Save the Date! Dayton’s favorite fall festival, Oktoberfest 2018, returns September 21-23! A Dayton tradition since 1972, Oktoberfest is the museum’s largest annual fundraiser and vital to everything we do at The Dayton Art Institute.
Oktoberfest features family activities, outstanding artisans, live entertainment throughout the weekend, delicious food, a Weingarten, and, of course, an amazing selection of more than 40 different craft and international beers. Oktoberfest includes a fully covered Main Stage area and Food Court, and a “TV Cave” with four big-screen TVs for all the weekend football action. Live music will be featured in the food tent and on the main stage. Two large tents feature more than 60 artisans, including many who are new to Oktoberfest.
