The fifth annual Oktoberfest in Abilene will take place on Sept. 17 in downtown Abilene.

Oktoberfest is the world’s largest Volkfest, featuring a beer festival and traveling funfair that occurs in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. It is a 16-18 day festival spanning from mid-or late-September to around the first Sunday in October with more than six-million people from around the world attending the event. Of course, this is all in Germany. While Abilene’s Oktoberfest may not be a big international event, it does the former justice with vintage authenticity and the good times provided, giving people the true experience of Oktoberfest.
