Welcome to the Fremont Oktoberfest website!!

Autumn gets ushered in with the Fremont Oktoberfest. Historically, in old Germany, the brewing season began with the fall harvest of barley and hops and any beer left at harvest time had to be consumed before the new beer arrived. September was designated as the time to drink-up all of last season's beer. It officially became Oktoberfest in 1810, when Ludwig I, the Crown Prince of Bavaria declared a 16-day celebration in commemoration of his wedding.

Since most of us have to work on Monday and cannot party for 16 days, we invite you to experience how the Fremont Oktoberfest squeezes 16 days into one unbelievable weekend. The Fremont Oktoberfest will fire up the chainsaw, turn up the high-energy and tap over 50 distinct Northwest Micro brews in the beer garden.

New this year there will be Urban Carnival with classic carnival rides for both adults and children. Long standing Oktoberfest favorites will be returning as well. There will be live music on two stages, the Stranger Micro brew Garden, the Brew-ha-ha 3 Mile Fun Run, and a wide assortment of local arts and crafts, imported treasures, and festive treats as well as traditional German food. And everyone's favorite… the Fremont Arts Council once again brings us their Annual Texas Chainsaw Pumpkin Carving Contest. 

We hope you will enjoy this year's Fremont Oktoberfest and thank Ludwig for creating a wonderful way to celebrate autumn.

The street fair, kids area and music are FREE for everyone to enjoy! The 4th annual Brew-Ha-Ha 3 mile Fun run will take place on Sunday morning. Admission to the Stranger Micro brew Garden is $20, which includes a souvenir cup and 5 beer tickets. The souvenir cup is only available while supplies last. Access to the beer-tasting garden is restricted to people 21 years old (and older) with a valid ID. Designated drivers receive free soft drinks. Safe rides home are provided to those in need. This is a "rain or shine" event. 

Read about past Fremont Oktoberfest's at USA Today considered the Fremont Oktoberfest one of the Top Ten Oktoberfests in the World. According to All About Beer Magazine "The Fremont Oktoberfest is worth attending because of the funk factor.

All of this happens as a fundraiser for the Fremont Chamber of Commerce. The mission of the Chamber is to promote the Fremont neighborhood, area merchants, and to provide funding for local art groups, schools, community events and overall promoting Fremont for what it is today "The Center of the Universe," and have a lot of Fremont fun doing it.
