An Oktoberfest to Remember!

This year, maybe more than ever before, we need to come together to celebrate community, heritage, friends + family and FUN!

Festival Countdown

September 24 to October 11

While Canada’s largest Bavarian Festival is taking a different form this year, we are committed to bringing as much of our favourite festival to you through virtual events, small gatherings and some very special contests. Onkel Hans and Tante Frieda are with us in spirit and we encourage everyone to don your Tracht, raise a stein, enjoy delicious Bavarian cuisine from our local restaurant partners, polka around and toast all that we love about Bavarian Culture and our communities.

Here’s to good times and good cheer, and to being back together next year. PROST!
