OPENING CEREMONIES: KITCHENER - WATERLOO

The fanfare of trumpeters will be sounding from the rooftops on Friday, October 9th, 2020 at 11:15 am, announcing the Official Opening of the 52nd annual Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest, North America's largest Bavarian Festival!

Join us for our annual keg tapping. Visitors can look forward to German dance performances, festive music & food and drink. Make sure to stop off at our official retail store located at 17 Benton Street for all of your "oktoberfesting" needs!

Since 1969, the Festival has grown from a weekend event in one Festhalle, to a nine-day, internationally famous Festival that attracts more than 700,000 participants.


Honoured guests and dignitaries will accompany our President, Tim Beckett, the newly crowned Miss Oktoberfest and our favourite ambassador Onkel Hans in kicking off the nine days of celebration and the Spirit of Gemuetlichkeit.

This year's Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest is bigger and better than ever with over 40 Family & Cultural Events and Festhallen. There is certainly something for everyone at Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest.
