The German Village Oktoberfest, now known as Columbus Oktoberfest, is noted as one of the top 100 events in North America. We are thrilled to announce that The Columbus Oktoberfest will once again return to the Ohio Expo Center! The Expo Center not only offers authentic-style facilities (historic century-old pavilions offering 100,000 square feet of covered space), but adjacent is the beautiful and spacious Natural Resources Park as well as paved parking and easy access to the event site.
Schmidt’s Restaurant stepped forward in 2009 and sponsored the celebration. Schmidt’s ran the festival for approximately ten years before the Society took over.
Location: Ohio Expo Center, 717 East 17th Avenue, Columbus, OH 43211
Authentic German food, beer and wine will be served throughout the festival. It’s the best German food around!

The Marketplatz will showcase fine arts and crafts.
A great FREE children’s area, the Nationwide Kinderplatz, set in the beautiful Natural Resources Park complete with bounce rides, crafts and entertainment.

This is a place so different, it’s like stepping back into a different place and time.
