Oktoberfest at the Market

As Chattanooga’s oldest and largest Oktoberfest celebration, our festival draws crowds locally and regionally each year. Many come to enjoy the sights, smells, and sounds of the German traditions, bringing their families for a day of entertainment, shopping, and live musical performances. The annual festival includes an array of Oktoberfest traditions: brats and other German inspired foods, four bier gardens featuring over 99 local and season craft brews, and the infamous Wurstbrats Oompah Band!
