Fairfield Bay plans annual OktoberFest

The Fifth Annual OktoberFest at the Bay is planned 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, at the Fairfield Bay Conference and Visitor Center.

“It’s hard to believe we’ve been doing this for five years,” said Fairfield Bay Mayor Paul Wellenberger. “Everyone just LOVES how we welcome fall in the Ozarks, and we’re excited to have the opportunity to host this family-friendly festival again this year. And you get to see our new Cobblestone Hotel in its final stage of completion!” 

Free and open to the public, OktoberFest features authentic German treats and drinks, traditional music and lots of activities for kids and adults. Brats, German potato salad and other treats will be available for purchase from 3 to 7:30 p.m. 

A traditional Volksmarch kicks off at 4 p.m., followed by “a traditional Roll out the Barrel and Grand March” at 6 p.m. Traditional dance music is planned 6 to 9 p.m.

The visitor center is located at 110 Lost Creek Parkway in Fairfield Bay. For a complete list of events and times, as well as other information, call 501.884.4202 or go to VisitFairfieldBay.com/Oktoberfest or FairfieldBayConferenceCenter.com.
