Peoria Oktoberfest

19-21 September 2014

Brought to you by:


Peoria’s German-American Central Society, in partnership with the Peoria Park District, has brought this great legacy to Peoria. For 19 years, thousands of people from Peoria, surrounding communities, and around the world have attended Peoria’s Oktoberfest along the riverfront enjoying German culture, food, beer, and music.

Come and experience the magic world of the big tent where one leaves Peoria and enters Germany! Enjoy delicious food, the lively entertainment! A wide variety of refreshments—including German beers and wine. There are several children’s activities—especially the  Lindenhof Puppet Theatre. Enjoy the German Heritage Tent with exhibits that highlight the German culture and heritage in Central Illinois and their important contributions to the city of Peoria.

Five area hotels are offering special offers and rates for this year’s events. To get the rates, contact the hotels directly and mention: Oktoberfest Special 2014. Each reservation will receive a Welcome Packet. The package will include information on Oktoberfest in addition to local area attractions, combined with special novelties to enhance your Oktoberfest experience ($35 value).

Join us for our 3rd Das Bier Run 5k! Walkers are welcome - and costumes! Prizes will be awarded. Every participant will receive a commemorative stein.
