“Festland” is a historical perspective of Oktoberfest USA which provides our patrons with an opportunity to learn about the past 57 years of our festival. Your hosts are royal families from past years who are eager to share with you their experiences and perspectives on one of the Midwest’s most recognized festivals.
Stop by often because you never know who you may encounter.
Festland houses pictures, memoirs, timelines, Oktoberfest button collections, and is resting spot for our former Festmasters and Fraus, who also offer their own special buttons and tell their own versions of the stories of Oktoberfest. You may also purchase a copy of “The Fest of Times” — a history of the first 50 years of Oktoberfest.
Please stop by Festland and carve out your own piece of history as you travel through the Festgrounds and visit out various food vendors, entertainment stages, events, parades and beer tents to enjoy the other events that make up Oktoberfest USA!
Festland moves to a new home in 2017. Look for the Festland tent just inside the main entrance of the Southside grounds.
