Oktoberfest is an iconic Bavarian festival that brings people together from all corners of the globe to celebrate German culture, music, and, of course, beer! Last year was Meridian's first Oktoberfest with over 9,000 people in attendance. This year we're expecting even more!

We have a fantastic lineup of activities planned to keep the excitement going all day long. Whether you're a music enthusiast, a foodie, or someone who enjoys lively contests, there's something for everyone at our Oktoberfest.
