This annual festival has added a third weekend this year and it’s bigger than ever. The outdoor patio space and stage have expanded so there’s easy access to food and games and more entertainment than in past years.

The Bavarian Feast takes place on Saturdays during the festival where you can indulge in Oktoberfest sausage, German schnitzel, spaetzle noodles, and other traditional meals along with craft beer. You can preorder some menu items this year such as the Oktoberfest Platter that comes with four large pretzels, eight pierogies and more.

You should show up hungry, there are four tasting food stations full of different tasty options as well as pretzels trees (with dip) on the tables. There will be entertainment lined up as you stuff your face. There will be a large selection of local craft beer and German brews to sip away on. Tickets are $45 per person.

In keeping with tradition, the Golden Keys band will be playing each weekend of the Oktoberfest Koolhaus performances. Kim Mitchell is one of the festival headliners as well as Dorfrocker, coming straight from Germany.

There are three VIP lounge areas if you want to level up your experience. You can enjoy the festival in comfortable seating, VIP washrooms, private bars, and unique vibes depending on which package upgrade you choose.

If you have little ones, there is a Kinderfest children’s event on October 1 and 2. There will be entertainment for kids, cookie decorating, carnival rides, fall treats and more. Besides this specific kids event, the festival is for those 19 years of age and older.
