Get ready for the 5th Annual Effingham Oktoberfest! There will be something for everyone at this year’s two day celebration of all things German.

 Last year was the fourth Effingham Oktoberfest and it was a great success. We saw over 5,000 people visit the festival and had 85+ vendors. There was a constant line at the food vendors booths – especially for the one booth with German foods.

 This year’s event will be even bigger and better. We will continue to have arts and crafts vendors, food, beverage, children’s activities and non stop entertainment all weekend long. Enjoy a bratwurst while browsing among the handcrafted arts and crafts on display from area artists and craftsmen. Pull out your leiderhosen and do the Chicken Dance with the kids. Stay for the evening concerts on the main stage. Bring your chairs or blankets and enjoy the evening with the family.

 We have a new location this year – bigger and better!!!!!  The parking will be on-site and we’ll have lots of space.  The Effingham Oktoberfest will be held 6755 Prosperity Drive in Rincon – location is immediatley to the south of Lowes behind Fuller Chevrolet and Farmer’s Furniture.  The Festival is free and open to the public.

If you are interested in being a food or arts and crafts vendor, please print, fill out and mail back our vendor application and hold harmless agreement. Please – no buy/sell merchandise.
