Oktoberfest USA welcomes thousands of people—loyal, returning fans and new festers alike—annually to beautiful La Crosse, Wisconsin to celebrate German culture and the centuries-old Oktoberfest tradition. The longest-running community Oktoberfest celebration in the Midwest, Oktoberfest USA began in 1961. This inclusive celebration fosters a spirit of Gemütlichkeit (friendliness) among all Oktoberfesters by serving traditional German cuisine and beverages, encouraging traditional German attire, and offering numerous activities inspired or influenced by German culture. The Oktoberfest USA celebration runs for three days and features the Torchlight parade, the Maple Leaf parade, a community-nominated royal family, diverse musical performances (including traditional German music), carnival rides and many additional events.
