Oktoberfest at Ober Gatlinburg 2015

Sept 25- Nov 2, 2015

  Ober Gatlinburg is celebrating October with a fantastic festival featuring Bavarian-style food, drink and music, but you don’t have to don your finest lederhosen or dirndls to be a part of the fun.

 Octoberfest returns to its Gatlinburg-style roots with 38 days of merrymaking from September 25 through Nov. 2, 2015 as the resort commemorates the 205th anniversary of the popular festival held in Munich, Germany.The Bavarian Fun Makers Band, in authentic costumes, will perform traditional Bavarian folk dances,schuhplattling, oompah music, sing-a-longs, yodels and more with daily shows and multiple performances every day during Oktoberfest.  Special Oktoberfest Biers will be served along with traditional German wurst, schnitzel, sauerkraut, strudel, pretzels and more.

Oktoberfest was a popular event when the Heidelberg Castle operated its restaurant at Ober Gatlinburg in the 1980s.The first Oktoberfest was not really a festival at all, but the public celebration of the wedding of Crown Prince Ludwig I and Princess Therese of Bavaria on October 17, 1810. Held on a large meadow named the Theresienwiese in Munich, the party featured a horse race, beer, food, music and dancing. 

 If you have not had the chance to visit during October this is an amazing time to come visit our gorgeous area.  From business to business everyone participates in beautiful fall decor and festivities of the fall season. The smells of pumpkin spice and apples fill the air. Please call or visit our website and reserve your stay to experience fall in a true Southern fashion. We hope to see you very soon!
