Addison Oktoberfest Celebrates 35 Years as the Country’s Best Bavarian Blast

Addison Oktoberfest Celebrates 35 Years as the Country's Best Bavarian BlastProst to 35 years of Addison Oktoberfest! The four-day festival has been recognized as one of the most authentic Oktoberfest celebrations outside of Munich since its inception more than three decades ago. Each year, people come together to revel in German culture, food, music and bier, enjoying a taste of the original Oktoberfest with a purely Texan twist.

Experience Addison Circle Park amid the sounds of polka bands and other traditional entertainers on three stages, and participate in special games for bier lovers, kinder folk, dachshunds and more.  Dance in the Partyhalle, a 30,000-square-foot open-air tent with a performance stage, dancefloor and seating for over 1,000. Guests who want to up their Partyhalle experience can purchase tables on the Spectrum Reach Partyhalle Deck on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Tables come with admission for eight guests, along with a commemorative .5L stein, beverage token, and souvenir lapel pin for each guest.

Oktoberfest guests, who visit Addison from all over the Southwest and beyond, will enjoy fun contests such as dachshund races, bier barrel rolling, Masskrugstemmen (stein holding), Biergarten Bingo and more. The event offers fun for all ages, with special activities for kids, and unique shopping opportunities in the Marktplatz. Don’t forget your dirndl and lederhosen – dressing for the occasion is enthusiastically encouraged.

Make an Oktoberfest weekend of it: Book an Addison Oktoberfest Hotel Package, which includes quality lodging, two event admission tickets, two commemorative pins, two commemorative .5L steins and two Paulaner biers – but book early, as packages are limited.

It’s a part of the town’s efforts to make Addison Oktoberfest the most authentic Oktoberfest celebration in North America.
