It's a Dayton tradition that is rooted in beer, wine and good times. Oktoberfest, on the grounds of The Dayton Art Institute!
The 45th Oktoberfest takes place Saturday, September 24 and Sunday, September 25, 2016. Presented by Miller Lite, the community event includes artisans, unique international foods, one of the best selections of domestic, international and craft beers in the area, family-friendly art activities, live music, a Weingarten with a variety of international wines, and much more! Oktoberfest includes a fully covered main stage viewing area, an expanded craft beer tent with big-screen TVs for all of the weekend’s football action, and live music on two stages throughout the weekend.

Free RTA shuttles will also be available during Friday’s Lederhosen Lunch. Bicycle racks, courtesy of Bike Miami Valley, will be available near the main festival entrance at Belmonte Park and Riverview Avenue on Saturday and Sunday, noon–7:00 p.m.
