Prost! Oktoberfest returns to Columbus for annual celebration

Mike Thomas

Roll out the barrel and don your lederhosen— the 54th Annual Columbus Oktoberfest celebration returns to the Ohio Expo Center on September 6- 8.

With three stages of entertainment in the 100-year-old historic covered pavilions, a craft beer garten, a karaoke contest, and of course, plenty of polka music, this yearly celebration is free to attend and fun for the whole family.

A designated kids area will offer an arts and crafts section, inflatables, jugglers, and representatives from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. There will also be a children’s parade on Sunday at 4 PM.


Sunday will also be the day of the ultimate test of strength: The Stone Toss (which is exactly what it sounds like).

Admission is free of charge. Food and beverages at the event will be sold by tickets, which are sold in strips of 10 for $10. On-site parking at the expo center is also $10.
