Lace up your dirndl, buckle your leder­ho­sen and dig into our ul­ti­mate guide to Ok­to­ber­fest in the Mid­west.

If any place knows how to pull off a good Ok­to­ber­fest (out­side of Deutsch­land, that is), it’s the Mid­west. A lot of us have Ger­man in our blood. Emi­grants from Ger­many built many of our towns. They gave us brats, beer, cuckoo clocks and a fall party tra­di­tion dat­ing back to an 1810 royal wed­ding in Mu­nich. So lace up your dirndl, buckle your leder­ho­sen and crack open our guide to all things oom­pah. First tip: Ok­to­ber thrills start in Septem­ber.
