Events Description

While Canada’s largest Bavarian Festival is taking a different form this year, we are committed to bringing as much of our favourite festival to you through virtual events, small gatherings and some very special contests. Onkel Hans, Tante Frieda and our Oktoberfest Ambassador (Erin Wetzel) are with us in spirit and we encourage everyone to don your Tracht, raise a stein, enjoy delicious Bavarian cuisine, polka around and toast all that we love about Bavarian Culture and our communities.

Tune in on Friday, October 9th and Saturday, October 10th as the Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest LIVE event will be streaming Oktoberfest-themed, family-friendly entertainment with a variety of activities for all to enjoy!

This free event will allow viewers to celebrate the Spirit of Gemütlichkeit at home while practicing physical distancing or celebrating within their bubble. The event is proudly supported by Schneiders, a long-time festival sponsor, and is a fundraiser for the Onkel Hans Food Drive, benefitting the Food Bank of Waterloo Region.

Watch a live keg tapping ceremony to kick off the festival, as well as concerts from your favourite Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest bands, cultural displays of music and dancing, kids entertainment and many interactive activities like cooking demos, trivia, and more.

The live stream will be jammed packed full of Oktoberfest-themed entertainment, such as The Golden Keys, The Black Forest Band, The Seven Castles, and other Festhalle favourites, as well as family-friendly programming.


Tickets: This event is FREE with a donation to the Onkel Hans Food Drive which benefits the Food Bank of Waterloo Region.
