The Saint Paul Oktoberfest celebrates the proud Germanic heritage of Saint Paul’s North End neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods. Germans are the largest single immigrant group in Minnesota and many parishes and schools in the area were founded by German immigrants.
Location: Historic Schmidt Brewery
900 W 7th Street St. Paul, MN, 55102 , Saint Paul, Minnesota
From Rice Street to Rice Park and now the Historic Schmidt Brewery, the demand for more authentic German culture in Minnesota has continued to push the Munich-style St. Paul Oktoberfest to grow even bigger. What makes an Oktoberfest more authentic than others? For starters, the event opens the very same days as Munich in September. The event features a horse-drawn parade, a hammer and spigot keg tapping by public official, competitive races, a wedding ceremony, and a carnival-like atmosphere that’s fun for all ages. The 18th Annual St. Paul Oktoberfest returns to the Historic Schmidt Brewery on Friday, September 15 from 4-10pm and Saturday, September 16 from 10am-10pm. Free to attend. To enjoy alcoholic beverages, wristbands are $5 with valid 21+ID.Visit our website Add To Itinerary
