Here’s your North Dakota Oktoberfest parties for 2021:
At this point we have checked for 2021 dates on all Oktoberfest events. Some websites had not been updated at all for this year, but where a date was available or a cancellation confirmed, we've updated our listing. We hope you find a fantastic event near you, and Prost!
All events showing 2021 dates need to be verified to confirm that changes to the schedule were not made by the organizers after publication here, due to COVID-19, weather/natural disasters, or other reasons. We do not run these events, and would hate for anyone to go out of their way only to find the event had been canceled after releasing a date. Please click through to the event website to confirm!
