Addison Oktoberfest has been recognized as one of the most authentic Oktoberfest celebrations outside of Munich for over three decades. This year, over 50,000 fans will come together September 19-22, 2019, to share a love of polka, German food and, of course, the same Paulaner Bier that will be served at Bavaria's favorite festival. Dozens of polka bands and other traditional entertainers from around the country perform with continuous entertainment on multiple stages. Returning this year is Grammy-nominated polka performer Alex Meixner – better known to fans as the Hormel Pepperoni one-man band. Oktoberfest guests, who visit Addison from all over the Southwest and beyond, will enjoy fun contests such as dachshund races, bier barrel rolling, a German Idol yodeling contest, a German spelling bee and more! Guests wanting a more intimate experience can purchase a seat in the Chamberlain's Brau Haus, with full-service Bavarian dining and an exclusive menu.
