Oktoberfest Fort Worth is a three-day German festival so authentic you’ll forget you’re in Texas.

Oktoberfest Fort Worth guests enjoy traditional German food, bier, live music, dancing, shopping vendors and much more. The festival kicks off with Thursday’s ceremonial Tapping of the Kegs and the fun continues through Saturday with dachshund races, German-style competitions, Oktoberfest Olympics, the Oktoberfest Run und Ride, and more.

Entertainment will include traditional German music on multiple stages, from entertainers like Alpenmusikaten, Walburg Boys, Alpine Village Band, Das Ist Lustig and Auf Geht’s.

Traditional German food offerings such as bratwursts, pretzels, strudel, schnitzel and German potato pancakes will be available. Festival goers can enjoy the air-conditioned Spaten Hall as well as multiple outdoor and tented biergartens. Shopping vendors will be on hand with traditional German lederhosen or dirndl and a variety of other German accessories.

Reata Restaurant brings back its unique pop-up German dining option, Reata Haus. The VIP dining experience treats guests to an authentic three-course meal complete with non-alcoholic beverages, gratuity and air-conditioned seating. Other perks include complimentary festival admission and a commemorative stein.
