Whether you spell it ‘Oktoberfest’ or ‘Octoberfest’, you can find a celebration somewhere in Northeast Wisconsin.  More than 40% of Wisconsin residents report that they are partly or fully German, which means this is the most common heritage in our state and we know how to celebrate it the right way.   So, grab your beer stein and let yourself enjoy the German brews, the sights of lederhosen, the smell of bratwurst and the sounds of the German musik at one of the following events!

(If there are any other Oktoberfest celebrations, just email me at northeastwiactivities@gmail.com with the details and I will add it! Thanks.)
