Like previous events (e.g., Atlanta Christkindl Market), the Octoberfest is organized and managed by the GA Events and GAC-F in partnership with Buckhead Village District by Jamestown LLP. It is a fundraiser for our non-profit organization.
The Octoberfest is following an old tradition from Germany. It is held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany and is the world’s largest Volksfest, featuring a beer festival and a travelling funfair. It is a 16- to 18-day folk festival running traditionally from mid- or late-September to around the first Sunday in October, with more than six million international and national visitors attending the event. Locally, it is called d’Wiesn, after the colloquial name for the fairgrounds, Theresienwiese. The Octoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture, having been held since the year 1810. Other cities across the world also hold Octoberfest celebrations that are modeled after the original Munich event. During the event, large quantities of Octoberfest Beer are consumed. Visitors also enjoy numerous attractions, games, and a wide variety of traditional foods.
The First Atlanta Octoberfest Event will be held from Friday, October 21st, 2022, until Sunday, October 30th, 2022.
We plan to have 25 to 30 booths at Octoberfest and an attendance between 50,000 and 75,000 visitors! There will be additional events organized, such as the GAC-F Octoberfest Fun Run, entertainment, music performances, games, and many more.
