Hermann Oktoberfest


Held every weekend in October, the Hermann Oktoberfest has become a beloved tradition for thousands throughout the Midwest. It’s time to celebrate a beautiful time of year in Missouri’s most beautiful town.

  

Oktoberfest happens all four October weekends. But Hermann’s wineries, restaurants, shops and museums are all open during the week, minus the crowds. You might even find a great lodging deal.
