Senior High German Dance team performs, so be sure to come out and show your Wildcat pride. Polka bands and other traditional entertainers will flock in from around the country to perform as well. There will be fun contests such as Dachshund races, bier barrel bowling, a German Idol yodeling contest, a German spelling bee and more. For a more private dining experience, register to eat at the Chamberlain’s Brau Haus, with full service Bavarian dining and an exclusive menu.

Book an Addison Oktoberfest Hotel Package which includes lodging, event admission tickets, Tasty Bucks and a commemorative stein, but book early—packages are limited.
