Despite what the meteorologists say, fall is here and it’s time for the inaugural Huntington Oktoberfest at Pullman Square in Downtown Huntington Saturday October 5 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Presented by HIMG and Kindred Communications, Huntington Oktoberfest will feature live music from the Full House Polka Players and Of the Dell, as well as contests including stein hoisting competitions, stein relay races and more.


German-inspired food will be served up by Bahnhof WVrsthaus & Biergarten as well as other area restaurants and food trucks including Marshall Hall of Fame Café, Backyard Pizza, Dang Good Cinnamon Rolls and Waffles and The Peddler.


The German, Oktoberfest, pumpkin and seasonal beers will be flowing with craft beer samples for $25 per person limited to the first 200 attendees.


Reeves Kirtner, vice president of Kindred Communications, says the response to Huntington Oktoberfest has been exceptional.   


“We are excited to help put together Huntington’s first Oktoberfest,” Kirtner said. “Everyone seems very excited that Huntington is having our own Oktoberfest.”


Admission is free to Huntington Oktoberfest; however, an additional ticket is required for the craft beer samples.
