The German heritage of Fredericksburg Texas comes full circle during Oktoberfest.  Oktoberfest means song and dance, feasting, and games - all played with the best of our ole Texas Gemutlichkeit.  Lederhosen-clad gentlemen and big-skirted ladies kick up their heels to the lively music and good Bavarian cheer.  And folks always save room for the ethnic Texas cuisine, including German, Mexican-American, and American - and imported beer.  

Fredericksburg's Oktoberfest celebrations started up in 1981.  The town's Marktplatz is the site of the decade's-long tradition.  Festivities include a full calendar of vibrant events and activities.  Oktoberfest promises downhome entertainment, interesting exhibitions, contests, and tents of juried artisans displaying their work.  Fun activities for the children add something new every year.  

During the celebratory weekend in October, Fredericksburg rolls out the red carpet for exciting groups such as the Czech Folk Dancers of West and Cadence Cloggers, contests like the Dominoes tournament, many laughs at events like the Oktubafest, and the wild Chicken Dance Around the Square.  It's the time to polka and waltz 'til the legs are weary and the heart's a beating hard.


Admission to Oktoberfest is minimal at $6 for adults.  Children 6-12 are $1 and it's free for children under 6.  Creative Arts Alliance sponsors the festival.  Proceeds go to support the local arts and student scholarships.  It could not happen without a cadre of community volunteers.
