Peoria Oktoberfest

18th– 20th September 2015

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.

Join us for our 4th Das Bier Run 5k! Walkers are welcome - and costumes! Prizes will be awarded. Every participant will receive a commemorative stein.

Sunday, September 20th @ Riverfront Park

BONUS: Registration for the race gets you in to Oktoberfest!
