Coming Soon—Saturday AND Sunday
October 14th and 15th
The Chattanooga Market will present its 22nd annual Chattanooga Oktoberfest® with a 2-day festival on Saturday, October 14th and Sunday, October 15th. The weekend is a celebration that is uniquely Chattanoogan and includes lively German accents, bringing back thousands of Chattanooga Oktoberfest fans each year. It’s a chance to dress up in German costume—kids and adults alike—and chicken dance the day (or evening) away while enjoying the season’s first brat or German beer.
The traditional Chattanooga Market vendors will be a part too, both Saturday and even more on Sunday. Hundreds of makers, farms, and food artisans participate to make the weekend a festive day of entertainment and shopping. Shoppers can expect seasonal treats such as Bavarian pretzels, apple streudel, apple cider and fall produce.
Admission to this annual event is free, making it truly a fall festival not-to-miss. German attire is highly encouraged; fedora hats, and other German accessories will be sold at the festival.
Together with media partners HITS96 and Sunny 92.3, the center stage will be active all weekend long with live music and games for all ages. Favorites are the stein hoisting contest, brat toss and the beer stein race with prizes awarded for winners.
Saturday evening at 7pm, under the main tent, the annual Mr. and Ms. Chattanooga Oktoberfest Contest will be held and emcee’d by Natalie and Gino of HITS96. An applause-based, casual and fun contest, it’s a “see and be seen” sort of event. Interested individuals simply report to the tent at 6:45pm to jump into the fun.
FOOD + DRINK:
Chattanooga Oktoberfest® is known for an expansive selection of local and seasonal beers, with dozens of different varieties. Guests can enjoy the covered Bier Garten with plenty of seating. A commemorative beer stein will be sold to handle plenty of refills at the many beer booth locations.
