Sierra Vista's largest fall festival happens during the traditional harvest time. Visitors can enjoy rich authentic German and ethnic cuisines available from food Oktoberfest in Sierra Vista AZ vendors. Adults can enjoy the beer garden, and kids will have plenty of activities.

Live entertainment will include an “oompah” band and dancers wearing lederhosen & dirndl dancers. There will be a carnival and displays depicting German culture, rides, kid's carnival, arts and crafts, German cuisine and more!

Why Oktoberfest in September? In October 1810, Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig I married Princess Therese. That year, the festivities lasted 5 days. But of course, 5 days isn’t enough time to enjoy the music, singing, eating and drinking! As years went on, the festivities lasted longer and began earlier to take advantage of Germany’s nicer weather in September. So, the 16-day celebration takes place up to and including the first Sunday in October.
