Presented by Deutsches Haus’, Oktoberfest NOLA brings Germany’s beloved celebration to the Crescent City for three weekends filled with German culture, cuisine, and fun. Fest-goers can expect a host of authentic German foods, live music, dances, and activities.
Don’t miss your chance to partake in this European-inspired fun on October 7-8, October 14-15, and October 21-22, 2022 at the Deutsches Haus center just across the street from Bayou St. John at City Park.
Traditional German staples and classics will be available for purchase at Oktoberfest. Favorites such as brats, sauerkraut, Bavarian-style pretzels, German cheeses, and more will pair perfectly with the wide selection of German beers, wines, and schnapps. Finish off your meal with warm apple strudel or Bavarian roasted nuts.
