Nashville Oktoberfest


Nashville's annual Oktoberfest features traditional German music, food, and beer, in Historic Germantown every October. 

The Beer

The Oktoberfest Beer Tastings feature over a dozen different beers from some of the finest breweries in the world. To name a few from the past, the Paulaner Hefe Weizen, Paulaner Oktoberfest Marzen, Hacker Pschorr Munich Gold, and more have been available to try.

The Nashville Oktoberfest 5K Bier Run goes through beautiful Germantown, Bicentennial Mall, and the Nashville Farmers' Market. All pre-registered racers receive a t-shirt and a beer of their choice.

Oktoberfest Parade
October 7

We love our dogs at Oktoberfest! While the dachshunds take center stage in the Dachshund Derby on Sunday, all dogs are welcome to participate in the Annual Pup Parade. Owners and their pets, dressed in costume, parade in front of the Main Stage at the corner of 5th Ave N and Jefferson Street.
