Tickets are on sale now for Oktoberfest Fort Worth, a three-day Munich-style celebration at Panther Island Pavilion, Sept. 26-28. Early online ticket purchases are guaranteed a free 2019 commemorative Oktoberfest stein.

Oktoberfest Fort Worth guests enjoy traditional German food, bier, live music, dancing, shopping vendors and more. The festival kicks off with Thursday’s ceremonial Tapping of the Kegs, and the fun continues through Saturday with midway rides, dachshund races, stein hoist competitions, the Oktoberfest Run und Ride and more.

Entertainment will include traditional German music on multiple stages. New this year, Alex Meixner, nationally-acclaimed polka and Oktoberfest performer, will join the lineup. Alpenmusikaten, Walburg Boys, Alpine Village Band, Das Ist Lustig and Auf Geht’s will be back again with polka and Oktoberfest favorites.

Spaten will be served, along with other fall and Oktoberfest craft beers from around the country. Traditional German food offerings such as bratwursts, pretzels, strudel, schnitzel and German potato pancakes will also be available. Festival goers can enjoy the air-conditioned Spaten Hall as well as multiple outdoor and tented biergartens. Shopping vendors will offer traditional German lederhosen or dirndl and a variety of other German accessories.

Reata Restaurant brings back its unique pop-up German dining option, Reata Haus. The dining experience treats guests to authentic German meal options as well as snacks like kasebrett (cheeseboard), pretzel and sausage, all in a seated area in the air-conditioned Spaten Hall.

Festival tickets range from $5-$15 and are available for purchase through Sept. 25. Admission is free for children under 12 with a paying adult.
