On behalf of the Schmidt family and the Columbus Oktoberfest we would like to welcome you to the 50th Annual Columbus Oktoberfest. Not only does the event have a tremendous history in this city, but the Schmidt family adds 128 years of Columbus tradition as well!
We are thrilled to announce that The Columbus Oktoberfest will once again return to the Ohio Expo Center in 2015! The Expo Center not only offers authentic-style facilities (historic century-old pavilions offering 100,000 square feet of covered space). The Oktoberfest includes the beautiful and spacious Natural Resources Park as well as paved parking and easy access to the event site.
