The date has been set for Oktoberfest 2018 in Hays! Make plans to book your hotel rooms early for the weekend of September 28, 2018 to enjoy Oktoberfest and Fort Hays State University Homecoming!
For 46 years the Volga German Society has celebrated German history, heritage, and homecoming at the annual Oktoberfest. Municipal Park will be filled with the sound of Polka music, the smell of traditional bierocks and brats, and plenty of beer. In order to accommodate the locals and alumni returning to the area for Fort Hays State University’s Homecoming festivities, Oktoberfest takes place on the Friday of that weekend. The festival includes traditional food, beer, music, and in recent years, international cultures.
The German Market is NEW to this year's Hays Oktoberfest! So all you Bäckers get your recipes out and prepare for September 28th.
