Traditional German Dancing In A Festhallen


September 22 – October 14, 2023

The sounds of accordion music fill the air. Steins of cold beer wait for the first notes of Ein Prosit.
Old friendships are renewed as everyone gathers to Be Bavarian once more. Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest is back!

Tickets for the 55th annual Bavarian Festival are on sale now! 

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 restaurants!

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