The Columbus Oktoberfest has been brewing up Gemutlichkeit and serving smiles for nearly 60 years. There truly is something for everyone. Tasty food, lively music, bountiful brews, and games galore. The Columbus Oktoberfest has it all. Bier Halls with ample dance floors, a delightful Wine Garten, a giant Kinderplatz (children's area) in the beautiful Natural Resources park, (also home to our Gemutlichkeit Strength competitions) an eclectic Marktplatz presented by Giant Eagle for arts and crafts shopping, a full entertainment line up on three stages, a Meiler Vier (4 mile run/walk) and of course delicious brats, cream puffs and all the other traditional items you expect. We invite you to celebrate "Gemutlichkeit" with us, a time that celebrates the spirit of enjoying life like none other. We hope to see you here!
