The delightful Swiss-esque (if that’s a word) enclave of New Glarus comes alive with New Glarus Oktoberfest September 27-30, 2018.

Sponsored by the New Glarus Brewery, there’s plenty of lederhosen, live music, and a ceremonial keg tapping of New Glarus Brewery’s Staghorn Oktoberfest beer. You can also enjoy chainsaw wood carving, an antique tractor pull, wagon rides, activities for the kids, food stands, plus a fondue demonstration and tasting on Sunday afternoon. Admission to New Glarus Oktoberfest is FREE!

New Glarus is reached via Highways 39 and 69, just 30 minutes south of Madison.
