Willkommen! Oktoberfest coming to Cullman

CULLMAN — For more than three decades, Cullman has celebrated its German beginnings with a family-friendly festival offering all things German.

Cullman Oktoberfest, one of North Alabama’s largest and most anticipated events, will take place at Depot Park downtown Sept. 29-Oct. 1.

During the three-day festival, the community rolls out the welcome mat and invites everyone to enjoy a multitude of fun activities, including a biergarten, an arts and crafts show, live German music, kids’ activities, a bratwurst eating contest and more.

Oktoberfest gets underway at 4 p.m. Sept. 29 with the opening of the biergarten. Official opening ceremonies are slated for 6 p.m. and, throughout the evening, there will be live music, the crowning of Miss Oktoberfest, carriage rides and candlelight walking tours.

Friday’s festivities get underway at 4 p.m. and include a children’s area, a kids’ pickle eating contest, stein-hoisting contests for kids and adults, carriage rides and more live music.

Family-friendly fun resumes 9 a.m., Oct. 1 when the arts and crafts show and children’s area open. Biergarten and food vendors featuring tasty German food open at 10 a.m. and additional activities lined up for the day include wiener dog races, live music, pet costume contest and parade, stein hoisting and best dressed contests for kids and adults, carriage rides and a brat eating contest.
