Held in the city’s riverside Festhalle, the permanent home of the festivities, the celebration is the longest-running of its kind in the United States. 


Helen GA will be kicking off their Octoberfest this September! Traditional dancing, food, and, of course, beer from September through October. Dust off your lederhosen and dirndls!
