Bavarian Bierhaus Oktoberfest

Milwaukee’s original Oktoberfest celebrates over 60 years of great music, beer and food.
The oldest and most authentic Bavarian Oktoberfest represents a true Oktoberfest every fall in Heidelberg Park at the Bavarian Bierhaus. Hosted under mural-decorated out-buildings reminiscent of Munich, Germany, it is open Thursday to Sunday for five consecutive weekends, Sept. 2-4 through Sept. 30-Oct. 3.
Glendale’s Bavarian Bierhaus kicks off the Oktoberfest season with a special keg tapping event on Friday night, with free beer for those in attendance while it lasts.
The festival makes use of Heidelberg Park’s spacious area and over 300 picnic tables, allowing patrons to celebrate all things German in a safe manner. Attendees can also reserve picnic tables that can fit up to eight people per table in Fest Hall for $30 on Fridays and $35 on Saturdays and Sundays.

Music, Beer, Food and Music

Continuous entertainment includes traditional German brass bands, Schuhplatter folk dancing, singing, yodeling, sing-alongs, traditional German eats such as spanferkel and rollbraten, German beer and dancing for everyone.
