La Crosse in Wisconsin takes pride in holding the longest-running Oktoberfest festival across the Midwest. This colorful tradition began in 1961. Since then, the celebration of German heritage has run on 1 Oktoberfest Strasse every year between late September and early October.

Oktoberfest in La Crosse is much more than just a beer fest. The street festivities consist of vibrant events, highlighting each day of the weekend. For example, you can attend a Craft Beer Night at 4 pm on Friday. Saturday is famous for the Tapping of the Golden Keg, scheduled for 11 am. Also, Sunday morning is marked with a huge Maple Leaf Parade taking over the streets at 10 am. The fun-packed program offers tons of entertainment for the whole family.
