Three covered stages host a continuous parade of entertainers.

Oktoberfest attracts many visitors just for the shopping opportunities. Over 45 juried artisans from across the state fill two big tents, offering their best arts and collectibles. In yet another tent, a select group of hill country artists will be selling their fine art to the public in a rare showing. Many find it the ideal opportunity to start their holiday shopping with many unique, handmade gift items.
Of course the best of any celebration in Fredericksburg is the hearty menu of delicious German and Mexican-American foods. Over a dozen vendors will be sizzling up fajitas, tacos, burgers and fries, as well as a variety of sausage on a stick and plates with kraut, Cajun goodies, strudel, plus other scrumptious surprises. Adventurous tasters can sample over 30 varieties of American, Texan and imported beers.
Oktoberfest is great fun for the youngsters as well. Kids can play to their heart’s content on the Bungee Jump, Jumping Castle, and other fun games and activities right on the grounds.
Since its inception in 1981, Oktoberfest has been sponsored by the Pedernales Creative Arts Alliance. Community volunteers provide the labor, and all funds are used for student scholarships and to support the local arts. Oktoberfest hours are 6 pm to 12 midnight Friday, 10 am to 12 midnight Saturday, and 11 am to 6 pm Sunday. Admission is $6, $1 for children 6-12, and under 6 free.
