Recognized by several national publications as one of the country's best Oktoberfests, Tulsa's annual German-theme event is always cause for a huge celebration. The festival kicks off on Friday, but activities really get underway with Saturday's parade, headed by the official "Bier Meister," and the fierce competition of the Bier Barrel Race. Of course, the real draw is all the delicious, authentic German food. Also unique to Tulsa's festival is a beer stein made each year by famed Oklahoma pottery company Frankoma. Buy one early; they sell out fast! Admission is $3, age 12 and younger are free.
Went to Oktoberfest to see Arts and Crafts. Area used to have good handmade arts and crafts. Today, only saw a few handmade crafts, lots of buy/sell items and junk. When I asked the people in charge, they stated that's why they now call the area exhibitors instead of artists and crafters. They stated that they were in competion with War Eagle and Affair of the Heart. That is true but they have been in competion with War Eagle for the last 10 years. All they want in the money for booths and could care less if the buying public only gets to buy junk. If they are going to advertize Arts and Crafts then they need to police the area of the junk and bring back the good arts and crafts people to the show. Oklahoma has lots of great artists and crafters and to say that they can't get them is wrong. The Oktoberfest is highly rated and to have such a poor arts and crafts area is a terrible shame and a blight on the reputation of the show. We have been to several other smaller Oktoberfests around the US and believe that their festivals are better because they have better arts and crafts areas. People want to have other things to do than just drink.

Of all the Oktoberfest festivals, I have to say this one is probably the best most festive of them all! I dont know if it is much of a family affair due to the serving of beer, but they do that at the fair, so why not! Lots of fun
Was born in Tulsa, moved away, moved back...had never been able to see Oktoberfest. Was able to go this year with my parents, my kids & my grandkids - who, by the way, also had a blast!!! Even when the electricity oompah-ed, the band just came down on the dance floor & continued on...took a full water bottle & banged on a trunk for a drum...one of the guys played spoons on the audience's knees, and walked thru all sides of the audience, really playing to the crowd!!! I didn't have the pleasure of beer-tasting, but was real appreciative of the wristband for designated drivers...I was able to have two Pepsis free...what a great idea! Had a "lot" of wonderful food...things I wouldn't have made at home just to try; was really fun everyone getting something different, then each of us tast-testing! Wonderful, wonderful experience...will definitely go again!
