Norfolk Oktoberfest Family Festival
September 29, 2017 - September 30, 2017
Norfolk Oktoberfest Family Festival is going on its 6th year as a 2-day festival in Downtown Norfolk. The purpose of this festival is to celebrate the fall harvest and the German Heritage of our community. A wide range of events take place over the course of the two days, including stein-holding competitions, big wheel races, inflatable midways, 6 live music performances, bucket pong tournaments, beer gardens, street dances, and a family Bike Ride; and it all happens within the fences of Oktoberfest. Some new things added in 2016 were free checker rides home at the end of the night for festival-goers, a husker party with the game shown on a 25-foot LED screen, and VIP, Bus and RV Parking. This event also includes authentic German Cuisine from 5 different food vendors and Wine selections from a local Wine distributor. The signature Oktoberfest Beer is brewed right in Norfolk at a local Brewery called Divots Brewery. The committee takes pride in making Saturday “family day” and offering family activities for most of the day.
