The Chattanooga Market presents the 20th annual Chattanooga Oktoberfest® –  a two-day festival on Saturday, October 9th and Sunday, October 10th. The weekend features German accents such as a live oompah music, cultural food offerings and an expanded selection of beer, food and fun.

The festival began 19 years ago and has continued to grow over the years. “This year is special,” says Chris Thomas, Executive Director of the Chattanooga Market. “COVID prevented us from holding Oktoberfest in 2020 (along with so many other events). We’re excited to be returning in 2021, knowing that locals and visitors will be looking forward to coming back and have a good time.”

Saturday: 10am-8pm
Sunday: 10am-5pm

Chattanooga Oktoberfest® is an annual must-attend festival for locals and tourists alike, come enjoy this FREE event. Festive German attire highly recommended!
