Richmond Oktoberfest at the Showplace

Hier ist es!  Das grosse Deutsches Fest...Oktoberfest...hier in mehr dann 5000 jedes Jahr!

Here it is!  The BIG German Party - in Richmond...with more than 5,000 attendees each year.

In order to make a group reservation I have to pay for all tickets in advance. Therefore, to have a seat at our reserved table, you will have to buy your ticket through me in advance.  Tickets are $8.00/per person.  To be included in our group reservation, you will need to pay me through paypal or by check no later than October 6th.  If paying me by check, please e-mail me and ask me for my mailing address.  Once you have paid for this event, I cannot offer you a refund if you are unable to attend.  If I find someone to "buy" your ticket in your place, I can refund you.  Otherwise, you will be out the $8 ticket charge.


The Annual Richmond Oktoberfest is the largest German / American Oktoberfest festival in the state of Virginia, playing host to nearly 5,000 people over the two day indoor event. This event is a sample of German Bavarian culture at its best. It's for the whole family to enjoy. Don't have a babysitter? Don't worry. Children up to a certain age are admitted for free (visit the Facts page for specific age requirements). The Chicken dance is and always has been a favorite of the kids (young and old).

At the Richmond Oktoberfest, in the heated / air conditioned building you will find the entire exhibition hall decorated in traditional German flare. The Hall is filled with long running tables adorned with white table cloth coverings with chairs running along both sides, a band stage and large dance floor at the center of attention, and decorated Alpine Chalet booths offering a variety of German Foods including:
Bratwurst, Knockwurst, Broiled Chicken, Pork Roast, & Sauerkraut, Breads & Pastries, Warm, Pretzels, Potato Pancakes, German and American beer and wine, Soft Drinks, Coffee, Bottled Water, Souvenir merchandise, and much more...
