Oktoberfest at Dayton Art Institute

The Dayton Art Institute's largest annual fundraiser is back!

The 48th Oktoberfest takes place Saturday, September 28 and Sunday, September 29, 2019. A Dayton tradition since 1972, Oktoberfest 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.

Join us on Friday, September 27, 11 a.m. - 2 p.m., as we kick off Oktoberfest weekend with the annual Lederhosen Lunch, followed by the Preview Party from 7 p.m to 11 p.m.


Getting to and from Oktoberfest is easy, with free shuttle service, including shuttles for the Preview Party. Follow the Oktoberfest signs and park for free at the University of Dayton parking lot behind the Marriott, just off Patterson Boulevard, and take the free shuttles directly to and from both the Preview Party and Oktoberfest.

On Saturday and Sunday, you may also park downtown and take a free RTA Oktoberfest shuttle, with stops along Wilkinson, Monument, Main Street, Second Street and Fifth Street in the Oregon District. Free RTA shuttles will also be available during the Lederhosen Lunch.

Bicycle racks will be available near the main festival entrance at Belmonte Park and Riverview Avenue on Saturday and Sunday, noon–7:00 p.m.

All proceeds from the event are to help benefit The Dayton Art Institute. This is one Dayton tradition you won't want to miss!
