We invite you to join us for another incredible celebration of Bavarian culture at the 2017 Linde Oktoberfest Tulsa.
Linde Oktoberfest Tulsa brings the best of Bavarian culture back to Tulsa October 19-22 at River West Festival Park, 2100 S. Jackson Ave.
Named a Top Ten Oktoberfest by USA Today and Condé Nast Traveler Magazine, Linde Oktoberfest features 40,000 square feet of decorated entertainment and bier Zelts (tents), with more than 80 bier selections, authentic German food, live music, an arts and crafts MarktHaus, carnival rides, and German-themed games and pop-up activities.
Bands traveling from Germany to perform include Dorfrocker, Edwelweiss Show Band, and Sepp Diepholder. A full lineup of German bands from Florida, Texas and Ohio are scheduled along with local Tulsa favorites.
Das Glockenspiel will return featuring live performances every hour from their double decker stage with specialty drinks served from a full-service bar below.
The expanded kids’ area, Das KinderPlatz, will host an entertainment Zelt, Das JugendZelt, and Grünflächen (green space) for families to gather in throughout the day. Das JugendZelt will offer activities for children each day, including magic shows, live music, a science show, Lego building, sand art and face painting.
Other popular events include Siegi’s World Championship sausage eating competition, the Parade of the Wieners for the Dachshund Dash, the bier barrel races and stein hoisting competitions. New for 2017 will be the Hofbrauhaus, featuring an authentic German buffet in a sit-down, reservations-only setting. Enjoy a full brat or schnitzel dinner paired with famous Hofbrau biers, great music and authentic decor.
The commemorative bier stein will be offered again this year. The German Maßkrug is a one-litre (33.8 fl ounce) stein, and the smaller 16-fl ounce KleinKrug stein is also available.
