Throughout the years, Cullman has been host to many festive events, from Pioneer Parades, to Strawberry Days, to Oktoberfest. No matter what event is celebrated, this community shows her pride and support.
The first official Oktoberfest in Cullman was held in 1982 and had a theme: Die Duetsche colonie von Nord Alabama-heir the living is good! Every year after, starting the first Saturday in October, we have one goal; to celebrate Cullman’s German heritage.
Events include: car show, craft fair, senior day, entertainment, dancing, children's activities and of course, lots of German Food, and more! Traditional German music can be heard daily at the Festhalle Mark Platz; women in Dirndl’s and men in Lederhosen are common appearances and everyone dances to the variety of music offered nightly. Come visit the beer garden, and enjoy the festivities. As we plan for the future, more events and sponsors are added, but we still have one goal: to celebrate Cullman’s German heritage. Come join us!
