Best Ways to Celebrate Oktoberfest in Chicago

While not everyone can make it to Munich, Germany to celebrate Oktoberfest, Chicago has plenty of events to show off your Bavarian spirit. What started off as a wedding celebration 200 years ago is now a worldwide sensation. Here are the best places to celebrate Oktoberfest in Chicago.


Oktoberfest Chicago

Friday, September 27 – Sunday, September 29

Perhaps Chicago’s most spectacular fall celebration is Oktoberfest Chicago in Lakeview. The event takes places both inside and outside Chicago’s historic St. Alphonsus church. Join them on Saturday and Sunday for special family-friendly games known as Kinderfest.

Who said summer is over? Head to North Avenue beach just north of the Gold Coast for music, beer tastings, and more. Shore Club offers one of the last chances to enjoy the warm weather before Chiberia goes into full effect.
