Columbus Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest Entrance at the Ohio State Fairgrounds

Thank you for joining us in the Gemutlichkeit and making the Schmidt’s Columbus Oktoberfest 2021 a success. We look forward to seeing you  the weekend after Labor Day, September 9, 10, 11 for the 2022 edition!

From day one the Schmidt family of Schmidt’s Restaurant und Sausage Haus has been a part of presenting this great festival. This makes the Columbus Oktoberfest unique in that it is the only Central Ohio Festival produced by a family business versus a city or major corporate entity. This community festival has been brewing up and serving smiles for 55 years. There truly is something for everyone. Tasty food, lively music, bountiful brews, and games galore. The Columbus Oktoberfest has it all. Bier Halls with ample dance floors, a delightful Wine Garten, a giant Kinderplatz (Children’s area) in the beautiful Natural Resources park, an eclectic Marktplatz (arts/crafts, commercial area), a full entertainment line up on three stages, a Vier Meiler (4 miler run/walk event) and of course delicious brats, cream puffs and all the other traditional items you expect.

The Columbus Oktoberfest invites you to celebrate “Gemutlichkeit” with us, a time that celebrates “the spirit of enjoying life” like none other. We hope to see you here!

Key members of our Schmidt’s Sausage Haus Und Restaurant team and their families are unfortunately dealing with Covid. This has depleted our already shorthanded team. We have made the decision to give everyone a week-long break to get healthy. In the meantime, you can still get your Schmidt’s fix through the Schmidt’s Sausage Trucks (one will be posted in front of the restaurant weather permitting from 11 am to 7 pm every day) and you can still ship nationwide at https://www.schmidthaus.com/shop/

 

We are tentatively planning to re-open the Schmidt’s Restaurant Und Sausage Haus on Friday, Jan. 14. We thank you for understanding and for your patience!
