Complete with traditional German music, polka dancing and food and beer. The historic and quaint backdrop of Saint Anthony Main and the natural beauty of the Mississippi River bank make for the idyllic Oktoberfest setting. Admission and music will be FREE for all ages. I.Ds will be required to obtain a wristband for purchasing beer and wine.

Patrons will enjoy authentic German food from an array of great imported beers in our Biergartens. Join in the fun and games such as the beer barrel roll and the Hammerschlagen (nail driving).

Oktoberfest fall festival is located along Main Street S.E. on the banks of the Mississippi River adjacent to St. Anthony Main. Most of the events are held under tents and under the Central Ave Bridge, protected from the weather, so the event will be held rain or shine.

In loving memory of our founder, Ira Heilicher

On Aug. 1, Mpls Riverfront Arts and Events suffered the tragic loss of it's founder and president, Ira Heilicher.

The Mpls Riverfront Arts and Events is the not for profit organization that funds and produces Oktoberfest Fall Festival on the Mpls Riverfront.

Ira was dedicated to promoting the beautiful and historic Minneapolis Riverfront District.

We will honor his legacy by continuing his work as soon as we can.

Please stay tuned for updates and more information.
