Traditional German Dancing In A Festhallen

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 23 to October 15, 2022

We can’t wait to bring back Canada’s largest Bavarian Festival this year, better than EVER, with our Official Keg Tapping on Friday, October 7th in Downtown Kitchener! Onkel Hans and Tante Frieda are excited to see you all don your Tracht, raise a stein, polka around, and enjoy delicious Bavarian cuisine from our German Clubs and local restaurant partners!

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