Oktoberfest 2017

For 45 years people have been celebrating the German heritage and history 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. Held in conjunction with Fort Hays State University's Homecoming, Friday and Saturday are days you absolutely have to experience to understand why people travel to Hays every fall for Oktoberfest.
