Events / Oktoberfest

The St. Peter Ambassadors host the annual Oktoberfest during the last weekend in September at the festgrounds near Minnesota Avenue and Grace Street in downtown St. Peter. 

Do crisp fall evenings cause you to glance wistfully at the lederhosen hanging in your closet? Does the thought of polka music prompt involuntary toe-tapping? Do you compulsively blurt out "dankeschön" whenever a friend passes the sauerkraut? If any of the preceding inspired a sense of deja vu then you are in luck! Oktoberfest is coming to St. Peter on Friday & Saturday, September 29 & 30, 2017.
