Danke Schön!
Thank you for coming out and supporting the 2021 Schmidt’s Columbus Oktoberfest. We had great weather, great attendance and great fun.
Check out the video clip from this year’s festivities and mark your calendars for the 2022 Columbus Oktoberfest September 9, 10, 11. Can’t wait to see you!

COVID-19 STATEMENT:   We ask that patrons, exhibitors and vendors abide by all CDC, local and State Government mandates in place at the time of the event dates. If not vaccinated, please wear your mask. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place. By participating at the event, this constitutes your understanding, and the understanding by all those working with you, of this risk and you each voluntarily assume such risks. The Huff’s Promotions staff, the Columbus Oktoberfest Committee, Schmidt’s, Concessions by Cox or the Ohio Expo Center Commission cannot be held liable if you or anyone working with you contracts COVID-19.

From day one the Schmidt family of Schmidt’s Restaurant und Sausage Haus has been a part of presenting this great festival. This makes the Columbus Oktoberfest unique in that it is the only Central Ohio Festival produced by a family business versus a city or major corporate entity. This community festival has been brewing up and serving smiles for 55 years. There truly is something for everyone. Tasty food, lively music, bountiful brews, and games galore. The Columbus Oktoberfest has it all. Bier Halls with ample dance floors, a delightful Wine Garten, a giant Kinderplatz (Children’s area) in the beautiful Natural Resources park, an eclectic Marktplatz (arts/crafts, commercial area), a full entertainment line up on three stages, a Vier Meiler (4 miler run/walk event) and of course delicious brats, cream puffs and all the other traditional items you expect.

The Columbus Oktoberfest invites you to celebrate “Gemutlichkeit” with us, a time that celebrates “the spirit of enjoying life” like none other. We hope to see you here!
