SIX DAYS OF OKTOBERFEST FUN!
From bier barrel racing to stein hoisting and live music, there’s something here for Oktoberfest pros and first timers. Huge Zelts (tents), modeled after the Munich Oktoberfest, feature more than 103 different biers and eleven stages of entertainment.
A popular carnival offers rides for all ages. Kids 12 and under are free all days when accompanied by parents or guardians.
Special Experiences starting on Tuesday evening offer enriching programs to take you even further into one of the most truly authentic German Oktoberfests in the country!

Festival Wide Purchases
Credit cards will be accepted at all points of sale throughout the festival venue. Cash will not be accepted; however, OKT FestCards will be available from specially marked locations and kiosks to accept cash and provide a card to use at all points of sale.
Arts and Crafts vendors will accept credit cards and cash.
NOTE: No public parking will be available at the event site due to recent development along South Jackson Ave. Parking areas are located along Boston Avenue from 8th Street to 12th Street, serviced by upgraded SCHNELLE FAHRT (Fast Ride) shuttles. These shuttles also service Downtown Hotels, the Blue Dome District, Oklahoma State University Greenwood, the Marriott Southern Hills and the Promenade Mall. All shuttles operate one hour before and after event hours.
Food and drink are available all over the Tulsa Oktoberfest grounds. Payment by credit card only. A wide variety of vendors means great food choices, ranging from authentic German food to the more traditional American meal.
We’re proud to have our signature German bands performing at Tulsa Oktoberfest. Whether you’re a fan of traditional German music or local Oklahoma bands, Tulsa Oktoberfest has you covered. JugendZelt (Children’s Tent) has its own entertainment and activities for the kids.
Safety and Security
Your safety is our number one priority! We strive to make Oktoberfest a fun and safe experience for everyone, which does mean there are certain rules that everyone must abide by. Most of these have to do with what is, and what is not, allowed into the event.
All patrons entering the event will be subject to a thorough bag check and pat down for security before boarding the shuttles. Anyone attempting to bring prohibited items into the event may be subject to anything from a simple disposal of the items before entry to a complete denial of entry. Anyone attempting to bring a weapon into the event will immediately be turned over to the Tulsa City Police, who work closely with us and our security team. LARGE BAGS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED.
Please, no dogs are allowed EXCEPT on Sunday when ONLY registered dogs participating in the Dachshund Dash will be admitted.
