From day one the Schmidt family of Schmidt’s Restaurant und Sausage Haus has been a part of presenting this great festival. This makes the Columbus Oktoberfest unique in that it is the only Central Ohio Festival produced by a family business versus a city or major corporate entity. This community festival has been brewing up and serving smiles for 50+ years. There truly is something for everyone. Tasty food, lively music, bountiful brews, and games galore. The Columbus Oktoberfest has it all. Bier Halls with ample dance floors, a delightful Wine Garten, a giant Kinderplatz (Children’s area) in the beautiful Natural Resources park, an eclectic Marktplatz (arts/crafts, commercial area), a full entertainment line up on three stages, a Vier Meiler (4 miler run/walk event) and of course delicious brats, cream puffs and all the other traditional items you expect.
The Columbus Oktoberfest invites you to celebrate “Gemutlichkeit” with us, a time that celebrates “the spirit of enjoying life” like none other. We hope to see you here!
