It's a Dayton tradition that is rooted in beer, wine and good times. Oktoberfest, on the grounds of The Dayton Art Institute!
The 46th Oktoberfest takes place Saturday, September 23 and Sunday, September 24, 2017. 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.
Join us on Friday, September 22, 11 a.m. - 2 p.m., as we kick off Oktoberfest weekend with the annual? Lederhosen Lunch. RTA will provide free shuttles from downtown Dayton to the Lederhosen Lunch. Street parking is also available in the neighborhood surrounding The DAI.
The easiest way of getting to and from the museum during Oktoberfest is by using the free shuttle services. Look for the Oktoberfest signs and park for free at the University of Dayton lot behind the Marriott, just off Patterson Boulevard, and take free shuttles directly to and from Oktoberfest. On September 23–24, you may also park downtown and take a free RTA Oktoberfest shuttle, with stops along Monument Avenue, Wilkinson Street, Second Street, Main Street, and Fifth Street. 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 p.m.
Street parking around The Dayton Art Institute will be very limited. Limited handicap accessible parking will be available in the Masonic Temple and Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church lots during Oktoberfest, strictly on a first-come, first-served basis.

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