Are you ready to toast the beginning of fall? Put on your lederhosen and raise a glass to the 2017 Oktoberfest on River Street. This all-ages festival brings a touch of Germany to Savannah just a few blocks from our Savannah Historic District Hotel. Spend the weekend of October 6-8 enjoying tasty food, watching live entertainment, and of course, checking out the beer garden. And don't leave without seeing the famous Wiener Dog Races!
Taste your way through your favorite ales and craft beer in the outdoor beer garden. You can sip selections from the Savannah region as well as far-flung places like Germany and beyond.
Wiener Dog Races
Everyone looks forward to this annual competition that draws the cutest dogs in Savannah. This famous event is always the highlight of the festival. Cheer on the tiny wiener dogs as they run (or don't run!) to glory.
Germany's celebrated sausages take a starring role at the River Street Oktoberfest. Sample all kinds of bratwurst and wash it down with your favorite beer. There will also be plenty of authentic German cuisine available to taste all weekend long.
Head to the Arbor Stage to see traditional German dancing and live music. Get ready to put on your lederhosen and join in the fun!
Oktoberfest on River Street is one of the top things to do in Savannah every fall. Reserve a room at our Savannah, Georgia hotel for the weekend and be just steps from the fun. Cheers! Or as they say in German, Prost!
