As Chattanooga’s oldest and largest Oktoberfest celebration, our festival draws crowds locally and regionally each year. Many come to enjoy the sights, smells, and sounds of the German traditions, bringing their families for a day of entertainment, shopping, and live musical performances at the Chattanooga Market.
The annual festival includes an array of Oktoberfest traditions: brats and other German inspired foods, a 5k fun run, four bier gartens featuring over 99 local and season craft brews, and the infamous Wurstbrats Oompah Band!
For an additional day of artistic fun, join us for Chattanooga Artoberfest — a chalk-art competition held the Wednesday before the festival. It’s youth-friendly, and the art has been quite dazzling in the past.
