On Monday, July 6, local organizers announced that the event, slated for October 2-4, 2020, would not be held in-person out of precaution due to the increasing spread of COVID-19.

Traditionally, Oktoberfest celebrates Fredericksburg’s German heritage with four stages of continuous oompah music, arts, crafts, shopping, a children's area, 50 varieties of American, Texas and imported beers, Texas Wine Country selections, great food and fun all weekend long! 

Oktoberfest takes place at Marktplatz in downtown Fredericksburg, Texas the first weekend of October, and as the largest festival of the year, planning ahead is a must.
